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 official release of single cask Bowmore, distilled in August 1980 and bottled in July 2004 at cask strength. What's more, it comes with a rather nifty replica copper still decanter, embossed with a name plate featuring the bottle number.
An incredible collectors bottling from Macallan, the third in a range of royal bottlings, with only 1953 sets produced. This set celebrates Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953, 60 years before the release, and comprises two sherry cask matured whiskies - one from American oak, one from Spanish.
A 30 year old bottling of Bowmore presented in a beautiful ceramic bottle adorned with a sea dragon, which is also depicted on the accompanying box. Awarded 91 points by Serge Valentin of whiskyfun, this has notes of tropical fruit.
Bottled in 2012, this 1969 vintage Balblair was aged exclusively in ex-bourbon American oak casks. A release of 999 bottles, this was produced at a time when the distillery malted its own barley on site and the stills were coal-fired.
Glen Garioch is a distillery with a comparatively low profile, and quality has varied over its lifetime under a succession of different owners - but real aficionados will tell you that the older expressions are some of the best malts in Scotland. This is a whisky with fruit and floral notes, but also, crucially, some restrained peat.
A special and very rare bottling of The Glenlivet, bottled under the auspices of being for the company chairman. Distilled in 1963, bottled 21 years late and presented in wooden box with a script label.
An impressive and long awaited bottling from Old Pulteney - their oldest release yet, at a hefty 40 years old. It's presented in a hefty box with a book tracing the history of the distillery and the hand blown bottle, capped with a polished stone stopper, is decorated with silver waves, blown across the glass while the metal was molten.
Extraordinarily rare malt, even by Kinclaith's standards: just 64 (!) bottles were yielded when G&M bottled it in 1996 from what must have been, judging by the colour, an exceptional refill sherry hogshead. Kinclaith was founded in 1957 and closed in 1975. This incredibly scarce Lowlander has never been officially bottled as most of its output went into parent company Schenley International's Long John blend.
A rare bottling of whisky from Ben Wyvis from Signatory's extensive collection of weird and wonderful whisky. The distillery opened in 1965 and closed 12 years later, making this one of the rarest obtainable whiskies out there.
