Rigorously selected from rare, precious stocks by a team of experts, our Special Releases deliver a unique and memorable experience to those lucky enough to drink them.
The 2015 Special Releases certainly meet this criteria. Highly anticipated around the world by enthusiasts and collectors, the nine range from £80 for the LAGAVULIN™ 12 Year Old, to £2,400 for the PORT ELLEN™ 32 Year Old.
This year is a special one, we have a real variety of whiskies from distilleries which have been un-earthed by our talented Master Blenders such as THE CALLY™ – a Single Grain Scotch whisky from Caledonian, a distillery in Edinburgh which closed in 1988, and is the oldest Caledonian ever released. The liquid is described as: ’clean, fresh and fruity with an oaky character.’ Also part of the collection is the DALWHINNIE™ 25 year old, which is described as a: ‘A creamy, aromatic and crisply focused mature Dalwhinnie.’
The 2015 Special Releases collection includes the 15th appearance of Port Ellen in this range - one of the most sought after Single Malts in the world. Following the success of its first release last year, Dr Jim Beveridge, has created another richly mature and complex CLYNELISH SELECT RESERVE™ using individually selected casks from some of the distillery’s oldest reserves.
Some whiskies in the range are from distilleries that closed nearly 30 years ago, such as Brora and Port Ellen – making each bottling a limited edition and a taste of history.
