An elegant old Speyside bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange by German independent The Whisky Agency. While we can't explicitly tell you which family-owned distillery this is from, it's one of our favourites, and they're well known for producing great whisky from sherry butts. We'll leave the guessing up to you.
A very limited run of gorgeous long-aged Irish whiskey, bottled exclusively for us by The Whisky Agency. The late 80s and early 90s were a sweet spot for whisky from this anonymous Irish distillery, with a huge amount of fruity flavour in every bottling. This one zeroes in on mangoes, and is one of the juiciest drams we've ever tried. A must taste for fans of the style.

The 2018 edition of Compass Box's perennially-limited Flaming Heart is bigger, bolder and tastier than ever. Full of thick, fiery, smoky flavours and overlaid with oaky depth and a herbaceous, spicy freshness born of a substantial Caol Ila component, this is far from a one-trick pony. A warm, multidimensional and luxurious dram.
