A single cask release from Lowland independent distillery Bladnoch, distilled in 2001 and aged for 11 years in sherry butt #281. This is even more different to regular Bladnoch by being lightly peated, for a touch of smoke with the sherry cask flavours.
An 11 year old bottling from Bladnoch, from the distillery which reopened in 2000. Aged in sherry cask 280, this would have come from one of the first batches produced and comes with the distillery's sheep label.
A 2002 vintage whisky from popular Distillers Edradour. This whisky was aged for just under 9 years in a hogshead, before being finished for a little over 18 monmths in a Marsala Cask. Bottled at cask strength at the age of 11 years.
A 2002 vintage Edradour, which was aged for over 8 and a half years in a hogshead before being transferred to an ex-Chateauneuf du Pape cask for 2 and a half years. Released as part of the distillery's on-going Straight From the Cask series of bottlings which use a variety of different wine casks to finish their whiskies.
A richly coloured Edradour, finished in a red wine cask as part of its 11 years of maturation. Distilled on 28th March 2002, matured in a hogshead until 28th February 2011 and then finished in a Barolo hoggie until bottling on 9th December 2013.
Longrow is the peaty whisky produced at Springbank distillery. This whisky has been aged for 6 years in refill bourbon barrels and then finished for 5 years in Australian Shiraz barrels, appropriately from Angove's Long Row winery in Australia.

More madness from Murray McDavid, starting with a 1995 vintage distillate from Bowmore. They first matured the spirit in ex-Bourbon before finishing the whisky in Viognier white wine casks from Guigal in Condrieu, for a total of 11 years in wood. They may also have spelled Viognier as Voignier on the label...
A 1994 vintage Longrow from independent bottlers (and Springbank distillery's subsidiary) Cadenhead's. This was distilled just two years after Springbank's on-site maltings reopened and was bottled at 11 years of age.
The second ever cask bottled by The Scotch Malt Whisky from Inverleven in the Lowlands. This was distilled in May 1979 and bottled 11 years later in June 1990. The distillery was situated within the Dumbarton Grain complex and closed for good in 1991.
The third cask bottled by The Scotch Malt Whisky from Auchentoshan in the Lowlands - the only Scottish distillery to triple distil every drop. This was distilled in January 1979 and bottled 11 years later in September 1990 presumably, judging by the colour, from a sherry cask.
