An extraordinary bottling of Glen Grant 1954 by Ian Macleod, owners of the glengoyne distillery. Just 100 bottles of this have been produced. A sensation at The Whisky Show 2009, where it was undoubtedly one of the finest whiskies at the whole show.
A truly legendary Port Ellen, bottled for the 25th anniversary of the Port Ellen Maltings in 1998. The recipient of an incredible 94 point score from Serge Valentin's whiskyfun.com, this is one of those rare Port Ellens that really lives up to the hype.
One of the now-legendary 1972 Broras bottled by Diageo as part of the Rare Malts series, that really kick-started the explosion of interest in this lost distillery. 1972 is regarded as a miracle year for Brora, and this version won Brora expert Serge Valentin's highest ever score, with 97 points. Enough said.
Another impressive bottling from the folks at Dalmore, matured for almost four decades in bourbon casks before a final 18 month stint in 30 year old Gonzalez Byass Matusalem sherry casks. It's named for the latin word for 'Constellation' and is certainly rather shiny. IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Whisky - Scotch
A special limited edition Glenfiddich, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the creation of the Republic of Singapore in 1965. This was bottled from the last remaining cask of 1965 vintage whisky and has suitably exclusive small outturn of only 180 bottles.
An incredible old bottling of Macallan from the 1930s. Aged for 22 years, bottled in Scotland and then imported into the US after the end of prohibition in 1933. Beautifully preserved and a great piece for a collector.
This incredibly rare 1969 vintage whisky was released exclusively to Italy in 1979 in celebration of Bowmore's 200th birthday. Matured for 10 years in a sherry cask and bottled at cask strength, this is limited to just 300 bottles.
A legendary Rinaldi bottling of 1957 vintage edition of Macallan's ever impressive 25 year old. Bottled in the mid-1983 this is an incredible example of old-school, well-aged, sherried spirit from Macallan.
The oldest distillery bottling of Laphroaig, aged for 40 years and bottled at a cask strength 42.4%. Rare and much praised by the whisky community, picking up an average rating of 90/100 from the Malt Maniacs.
An impressive new release from Auchentoshan, aging their triple distilled spirit for a whopping 44 years before bottling in 2011. A 1966 vintage whisky, great for both good drams and the wonders of English football.
A 1964 vintage Bowmore aged for 38 years in bourbon casks. 1964 seems to have been a good year at Bowmore, as there have been a large number of very high quality releases, not least the Trilogy series. With notes of pepper, mustard and a herbaceousness, Serge Valentin awarded it a fantastic rating of 92 points.
