A Signatory release of single cask 1985 vintage whisky from Linkwood, bottled for their Cask Strength Collection. Distilled on October 22nd, matured in a hogshead for 26 years and bottled on January 10th 2012.
A promising golden colour on this plain hogshead from Cragganmore, one of Diageo's most well-respected distilleries. Distilled in 1985 and bottled by Signatory for their Cask Strength Collection in December 2012.
A peated 1985 single cask Benriach. This whisky has undergone a full 26 years of maturation including finishing in a Pedro Ximenez Sherry Cask. The fact that it this is bottled at cask strength just means that there really isn't much of this fantastic whisky available.
The first Knockando in Diageo's special releases line-up and a bit of a swerve from normal. Firstly, there's no vintage on the bottle, unlike their other expressions, and secondly it's matured solely in first fill sherry casks, for a heavily rich flavour.
The first distillery bottling of Benrinnes in aeons, this is a heavily-sherried number, very old-school with dark fruit, crème brulée, a hint of beef gravy and a touch of gun-metal. Released in 2009 as part of Diageo's Special Releases, this is far and away the best official bottling from this distillery.
The third edition in Bruichladdich's DNA series, examining the component parts that make the distillery's whiskies tick. This one marries together some of their best casks of the 1980s - their final batch of sherry butts. Bottled at cask strength and limited to only 1665 bottles, this is one for all fans and collectors of Bruichladdich.
The 4th edition in Bruichladdich's DNA series, digging into the heart and soul of the distillery's character. This time it's from 1985 and has been aged for 12 years before cask selection and bottling.
