May '10 25th Tuesday
A couple of interesting little gems this week, with the Dalmore Mackenzie (some of the profits from which are going to help the clan look after their family castle); and last year's Friends of the Classic Malts Clynelish 12yo matured in European Oak.  Please note that customers buying this Clynelish will be automatically signed up as members of Friends of the Classic Malts.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A very special Dalmore 1992, the Mackenzie has received a 6 year secondary maturation in port pipes after its initial 11 years in normal hogsheads and has been bottled at 46% - and a 'significant proportion' of the profits from this will be going to the Mackenzie clan to support their clan gathering - bravo, Dalmore!

May '10 14th Friday
A feast of goodies, with a mouthwatering splurge of new stuff from Signatory (most of it in their fancy new copper-tinged black tins), a tasty new Glenfiddich and a couple of lipsmacking grain whiskies from opposite ends of the globe. 
70cl / 40%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Released in Spring 2010, this Glenfiddich Rich Oak has spent 14 years in ex-bourbon casks in the traditional way, before two separate finishes of 12 weeks in new European oak and six weeks in new American oak before bottling. We like the sound of this.

Japanese Grain Whisky
Another of Nikka's single cask Coffey Grain whiskies, this is from a single cask of the 1995 vintage and has been bottled at full strength. We've really enjoyed these any time we've tried them - they're powerful, but very rewarding.

Signatory
A rare independent bottlnig of Glen Albyn from Signatory's Cask Strength Collection. This 29 year-old was distilled in 1981, just two years before the distillery was closed by owners DCL (now Diageo). Glen Albyn's buildings were sadly demolished in 1986 to make way for a shopping centre.

Signatory
A beautifully deep-coloured Glen Grant 1969 from Signatory, the rich bronze a direct result of forty years in a fresh Oloroso Sherry hogshead. This will be lapped up by the sherryheads.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A sister cask to the previous Signatory bottling of Glenugie 1977 which picked up a silver medal at the Malt Maniacs Awards in 2009. This has been finished in an Oloroso sherry butt for 90 months before bottling.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A Signatory bottling of the rarely-seen Imperial single malt from 1982. The distillery is currently mothballed, but was taken over by Chivas Bros in 2005. Chivas owners Pernod Ricard have been reviving distilleries of late, so there's hope yet for Imperial, which has had a troubled history, but has produced some very good, even great, malt whisky in the past.

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A pair of Laphroaig 2001 hogsheads, bottled for the Un-Chillfiltered collection by Signatory, who deserve credit for breaking the unwritten law that if it's under 10yo you shouldn't have an age statement.

Signatory
A sister cask to last year's Signatory bottling of Port Ellen 1983. We still don't know exactly what a Wine Treated Butt is, but we've tasted this little beauty and it's an epic PE.

Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Signatory
A coup for Signatory, this 34yo bourbon-matured Ayrshire 1975 is one of only a handful of bottlings of malt from the extinct Lowlander Ladyburn (not to be confused with the yet-to-exist distillery Ladybank).

May '10 7th Friday
The latest editions of the Managers' Choice are here - regular readers of this page will know that this is Diageo's first (and possibly last) series of single casks from each of their Scottish malt distilleries (not including Roseisle).  This is the third tranche of releases in the range, with likely highlights being Caol Ila and Glen Ord.  The final seven (including a much-vaunted Lagavulin 1993) are due later this year.
