A 1982 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottlers Wilson & Morgan. This was aged in sherry butt 2031 for 30 years old prior to bottling. Distilled the year before the distillery sadly closed for good.
A very special old Ardbeg 10yo, unusually bottled in clear glass in the 1980s by former owners Hiram Walker. A whopping 95 points from Whiskyfun's Serge Valentin only enhanced this release's legendary status.
Please note this is limited to two bottles per customer.
The Bruichladdich Legacy series is a series of 6 bottles which were released annually from 2002 until 2007. All these whiskies are from incredibly old casks, and in some cases a marriage of several casks. This first release is a stunning 1966 vintage whisky bottled in 2002, also celebrating the Queen's golden jubilee.
A 1970 vintage Port Ellen, bottled in the late 1980s at 17 years old by Gordon & Macphail for their Connoisseurs Choice range. G&M had some fantastic casks of Port Ellen in the late 80s and we suspect this will be excellent.
One of the rarest bottlings from this closed cult distillery, bottlings of which are relatively rare themselves. Just 67 bottles were yielded from the single ex-sherry butt. This was distilled in September 1982, aged for 31 years and bottled at cask strength in October 2013.
Please note this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
The 2001 bottling for The Ardbeg Committee, Ardbeg's fan club. This one is part of a limited release matured for at least 21 years at the distillery, the youngest spirit being distilled just before its early 80s closure.
A rare commemorative bottling of Bowmore released to commemorate the 2003 fly fishing championships on Islay. Only a small number of bottles, with their wooden display case, were produced and this is sought after by collectors.
