One of the most exclusive releases from the distillery, The Royal Brackla 35 Year old is limited edition of just 100 decanters, produced to celebrate both the 200th anniversary of the distillery and the awarding of their Royal Warrant from King William IV back in 1833.
A 1966 vintage Macallan, released a decade or so ago as part of the distillery's Fine & Rare series. This amazingly ambitious range was designed to showcase Macallan throughout its history, with initial vintages going back to 1926 - all bottled at full cask strength.
A very small release of 1961 vintage from Glenfiddich, with an outturn of just 56 bottles, packaged in a solid but elegant wooden box. Cask 9016, filled in the year that the farthing ceased to be legal tender in the UK, was selected by Glenfiddich Malt Master Brian Kinsman after 47 years of maturation.
Another amazing whisky from Bowmore distilled in 1964. Considered by many to be the best of the bunch (even beating the Black, Gold and White trilogy), this is elegant, but with an incredible complexity - parma violets, tropical fruit and of course a peaty undertone are all in attendance here. Just 72 bottles of this ever existed.
Ardbeg Double Barrel is something pretty special. This leather case from Purdey and Sons contains an Omas fountain pen, a leather-bound notebook for you to record your tasting notes and eight sterling silver cups. Oh, and two single cask Ardbegs from 1974 - both bottled at cask strength and packaged in hand-blown bottles with sterling silver labels.
Just 250 of these sets are being released worldwide
Another stunning packaging job for this limited release of fifty-year-old Highland Park 1960, featuring a sterling silver abstract 'cage' around the bottle by Scottish artist Maeve Gillies and a natural-look wooden box. The official tasting notes suggest a sherry influence on this, with tobacco, raisins and cooked fruit.

A prestigious bottle of Macallan from the 1951 vintage. Released as part of their Fine & Rare series, this was bottled at an incredible 51 years of age with an impressive natural strength that was still up at over 50%.
A 1949 Macallan, aged for 52 years and released as part of their Fine & Rare range of vintage whiskies. Looks like they got this one in the nick of time - the natural bottling strength is listed as 41.1%.
Bottled around 2001, cask 609 of this 1948 vintage Macallan reached the grand old age of 53 years old before being deemed to be in the perfect condition for bottling as part of the distillery's Fine & Rare series.
