Malt whisky is the ‘original’ whisky of Scotland. Malt whisky is made only from malted barley, in two (occasionally three) copper pot stills, by a batch process. ‘Single’ malt whisky is the product of an individual distillery. Read More »
An extraordinary find, this is one of the rarest single malts we've ever come across. Glamis is the single malt from the long-extinct Glenfyne distillery (sometimes also known as Glendarroch), which was situated in Ardrishaig on the edge of Loch Fyne and closed in 1937.
Bottled in a beautiful crystal decanter, this gorgeous fruity Bowmore has been declared by more than one of our customers to be the best that they have ever tasted. After such a long period of ageing, the malt has taken on a very elegant character and shows restrained peat combined with ethereal layers of exotic fruit. A serious, subtle malt that demands the drinker's time and full attention.
We tried this at the 2009 Whisky Show in London and it was definitely the star of the show. Unbelievably mellow, very complex with elegant fruit and soft oak. No one could believe that this was so old. A real classy whisky which should have a much higher price tag. If this was bottled by the distillery we would be looking at tens of thousands of pounds.
Very few malts can stand anything like as much ageing as this Benromach has managed. Which makes it all the more amazing that the whisky inside the bottle can still seem so fresh. Of course, over fifty-five years, the angels get to take more than their fair share - only eighty-three bottles were yielded from the cask. MAXIMUM ONE PER CUSTOMER
A rare bottling of cask strength 1967 Aberlour complete with drinking accoutrements - four crystal glasses, a water jug, a bottle of Speyside water and a case to transport it all to your favourite drinking location.
The first edition of the legendary Black Bowmore - distilled in 1964 and matured in oloroso casks for 29 years before being unleashed on the world. Only 2000 bottles of this were released and there are only few of them left in the wild...
A bottling of a single cask, part of the same batch of Oloroso casks that produced Black Bowmore. This particular cask yielded just 99 bottles, of which only 95 went on sale. This was originally earmarked by Bowmore as the very best of these famous casks and tasting it, you can see why - all the flavours are super-concentrated.
Very similar in character to the Dalmore 50yrs in the crystal decanter (they are from the same batch of stock), this is an earlier presentation from the 1970s and is packaged in a smart black ceramic decanter within an individual wooden case. Dalmore ages better than perhaps any other Highland distillery, and gives Macallan a run for its money in the quality stakes, but stocks are always very low.
A true rarity - as well as being incredibly old, this bottle was never officially released for general sale. The remains of a batch bottled in crystal for the Japanese market in 1984, these bottles were given to staff and guests at an event to commemorate the re-opening of the distillery in the early '90s.
A very rare and difficult to find officially-bottled Glenfiddich from, we believe, the 1930s. This museum-worthy round bottle (Glenfiddich did not appear in its now-iconic triangular bottle until 1963) is one of the earliest Glenfiddichs we've found, and represents a significant piece of whisky history.
Number 3 of only 20 such sets produced, this set comprises exquisite bespoke Rifle and Shotgun Cleaning Kit made by Gun & Rifle Makers William & Son and a bottle of Glenfarclas 1963 from cask 179 as part of their Family Cask series. The kit contains a brass plate that will be engraved with the initials of the recipient - truly unique.
A rare 1973 vintage Macallan, released as part of their Fine & Rare series. From cask number 6098, this was bottled at 30 years of age at full strength of over 60 percent, the angels seemingly weren't that thirsty, which is all the better for the rest of us.
A very rare and exclusive release by Gordon & Macphail in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Bottled from a first fill sherry cask laid down four days before the Queen's coronation and decanted on its 60th birthday, 2nd February 2012. A beautiful celebratory decanter presented in a handmade wooden box.
