With independent whiskey distilleries popping up all over the world, bringing twists to this exclusive world and offering handcrafted quality products, whiskey enthusiasts are spoilt for options in the current market. However, some things are considered classics for a reason!
CEO Today has gathered some of the truly unique whiskeys available to buy now, which will please even the most refined of palates.
The Macallan 52-Year-Old (2018 Release)
This ultra-rare single malt Scotch whisky, made in only 250 bottles, is more precious than ambrosia. Drawn from a first-fill European oak sherry seasoned cask, it has been ageing for over half a decade. One not to be missed by the intrepid whisky lover!
Balvenie 56-Year-Old 1962
With a limited run of 90 bottles only, this premium whisky was made as part of The Balvenie DCS Compendium Chapter 5, a collection honouring David C. Stewart MBE – the long-time master blender and malt master for William Grant & Sons distillers.
Bowmore Black 31-Year-Old 1964 – Final Edition
Released in 1812 bottles only, this is the third and final batch of the three-part Oloroso cask 1964, bottled exactly 30 years ago and hugely respected by whisky enthusiasts from across the globe. Offering a truly unique blend of fruit, peat and power, this bottle belongs in every true connoisseur’s collection.
Port Ellen 40-Year-Old
For a bit of history from a distillery that is no longer open, get your hands on the Port Ellen 40-year-old. It is one of the oldest and rarest releases from the Port Ellen distillery. This whisky offers a blend of nine casks of original Port Ellen stock, in four American oak hogsheads and five European oak butts. There are only 1,380 bottles of this release available to the public!
Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch
Coming from a distillery built by Alexander Matheson back in 1839 and considered as one of the world’s most expensive whiskeys ($58,000 for a bottle), this is undoubtedly one of the most premium and exclusive whiskeys in the world. Only 12 bottles were released of it in 1942 in honour of Matheson, Dalmore Distillery’s Founder, so finding it could be extremely difficult.
Springbank 50-Year-Old 1919
Described as one of the rarest single malts ever distilled and once listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as one of the most expensive whiskies to ever be sold, this 50-year-old bottle is currently not available on The Whisky Exchange, but is definitely one to keep an eye out for – a remarkable museum piece of whisky history!
