A small batch 1994 vintage Strathisla, bottled at full strength by owners Chivas Brothers for their Cask Strength Edition series, which are normally only available to buy at the distilleries themselves.
A 19 year old single cask whisky from Benrinnes bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask range. This was distilled in 1992, shortly after the distillery released their first official bottling, and bottled in 2011.
A 1992 vintage Tormore from independent bottlers Signatory as part of their Cask Strength Collection. Distilled on 7th April, it was matured in bourbon barrels 5683 and 5688 for 19 years before being bottled on 1st November 2011 at 52.8%.
Bottled at the end of 2012, this is a cask strength edition of the wonderful Port Askaig 19 year old, bursting with fabulously flinty, lemony, seashells-on-the-sea-shore flavours. Although the alcoholic strength has only gone up around 4%, the result is a very noticeable jump in flavour intensity. A truly elemental whisky, perfect for swigging from hipflasks during cold winter walks.
One of the last official bottlings of Glenglassaugh from former owners Edrington Group before the distillery changed hands, this 19yo was distilled in 1986, the year the distillery was mothballed, and appeared on our shelves in 2006.

A beautiful hogshead of Glengoyne 1990 bottled for The Whisky Exchange. Creamy melted vanilla ice-cream on thick crust baked apple pie. Glengoyne's lack of peat leads some to regard it as a worthy but dull whisky, but the truth is that the spirit made here is of remarkable quality, and when it gets into the right cask the results are magical.
