An unboxed litre bottle of the first ever release of Lagavulin's Distillers Edition, now considered to be a legendary bottling. Distilled in 1979, this was finished in Pedro Ximenez casks to add rich sweetness to the already richly bodied Islay classic.
The second sensational OB Port Ellen 1978, bottled around the turn of the millennium as part of the Rare Malts series. This phenomenal dram was rated at 93 points by Serge Valentin of Whiskyfun, and its popularity and acclaim led to the revivial of interest in this classic closed distillery and thus to the birth of the annual Special Releases series.
A very rare distillery bottling of whisky from short lived Ben Wyvis. They closed in 1977 after a mere 12 years of production and as such bottlings are rather scarce, especially as time goes by. This is a cask strength, single cask bottling released after 27 years of maturation.
A bottle of no-age-statement whisky from short-lived Lowland distillery Glen Flagler. With the distillery only operating between 1964 and 1985, and not much single malt whisky released under their own label, this is a very rare bottling.
A half bottle of Talisker whisky, distilled in 1955. This was bottled in February 1995, just before reaching 40 years maturation. This single cask release has been bottled at a respectable cask strength of 52.9%.
An incredibly rare 1960s Glencadam 6yo Special Reserve in excellent condition for its age. A really beautiful bottle with a springcap, this is a fantastically well-preserved piece with a perfect level.
An old Samaroli bottling of Ardbeg 1976, bottled in 1993. Samaroli is a legendary Italian bottler and 1976 is known as one of the all-time great Ardbeg vintagese - at 17 years old and 46% this should be awesome.
In celebration of the 2011 Royal Wedding TWE has selected a single sherry cask of Port Ellen and bottled it on 29th April - the wedding day itself.
