The single malt Scotch market continues to set stunning records at auctions across the globe. The supply of whisky is finite, and each bottle opened of any rare legend makes the next bottle that much more valuable. But a single malt’s value isn’t driven by its package or its provenance, but by the quality of the spirit in the bottle. Because of this, access to the means and modes of production are highly guarded. The Scots don’t just let anyone waltz in and start buying their best whisky. In fact, even after years of working in Scotland, we’ve only been able to scratch the surface of the complex brokers and blenders market that exists among Scotland’s 130+ distillers.

That’s what makes what the team at The Perfect Fifth have done so unique. This brand, the product of one young man’s vision to bottle a world-class array of single cask single malt, is proof positive that there remain astounding treasures hidden in Scotland’s cold damp cellars. It’s unclear if this small US-based bottler has personal ties to the industry or simply through persistence and good fortune was able to secure these unbelievable stocks, but there’s no question that The Perfect Fifth has managed to wrangle some of Scotland’s finest treasures.

Even a decade ago, we’d have had to call in all our good will to obtain such a series of rare casks. And while their prices are on par with similarly aged stocks bottled by the distillery themselves, the fact that they are sold as single barrels producing only a handful of bottles makes them significantly rarer than most distillery releases. This offer gives you something even more valuable than investment-grade whisky — it gives you legendary drinking-grade whisky. If a distillery bottling of Highland Park 30 Year is a new Ferrari, then these casks are the Koenigsegg or Pagani of single malts. They’ll never be a household name, but once you “get it,” you’ll never go back. It’s not an easy thing to find these days.
