16th December 2018
A well-aged Springbank selected and bottled by Doug McIvor and his team at Berry Bros. & Rudd. You don't see too many independently-bottled Springbanks around these days, with the distillery jealously guarding its old spirit – bottles like this show why. It seamlessly melds the classic earthy farmyard and softly smoky notes that typify Springbank with citrus, tropical fruit and gentle spice. An excellent dram.

Balcones introduced their 100% Rye Mashbill with Elbon Rye from Northwest Texas, and also includes crystal, chocolate and roasted rye. It is distilled in copper pot stills, which creates a full-bodied style of rye whiskey.

An incredible set of whiskies from veteran indie bottler Gordon & MacPhail. Over more than a century, G&M have built up a selection of some of the world's finest whiskies, and this Strathisla collection demonstrates how deep their warehouses go. Six bottles distilled at Strathisla across three decades, and aged for between 41 and 59 years: 1954 bottled in 2013, 1957 bottled in 2013, 1960 bottled in 2014, 1963 bottled in 2011, 1964 bottled in 2013 and 1972 bottled in 2013. An incredible selection that showcases how well Strathisla ages.
10th December 2018
A 26-year-old whisky from long-closed Littlemill, bottled by Hunter Laing for the Old Malt Cask range as part of the series' 20th anniversary. Littlemill closed in 1994, was dismantled in 1997 and the remainds burned down in 2004 – there are now houses on the site – making it one of the most lost distilleries in Scottish history. The whisky was distilled in March 1992 and bottled in August 2018.
9th December 2018 2018
A very special Christmas whisky from India's Paul John. A small-batch release that has been flying off the shelves, Paul John Christmas Edition 2018 adds a touch of peaty spirit to the distillery's buttery bourbon-matured whisky as well as a finish in oloroso-sherry casks to give a pinch of Christmas dried fruit and spice. The result is a well-balanced whisky that works excellently as a festive after-dinner dram.

This was distilled on 22 January 1985, matured for 33 years in a refill bourbon barrel and bottled on 6 July 2018. It's a classic Inverleven, building on it's fruity and grassy lowland style with layers of oak-influence, from even more fruit to spice, sweet toffee and vanilla and a touch of chocolate.
