Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Speciality Drinks Ltd
Bottled from a small batch of sherry hogsheads, this cask strength Glenrothes 1990 shows less overt sherried influence than much of the official output, while retaining a naturally sweet, clean distillery character.

Japanese Grain Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Another of the quite stunning grain whiskies produced by Nikka (probably at the Miyagikyo distillery). Pretty mind-blowing flavours and a startling depth and intensity, this is not a grain to be sneered at.

More goodies - not long now!  A high-quality offering from Douglas Laing this week, with a sought-after Signatory, a significant Speymalt, a Cellar Collection Glenlivet from the very top drawer, a new Penderyn and, of course, the return of Kilchoman and Campbeltown Loch 30yo.  Don't blink.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing
Bottled in August 2009, this is a single sherry cask of the rather rare and obscure Banff distillery, which closed in 1983 and was destroyed by a fire in 1991. Bottled by Douglas Laing for their Old & Rare Platinum Selection. We're guessing that this must be a refill cask as the sherry influence is very subtle in this delicious, elegant whisky.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing
A sumptuous (natural) colour on this Glencadam 1977, bottled from a single sherry cask by Douglas Laing for their rarely-less-than-pretty-amazing Platinum Selection. Sweet initially, with plenty of wood as you'd expect and some pleasant savoury notes and burnt toast flavours.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The 2009 release for Glenlivet's smash hit Cellar Collection series is from the 1973 vintage, and it's a belter. A massive hit at The Whisky Show 2009, especially at the extraordinary Cellar Collection masterclass where it was bested only by the legendary 1964 - 'nuff said.

The second release of Kilchoman is here, and we're pretty sure that this Autumn 2009 release will be just as popular as the Inaugural edition. This has been finished for three months in sherry butts after 3 years of bourbon barrel maturation. 1 bottle per customer.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A refill hogshead of Macallan 1985 bottled by Douglas Laing for the Old Malt Cask series. This is sweet and fruity, by all accounts.

Gordon & Macphail
A rather splendidly-coloured Macallan 1970, bottled from a first-fill sherry butt for Gordon & Macphail's Speymalt series at 46% rather than the usual 40-43%. At just shy of 39 years old, we expect this to be a belter. 1 per customer.

Douglas Laing
A truly delicious Port Ellen 1979 bottled by Douglas Laing for their Platinum Selection. Begins with light sweetness, then takes a phenolic turn, becoming more medicinal before the honey returns at the finish.

Signatory
A single hogshead of cask strength Port Ellen 1982 bottled by Signatory in August 2009. Having received 93 points from Serge Valentin's Whiskyfun we expect this to move sharpish. 1 per customer.

Welsh Single Malt Whisky
Distillery Bottling
Sukhinder's been raving about this Penderyn, which has been matured in bourbon wood before finishing in ex-Madeira casks. Bottled at a slightly lower strength than the standard Penderyn Madeira Wood for even easier drinkability.

Blended Scotch Whisky
We've found another parcel of stock of the famous Campbeltown Loch, the special blend made by Mitchell's - owners of Springbank. A significant proportion of this will be 30yo Springbank, yet despite the age this is a very approachable, elegant dram.

Signatory
A full-strength Port Ellen 1983 bottled from a single Wine Treated Butt by Signatory. A curious description of the cask - 'wine treated' implies that no wine was actually stored in the butt, and the label gives no indication as to the type of wine used. Paxarette, fermented must or something else? Very interesting.
