Some new bottlings from Berry Brothers today - a tasty old Glenturret and three (?!) Littlemills, from 1988, 1990 and 1992.
70cl / 46%
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Berry Brothers & Rudd
A 35 year old bottling of Glenturret from legendary independent bottlers Berry Brothers & Rudd. Berry's have released a string of stunning Glenturrets over the last year and this is sure to be another.
£225.00 Inc. VAT
(£187.50 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 52.3%
Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Berry Bros & Rudd
A rare 1988 vintage Littlemill from independent bottlers Berry Brothers and Rudd. Littlemill was in fact mothballed from 1984 to 1989, so we presume this came from the small amount of test distillation they would have been doing at the time to keep the equipment in working order. The distillery closed for good in 1992 and bottlings are becoming harder to find.
£84.95 Inc. VAT
(£70.79 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 46%
Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Berry Bros & Rudd
A 1990 vintage Littlemill from independent bottlers Berry Brothers & Rudd. Reopened in 1989, the distillery closed for good in 1992, before being dismantled and then destroyed by fire a few years later.
£82.95 Inc. VAT
(£69.13 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 54.5%
Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Berry Bros & Rudd
A 1992 vintage Littlemill from independent bottlers Berry Brothers & Rudd. The distillery closed for good in this year, just a few years after having been reopened in 1989, so this will be one of the last distillates from the distillery and a real piece of history.

A companion bottling to Glen Garioch's virgin oak from Auchentoshan and the latest limited edition from Bowmore - a 1989 port wood matured whisky.

70cl / 46%
Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Famously the only whisky distillery in Scotland to triple distil every drop, Auchentoshan have been placing small batches of their spirit in North American virgin oak since the start of the millennium. This has a spicy note and a great complexity.
£65.45 Inc. VAT
(£54.54 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 50.8%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A 1989 vintage Bowmore which was aged entirely in port casks for 23 years and bottled in 2013. This was distilled in the year that Suntory first bought a stake in Morrison Bowmore distillers. This has notes of blood orange, spices and winter fruits.

A pair of interesting and very old whiskies from Benriach and sister distillery Glendronach - the 1966 Vestige and 1968 Recherché.
70cl / 44.1%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A bottle of the extremely rare (just 62 bottles were released) Benriach Vestige 1966. “Vestige” has been so named because it represents a moment in time, a small trace of something very special that, once lost, can never be replaced. This is truly a piece of the distillery’s history.

Please note, this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
£3,999.00 Inc. VAT
(£3,332.50 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 48.6%
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Glendronach 'Recherché' is a 44 year old single cask release. Bottled from the oldest whisky in the distillery's warehouses at the time of release, this has spent its whole life in an oloroso sherry butt. The name 'recherché' was chosen as it means carefully sought out. Just 632 bottles were released worldwide.
£2,600.00 Inc. VAT
(£2,166.67 Ex. VAT)
August '13 19th Monday
The latest release from Glen Garioch - a whisky entirely matured in virgin American oak casks, hence its name. Spicy and intense.
70cl / 48%
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Released in 2013, this is the first ever release of a Glen Garioch whisky aged entirely in virgin North American oak. Scotch whisky has a history of using used barrels, be it sherry, bourbon or something else, as it is widely felt that new wood would overpower the delicate flavours. This is rich with notes of treacle, chocolate and orange.

70cl / 43%
Australian Single Malt Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A French oak, ex-sherry cask matured Australian whisky, distilled and matured at the Old Hobart distillery in Tasmania. More approachable than the cask strength edition, this is still packed full of sherry fruit and spice.

(£116.67 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 43%
Australian Single Malt Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Old Hobart's flagship whisky, aged in 100 litre French oak, ex-port quarter casks. The small casks help the spirit develop more intense flavours, showing off the quality of both the new make and the French oak.

The 2013 edition of Highland Park's excellent 30 year old whisky - bottled at 45.7%.
70cl / 45.7%
Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Released at the beginning of 2013, this 30 year old is the second oldest core expression in the Highland Park range. Bottled at a lower strength than previous editions, it exudes notes of aromatic spices, dark chocolate orange and the characteristic fudge sweetness that one has come to expect from older Highland Park bottlings.
£385.00 Inc. VAT
(£320.83 Ex. VAT)
August '13 9th Friday

A pair of whiskeys that we've been waiting on since last year's Whisky Show - the rye-heavy beast that is Ryemageddon and the hopped Rasputin.

75cl / 43%
Corsair Rasputin Malt comes from the artisan distillers based in Kentucky and Tennessee. This hopped whiskey is made by distilling Imperial stout and passing it through hops to add spicy and floral notes to the chocolate flavour of the stout. A complex hopped whiskey.
£55.45 Inc. VAT
(£46.21 Ex. VAT)
75cl / 46%
Kentucky and Tennessee based Corsair's artisanal whiskies have been causing something of a stir. Made from 80% Rye, with the balance being a mix of chocolate malt, malted rye and red wheat, this is a rather chocolatey whiskey.
£45.45 Inc. VAT
(£37.88 Ex. VAT)
August '13 5th Monday
A few bottles from Berry Brothers that have just come in - including a pair of rather different looking Bunnahabhains.
70cl / 49.8%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Berry Bros & Rudd
A heavily sherried 1988 Bunnahabhain from independent bottlers Berry Brothers & Rudd. Bottled at 24 years old and at cask strength of 49.8% as part of the Berry's Own Selection range. Bunnahabhains of this style are much sought after by sherry-heads - it's a big and heavy dram.
£96.45 Inc. VAT
(£80.38 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 44%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Berry Brothers & Rudd
A peated 1989 Bunnahabhain from independent bottlers Berry Brothers & Rudd. The peated spirit is sometimes referred to as Margadale after the river that exists as the distillery's water source. This was bottled after 23 years of maturation and the angels must have been thirsty as it is at a cask strength of just 44%.
£92.45 Inc. VAT
(£77.04 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 58.6%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Berry Bros & Rudd
Another stunning release from independent bottlers Berry Brothers & Rudd. This is a 20 year old Longmorn from 1992, bottled at cask strength of 58.6%
£68.25 Inc. VAT
(£56.88 Ex. VAT)
August '13 2nd Friday
An interesting mix of whiskies today - Glenfarclas's long spoken of 25 year old Quarter Cask, Glen Grant's 5 decades (celebrating master distiller Dennis Malcolm's 50 years with the company), The English Whisky Company's Chapter 12 and some more Hakushu Heavily Peated.
70cl / 42.4%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Glenfarclas combined ten of their last remaining quarter casks, the youngest of which was 25 years old, to produce this bottling. The whisky has spent all of its life in quarter casks and therefore gives greater wood contact and thus even more complexity and richness than the core 25 year old bottling.
£275.00 Inc. VAT
(£229.17 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 46%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A limited edition Glen Grant specially blended by Master Distiller Dennis Malcolm to celebrate his five decades with the distillery since he began as an apprentice cooper in the early 1960s. A marriage of a selection of Dennis's favourite casks from the past half century, this is a fruity, rich and complex expression.
£150.00 Inc. VAT
(£125.00 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 46%
English Single Malt Whisky
Distillery Bottling
St George's Distillery give each of their styles of whisky a chapter number, relating to the order in which they were first released. Chapter 12 consists of unpeated whisky matured in Pedro Ximenez casks. Another tasty release from this young distillery.
£51.35 Inc. VAT
(£42.79 Ex. VAT)
70cl / 48%
Japanese Single Malt Whisky
When you get a category as hot as Japanese whisky, a distillate as good as Hakushu's AND it's peated as well, you know you've got a hit on your hands, and this doesn't disappoint. Sukhinder has been raving about this one.

A pair of interesting bottles today - Kilchoman's latest edition of 100% Islay, their whisky made entirely from barley grown, malted, distilled and matured on their farm; and a special Caged edition of Monkey Shoulder, a mild mannered malt not entirely suited to breaking out of jail.
