Douglas Laing
A 28 year old whisky from cult closed distillery Port Ellen, bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their Platinum Selection series. Distilled in March of 1983, months before the distillery was mothballed, this is as young as Port Ellen gets - at 28 years old that isn't all that young and shows how long aging and sherry casks make for a impressive whiskies from this distillery.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing
A 1989 vintage whisky from, as of 2011, mothballed distillery Tamdhu, bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their Platinum Selection range.

Just in time for Christmas, we've got some very interesting stuff from one of Scotland's newest distilleries, Abhainn Dearg.  The tiny distillery is located on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis and is therefore Scotland's most westerly distillery.  Founded in 2008, Abhainn Dearg's spirit has just come of age and can now legally be called whisky having spent the requisite 3 years in casks.  We've also got some of their earlier 'work in progress' release aka Spirit of Lewis, an aged malt spirit under three years old.
