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 »
A 1968 vintage Bowmore, bottled at 25 years old. A highly regarded bottling that was awarded 92 points by the Malt Maniacs, with Serge Valentin awarding it 91 points, noting it was full of tropical fruit.
Another supremely contemplative malt that demands time and concentration. This bottling is from bourbon casks that were re-racked into Oloroso sherry casks for the final stages of maturation. One of the most difficult-to-find Glenmorangies.
One of the most collectable ever Macallans, bottled in 1996 for the 35th anniversary of the famous satirical magazine Private Eye (still essential reading). The vatting produced 5000 bottles and included one cask from 1961. This special edition is also unique in that it features a superb screenprinted label by the legendary gonzo illustrator Ralph Steadman.
This 'Green Springbank' is legendary in collectors circles, not only for its curious colour, presumably the result of a full-term maturation in a rum cask, but also for its incredible flavours. Serge Valentin rated this bottling at 93 points on whiskyfun.
This is an official bottling of Springbank from the 1965 vintage. Released as part of the much sought after and acclaimed 'Local Barley' series. The label carries a beautiful illustration of a farm and surrounding fields.
A 1965 vintage Springbank. This carries the relatively common black label with white lower band which was used at the time. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s, a decade when the distillery was closed for production.
A 1966 vintage official bottling of Springbank. This was distilled a few years after the distillery's own maltings closed and barely began to be imported from elsewhere. Springbank bottlings from this era are highly sought after.
Another legendary bottling in the always-impressive Prestonfield, this 20 year old Springbank 1967 received 93-94 points from Malt Maniac Serge Valentin on Whiskyfun and despite being from a multi-cask batch is now extremely difficult to find, having been bottled in the late 1980s.
