A 1993 vintage Lagavulin bottled as a special release available from the distillery at the 2007 Islay Festival. A hit with almost all who have tasted it, averaging a score of 90/100 with the Malt Maniacs.
Lagavulin is probably Diageo's most highly-rated distillery, with its muscular peaty presence and flashes of honey sending most of the cognoscenti into a swoon.

A very limited release from Glenmorangie showcasing one of their successful experiments with different woods. This was matured in casks made from Chinkapin oak, native to North America, and was originally an exclusive bottling for World of Whiskies at Heathrow.
One of a series of extremely rare single cask, cask-strength releases from Glenmorangie. These releases were matured in a special type of new American oak and released in duty-free shops around the world.
