An independent release of single cask Bowmore, distilled in August 1980 and bottled in July 2004 at cask strength. What's more, it comes with a rather nifty replica copper still decanter, embossed with a name plate featuring the bottle number.
A 1969 vintage Springbank, released by independent bottlers Signatory after 30 years of maturation in cask number 1689. The decade was a real success for the distillery, who produced many stonking whiskies.

Please note this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
A 1953 vintage Glen Grant from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail. This was bottled in 2012 at the grand age of 58 years, all spent in a first fill sherry butt. Just 294 bottles were drawn from the cask. This bottling was given an average of 90 points by six of the Malt Maniacs.
A great old single cask Bowmore, bottled at cask strength by Duncan Taylor in July 2005. Distilled back in February 1968 and matured for 37 years this is quite intense for its strength and displays some classic Bowmore fruit as well as spice.
A 19 year old Cadenhead's bottling of whisky from Glenugie, who closed in 1983 without any official bottlings available. Fortunately folks like Cadenhead's had been buying and casks, giving us a chance to tastes treats such as this 1959 vintage, released in November 1978.
A limited edition release of 1966 vintage Ben Nevis, released at 26 years of age for the Japanese market. During the time the whisky was maturing, the distillery had closed and reopened twice, firstly from 1978 to 1984 and again from 1986 to 1990.
A 1966 vintage Glenrothes which was bottled exclusively for The Master of Malt to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the earliest record of Scotch whisky distillation. Matured for around 27 years and limited to only 50 bottles.
