Auchentoshan 1991  |  26 Year Old  |  Claxton’s 70cl / 54.1% | Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Spice and lingering sherry character at the end round out this delicious whisky.

Cambus 1988  |  29 Year Old  |  Sovereign 70cl / 45.6% | Single Grain Scotch Whisky

This Hunter Laing release of famed Cambus is a bottle of pure single grain glory. Dried fruit sweetness leads the charge on the nose, flowing smoothly onto the palate to meet light vanilla, a hint of oak and a touch of Christmas spice. Flavours lift even further toward the finish with more juicy fruit and a twang of fresh citrus.

Glenlivet 1981 | 36 Year Old | Sherry Finish | The Whisky Exchange Exclusive

Glenlivet 1981  |  36 Year Old  |  Sherry Finish  |  The Whisky Exchange Exclusive 70cl / 47.6% | Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Exclusive to The Whisky Exchange, this hand-picked, single cask 36 year-old is a colossus of long-aged Glenlivet complexity, having spent its final 6 years in a sherry butt. The nose is an alluring, aromatic maze of cocoa, dried fruit, pastry and subtle oak. It’s just as enchanting on the tongue, where fresh apple and cinder toffee battle spice for dominance of a tempered citrus and oak landscape. All is reconciled in a finish full of gentle liquorice and mild cinnamon, with more rich, dark fruit to walk us out.

Glen Keith 1996  |  21 Year Old  |  First Editions 70cl / 57.2% | Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

All but an orchard in a bottle, this special dram from Hunter Laing balances classic Glen Keith levity with a delightful depth of sweet fruit.

Port Charlotte 10 Year Old

Port Charlotte 10 Year Old 70cl / 50% | Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky | Distillery Bottling

Port Charlotte's long-awaited 10 year old, rich and smoky whisky made by the independently minded folks at Bruichladdich distillery on Islay. PC, as it's known to its friends, is heavily peated to 40ppm, putting it up with Islay's other heavy hitters. The resulting whisky is big and peaty with a maritime tang – the Bruichladdich team would claim that it's because their warehouses are so close to the sea, we're still undecided. In the end, the most important thing is the taste: it's rather good.
