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 »
This is the American version of Black Bowmore 2nd edition, the second of the three extraordinary Oloroso cask 1964 Bowmores released in the mid-1990s. An almost unfathomable concentration and intensity of flavour, and with the perfect balance of fruit, peat and power.
One of a handful of pre-Local-Barley cask strength Springbanks of quite stunning intensity. Bottled at the turn of the 1990s, we believe that these heavily-sherried Springbanks rival Black Bowmore for sheer quality and flavour concentration - yet they are far rarer, being bottled from single casks. Amongst the greatest expressions ever bottled by this legendary distillery.
An impressive old bottle of Glenfiddich, produced back in the 1940s when Glenfiddich was one of the only single malts seen on the market. These days they're still number one, although they have a bit more competition now.
A bottle of the extremely rare (just 62 bottles were released) Benriach Vestige 1966. “Vestige” has been so named because it represents a moment in time, a small trace of something very special that, once lost, can never be replaced. This is truly a piece of the distillery’s history.
Please note, this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
A truly legendary Laphroaig from the 1974 vintage, this heavily-sherried 31 year old was a limited edition of around 900 bottles produced for a French retailer and scored a whopping 95 points from Serge Valentin on Whiskyfun before capping that with a Gold Medal and the Non Plus Ultra award for the highest scoring whisky out of all the entries at the Malt Maniacs Awards 2005. An acknowledged masterpiece.
A limited edition release of 25 year old Macallan, produced in honour of the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977. On top of that it's also a rather rarely seen magnum size bottle, to make sure you had enough to go around your street party...
An incredibly rare Bowmore blend, this Islay Legend bottle was one of just 25 made to be served at the ceremonial meal celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the distillery's takeover by Morrison Bowmore. Of the 25 bottles, it is thought that only around ten survived, being given to distillery VIPs after the meal.
After 2007's 'new' Black Bowmore, this White Bowmore is the second edition of the Noughties' 1964 Trilogy series, and has spent its life in bourbon casks, so should make for a very interesting contrast. Awarded 94 points from John Hansell in Malt Advocate, this was one of the most talked-about releases of 2008.
The final release in the new Bowmore 1964 trilogy, Gold Bowmore is a marriage of three bourbon casks plus the last (and supposedly the best) of the staggeringly good Oloroso casks from this momentous vintage.
Bottled in 2005 exactly fifty years to the day after it was distilled, this stunning Glenfarclas was hand-picked by George S. Grant to celebrate the Bicentenary of the birth of his Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather John Grant, a farmer and breeder of champion Aberdeen Angus cattle, who bought the Glenfarclas distillery in 1865. We believe that this could be the best malt ever released by one of our favourite distilleries.
Inspired by and named after the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, just 200 bottles of this Oloroso sherry cask 1964 vintage Dalmore have been released. IWSC 2012 - Gold Outstanding Medal - Whisky - Scotch
1964 seems to be something of a miracle vintage for Bowmore - not only did it produce Black Bowmore and the Oddbins Oloroso cask, but also this beautiful Fino sherry expression. Here the peat is restrained and subtle, leaving the way clear for a stunning, incredibly fruity Bowmore.
A very very special bottling, this is a vatting of the two oldest casks that were left at Ardbeg and comes in a suitably hefty 'museum piece' box. You even get some soft white gloves to caress it with.
1964 seems to be something of a miracle vintage for Bowmore - not only did it produce Black Bowmore and the Oddbins Oloroso cask, but also this beautiful Fino sherry expression. Here the peat is restrained and subtle, leaving the way clear for a stunning, incredibly fruity Bowmore that not everyone understood at the time of release, but which has since become a classic. There seems little chance that we will see another example of this style of Bowmore from this era again.
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.
