She’s a bonny lass and a whisky that will break a monk’s vow of silence. Linkwood is a great distillery that doesn’t release much of its own malt, so when these selections come along they’re exciting to offer you. We only have a few bottles left!

Looking for value in the world of single malt whisky? We immediately turn to Independent Bottlers, of which Signatory is among the top echelon. Proprietor Andrew Symington has embarked on an endless quest for über-rare, single malt Scotch. (It’s a quest we relate to.) Symington christened it “Signatory” because he wanted someone famous to sign their single cask bottlings. When their first cask (’68 Glenlivet) was ready, they still hadn’t found their signer and just moved forward. It turns out their offerings need no endorsement; they speak well enough for themselves. We had the opportunity to visit back in March, tour the distillery, and walk among the casks, hand-selecting those we wanted to taste. We seemed to be drawn to 20+ year Speyside distilleries. At least that is what we wound up finding that really blew our hair back. These selections are among the best we’ve come across this year and we trust you’ll give them a good home!
