A 1979 vintage Japanese single malt whisky from Suntory's Yamazaki distillery. Launched in travel retail in 2008, this has been bottled at full strength at 29 years old after full-term maturation in a Japanese Mizunara oak cask (very unusual as these casks impart a very strong flavour and usually leak a lot).

A spicy rye spirit from the folks behind the Redemption whiskies, this is a little different from most American whiskey - it's not chill-filtered. As such, it's kept more of the fatty acids that cloud whisky giving it a more interesting mouthfeel, more flavour and a light haze.

Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
A short-lived edition of Maker's Mark. Released with the ABV reduced from the usual 45% in an attempt to avoid stock shortage issues, it invoked an outcry and Beam Inc reversed their decision within a week. A few of these rare bottles got into stores and we've managed to acquire a few.
