Teeling's much anticipated 21 year old vintage reserve. Disitlled in 1991, this was matured in ex-bourbon casks and then married in Sauternes casks to finish. This first batch is believed to be the first ever Sauternes finished Irish Whiskey. The next releases will be at 25 and 30 years old and we're brimming with anticipation.
A 1991 vintage bottling of Springbank, aged in ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 12 years old. This was distilled the year before Springbnak reintroduced the on-site maltings, so would have been one of the last spirits to be distilled using imported barley.
With all your favourite Lagavulin characteristics, allied to an extra layer of sweetness, this is the most consistently excellent of the highly popular Distiller's Edition series. Winner of a Gold Medal and Best in Class at the IWSC, as well as the 'Best Peated Malt' in the Premium category at the Malt Maniacs Awards 2008.
A 1991 vintage Glen Moray. This was a marriage of casks matured in first-fill mountain oak casks from North America, both toasted and charred versions. This is sweeter than usual expressions from this distillery.
A very exciting single cask of Irish whiskey bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange. This first fill bourbon cask of single pot still whiskey from Ireland's largest distillery, Midleton, was distilled in November 1991 and bottled at cask strength in October 2012 a month shy of its 21st birthday. A profusion of tropical fruit flavours on a luxurious bed of creamy vanilla.
Please note this is limited to three bottles per customer.
The latest vintage of Macallan 18yo is from 1991. A benchmark: not just for Macallan, but for aged whisky everywhere. Sets the standard for sherried Speysides to aspire to. 'Best Malt in the World': The Macallan 18 years old, Whisky Magazine, June 2004
A 1991 vintage Glenmorangie produced as part of one of their successful experiments with interesting wood. This was matured in new oak from Missouri in the USA and has a bourbony tang in addition to the regular Glenmorangie character.
Another Lagavulin in the 2012 Special Releases line-up, joining the ever present 12 year old. This is a much more limited edition 21 year old bottling, matured in first fill ex-sherry European oak casks filled in 1991. This has had quite a bit of buzz about it and we expect it to live up to the pedigree.
