Caol Ila ’06

10 yr

Caol Ila Distillery is situated near Port Askaig on the North East coast of the Isle of Islay. It is the largest distillery on the Island (which currently boasts 8 distilleries) and is also notable for having no warehouses for its whisky which is taken off the Island for maturation. The whisky is smoky as you would expect with a distinctly toasted malt flavour.

Cask type: Refill Hogshead


42 yr

Invergordon Distillery is a large grain distillery complex situated in the North of Scotland. The grain whisky is entirely meant to satisfy the needs of large blends but occasionally the odd cask gets overlooked. In this case, the cask was overlooked for four decades resulting in this dark, sweet and rich whisky demonstrating what over forty years can do to a whisky.

Cask type: Refill American barrel


8 yr

Hard to pronounce and hard to find, Glentauchers (try Glen-TOCK-ers) whisky is almost entirely used for blending being owned by one of the world’s largest distilling groups. This whisky has spent eight years in European oak previously used for the maturation of Sherry from Jerez, Spain. Expect rich fruitcake and chocolate in this mighty dram.

Cask type: First Fill Ex-Sherry Butt

Laphroaig ’05

11 yr

Laphroaig Distillery is world famous for making a particular style of Island whisky. Some despise its rich and very fragrant aroma whilst many other seek exactly those same pungent riches each bottle holds. This whisky is taken from a single cask so offers a quite unique glimpse of this extraordinary distillery.

Cask type: First Fill Ex-Sherry Hogshead

Linkwood ’97

18 yr

Linkwood Distillery, based in the town of Elgin in the North East of Scotland, is quite a hard whisky to find. Nearly all of its output is destined for the big blending houses. Whilst this is understandable, as Linkwood Distillery makes a great spirit, it is a shame that more of its aged malt does not find its way into a bottle on its own. This cask demonstrates how great this whisky can be.

Cask type: First Fill Ex-Sherry Hogshead

Irish ’03

12 yr

There was a time, not so long ago, when there were just three distilleries on the Emerald Island of Ireland. Recent times has seen a mini-explosion to that number but this was distilled when Irish Whiskey had yet to really find its voice in the market. The whiskey is a testament to why demand has surged.

Stirk’s Gin

David Stirk, the man behind our beloved The Exclusive Malts line, is ready to show the world what his Gin is all about: made using the finest botanicals, including juniper and coriander, natural color and full flavor, expect hints of toffee and caramel, touches of vanilla and a sweet oak finish from this grown-up Gin.  It has been created, barrel-finished and bottled with care and attention ensuring that as much flavour is left in as possible. It has not been filtered and may go slightly hazy, but worry not: this a good sign! 

Islay ’07

8 yr

This whisky is made at an undisclosed distillery on the Isle of Islay. This Island, home to 8 distilleries, is synonymous with making a smoky and sea-salty style of whisky.

Tomintoul ’06

10 yr

Tomintoul Distillery recently celebrated its 50th birthday having been established in 1964. Its rich and fruity style was instantly a hit with blenders and now with malt whisky drinkers. This whisky was matured in a cask that previously held Sherry and then whisky thus it demonstrates perfectly the distilleries charms.

Port Dundas ’91

25 yr

Based just North of the City of Glasgow, Port Dundas Distillery had a long and chequered history (it burned down twice and was bombed once). At its prime the distillery was capable of making 39 million litres of spirit a year but was closed in 2009 due to a surplus in production of grain whisky. The whisky is now highly sought after as when aged properly is quite delicious.

Cask type: Refill Hogshead

Girvan ’88

27 yr

The Girvan Distillery was completed in 1963 and was built by the William Grant & Sons Company to satisfy their demand for grain whisky for their many blends.
At the time of completion it was the largest distillery in Europe and also makes a very well known gin. This ‘Coffey Still’ distillate was laid down in 1988 and has been bottled as naturally as possible to retain all of the soft American oak flavours.
