Some unusual single cask bottlings from Mackillop's Choice for starters this week, coming from closed or rarely-independently-bottled distilleries.  We also have the revamped Glencadam 15yo and the new 10yo (both of which are now at 46%); and a clutch of tasty-looking treats from our friends at Douglas Laing.  We particularly like the look of the Mortlach.

Meanwhile, over on the TWE Blog, Tim F's been getting his tastebuds around the new Ardbeg Supernova.  Check it out and see what you think.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The new Glencadam 10yo, released at the end of 2008 by (relatively) new owners Angus Dundee. This is styled as 'The Rather Delicate Highland Malt'. Unchilfiltered, with no colouring and bottled at 46% - this is what we like to see.
£32.45 Inc. VAT
(£27.04 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 46%
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Glencadam 15 has gone from strength to strength since a packaging facelift in 2009, at which time the strength was upped to 46% by owners Angus Dundee, who took over the distillery from Allied in 2003. An undersung distillery that is now starting to stretch its wings with some very good value for money whiskies.
£45.25 Inc. VAT
(£37.71 Ex. VAT)

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing
A single refill barrel of Glen Keith 1990, bottled by Douglas Laing for their Old Malt Cask range.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing
Another of Douglas Laing's splendid (and very old) sherried malts from 'Probably Speyside's Finest Distillery'. Last year's 1966 vintage sold out in a week, so don't be shy if you want one.

75cl / 70.9%
Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Yet another brilliant new Stagg. A full-on cask-strength bourbon with hitherto-unknown levels of intensity and complexity. Long known as Jim Murray's favourite bourbon, George T. Stagg's cult reputation is already assured.
£175.00 Inc. VAT
(£145.83 Ex. VAT)
75cl / 50%
Straight Rye Whiskey
A new limited release of long aged Rittenhouse Rye whisky - in this case a full 23 years old. Massive oak presence and full spices, this boasts a staggering 96 pts in Jim Murray's 2009 Bible.

75cl / 63.75%
Straight Rye Whisky
The third release of Thomas Handy, the full-on cask strength rye from Buffalo Trace. Huge spicy rye character as ever, this followed in the immensely successful footsteps of its predecessors, winning 'WORLD'S BEST AMERICAN WHISKEY' at the World Whiskies Awards 2009.
£125.00 Inc. VAT
(£104.17 Ex. VAT)
75cl / 62.65%
Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
This William Larue Weller is the third release of Buffalo Trace's spectacular high-wheat barrel-proof bourbon. Utterly delicious with a spicy kick, William Larue Weller is much-beloved of Jim Murray, who gave this particular example a whopping 93 points.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A special 15yo edition of Singleton of Dufftown originally bottled for the Duty Free market. Seems a particularly massive 1L bottle.

70cl / 46%
Indian Single Malt Whisky
The new Amrut Indian Single Malt has been beefed up to 46% and we can't wait to try it. The peated cask-strength stuff is excellent and this should be a significant improvement on the old 40% bottling.
£35.45 Inc. VAT
(£29.54 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 40%
Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Special Offer: £5 Off! (was £53.15)
The initially controversial 16yo official expression of Scapa is now winning people round with a jump in quality after a few wobbly years following the rapid transition from the much-loved 12yo via the short-lived 14yo. Orkney's less shouted about (but still lovely in its own way) malt whisky has found its feet.
