Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing
A Port Ellen from the early days of the Old Malt Cask series, this is one of a string of single cask PE's that really put Douglas Laing on the map as an independent bottler. The company had vast stocks of Port Ellen after buying it in bulk for their blends, and were able to capitalise on the success of the Rare Malts bottlings which had made the distillery hugely sought-after.

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The eighth release sold out in a few days and the first edition now commands about a grand if you can find it, so this is a bargain. Classic PE kippers 'n' slippers character, with plenty of grunt from the high alcohol.

Japanese Single Malt Whisky
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).

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
The eleventh Port Ellen in Diageo's Special Releases series was distilled in 1979 and bottled at 32 years old. We reckon it's the best official PE in many years - sadly our allocation was completely pre-booked before the stock arrived.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A truly classic sherried Macallan, this 1979 is regarded as the best of the highly-sought-after Gran Reserva series released in the 1990s to showcase the extreme end of sherried whisky from the distillery. Scoring 91 points on Serge Valentin's whiskyfun.com, this is one of the landmark Macallan releases of the last twenty years.
