Day 10 - What to get the drinker who has everything?


After yesterday’s Ardmore, one of the most interesting and affordable old peaters we’ve ever sold, we’re going the other direction. Here is a small cache of extremely rare and unique whisky for those who need something a little bit more unique for that special someone. This diverse cache of whiskies would impress even the most jaded collector, but what’s even more appealing for the true connoisseur is the tome sitting behind these bottles. This beautiful manuscript is the most in depth and complete encyclopedia regarding collecting Scotch Whisky in existence. It’s full illustrated and filled with gorgeous pictures of the world’s most prized bottles as well as techniques for identifying certain bottles and avoiding fakes. We’re extremely lucky to have two of the only copies for sale in North America and honestly if you don’t buy them I’m going to buy a second. Of course like the whiskies featured here they’re not cheap, but what’s the point in working so hard, but to use your hard earned money to buy something special for the people you love. Nothing is more special than this short list of Old & Rare offerings:
