Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A vatting of seven first-fill bourbon casks of 2001 Benromach bottled at full strength towards the end of 2010. Kudos to owners G&M for bottling when the whisky's ready rather than waiting until it was a 10yo.

70cl / 54.6%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A cask strength vatting of two hogsheads of (atypically) heavily-peated single malt from Bunnahabhain made in 1997. There have been several bottlings of this stock from Signatory and they've all been very popular.

Single Grain Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A vintage single grain whisky from Diageo's Cameronbridge distillery, bottled by independent bottlers Signatory. There's a lot of excellent very old grain whisky around at the moment, but rather fewer younger expressions, so this is a very interesting treat.

(£23.54 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 55.4%
Single Grain Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A single refill butt of grain whisky from Diageo's closed grain distillery Cambus, which was one of the casualties of the 1993 rationalisation that also finished off Rosebank.

A Signatory bottling of vintage single grain whisky from Lothian Distiller's Edinburgh-based North British distillery. This should be very interesting, and it's certainly great value.

(£23.54 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 53.9%
Single Grain Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A very unusual bottling from Signatory: this is a cask strength single grain whisky from the North British distillery, matured full term in an American 'sherry' cask. Given the current vogue for old grain whisky, we think this will be popular.

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A young Laphroaig 2000 that's picked up a big colour from just seven years of ageing in a refill butt that we're willing to wager must have previously contained a rather dark sherry.

Finnish Single Malt Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A historic moment: TWE's first Finnish whisky! Teerenpeli distillery was founded in 2002 at the brewery of the same name in Lahti, Finland, and the name means 'flirtation' or 'dalliance'. We tried this 8yo at Whisky Live and were knocked out at how balanced and tasty it was - this is a very well-made whisky and is destined to be a huge hit.

A raft of new Adelphis this week, plus the new 18yo Greenore Irish single grain whiskey from Cooley - more treats to follow shortly.

70cl / 58.2%
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Adelphi
A young Ardmore 2003 that has picked up an amazing colour from 8 years in a first fill American oak barrel. Described as having smoked haddock on the nose and a sweet, smoky and peppery palate showing plenty of complexity for a young whisky.
£54.05 Inc. VAT
(£45.04 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 46.5%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Adelphi
Another of Adelphi's famed heavily-sherried Bunnahabhains - sadly we've only got a few of these, so it's MAXIMUM 2 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.

70cl / 55.4%
Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Adelphi
A 1995 Highland Park bottled by Adelphi without chill-filtration at its full natural strength. Described as sweet and rich on the nose with plenty of smoke on the palate.

(£58.71 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 55.7%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Adelphi
A cask strength mystery single malt that we couldn't resist opening up for a taste. It's definitely south coast Islay, big and peaty; and if you put a gun to our heads, we'd say that it seems a lot like a much-admired but seldom-independently-bottled distillery with connections to a snowy equine blend. MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.
£69.95 Inc. VAT
(£58.29 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 53.7%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Adelphi
A 1993 Macallan from European oak, bottled at full strength by Adelphi. Tobacco aromas, and patisserie notes of apple tart and sponge cake, with a little nuttiness and vanilla fudge on the finish.

Irish Single Grain Whiskey
Following the phenomenal success of Greenore 15yo, which was showered with trophies and gold medals wherever it went, here's the limited edition 18yo, which is the oldest single Irish grain Cooley have released - and it's already winning plaudits, scooping the 'Best Buy' recommendation in Whisky Magazine Issue 94.

Finally, one of the most anticipated releases of the year has arrived - Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt has been carefully replicated over the last two months in the lab of Whyte & Mackay's Richard Paterson, after being carefully extracted from the ice underneath Polar explorer Ernest Shackleton's hut in the Antarctic, where it had lain for over a hundred years.  

Three original bottles from the find were flown to Scotland in W&M owner Vijay Mallya's private jet, where samples were carefully extracted with a syringe for 'The Nose' to recreate.  The original bottles have now been flown back to new Zealand en route to being returned to their original resting palce in the ice.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Gordon & Macphail
A youthful Conniosseurs Choice vintage bottling of the little-seen Balmenach, a blend-fodder Speyside distillery whose owners Inver House have yet to release an official bottling despite buying the distillery in 1997 and bringing it out of mothballs the following year. Hopefully that will be rectified soon.
£32.95 Inc. VAT
(£27.46 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 46%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Gordon & Macphail
A fabulous colour on this Connoisseurs Choice Caperdonich 1972 from Gordon & Macphail, thanks to maturation in first-fill sherry casks. This will fly off the shelves.

Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Gordon & Macphail
A 1973 Highland Park, bottled at over 35 years old by Gordon & Macphail as part of their Rare Old series. Not particualrly dark for a first fill sherry bottling - perhaps it was from Fino casks?
