An interesting batch of recent arrivals here, with a clutch of bottlings from the famous Whisky Fair held in Limburg, and a fascinating 15 yo Macallan - vintage 1947 - for the lottery-winners amongst you.  For those of us living in the real world, spirits can be lifted by the addition of an Old Pulteney bottled at full strength from a first fill sherry butt.

Something of an oddity, here - this Macallan 1947 was originally bottled for Italy in 1962 as a fifteen year-old, before being repackaged for the Fine and Rare range. This is likely to be more peaty than today's Macallan, as the distillery was forced to use peat in the kilns for a few years during and after WWII because of the scarcity and high price of coal.

An incredibly diverse selection of stuff to peruse here, with several new single cask Japanese belters, a couple of repackagings and new expressions of old favourites and some intriguing independent offerings.  Not to mention the Dumbarton, Jim Murray's 'Best Scotch Grain Whisky' in this year's Whisky Bible.

In other news, our splendid Elements of Islay range is continuing to pick up plaudits from the whisky establishment, with our Caol Ila being named as  Dave Broom's 'Top Pick' in this month's Wine & Spirit magazine.

An incredibly dark Tamdhu from a single sherry hogshead. Just 268 bottles were yielded after 18 years in the wood. Bottled at the Laing's preferred 50% strength, this should be an epic dram for the sherryheads.
