An old distillery bottling of Glenturret 12 year old. Most of the distillery's production is used as a base for the Famous Grouse blended whisky. The 12 year old was the distillery's standard release at the time of production, which we estimate was the 1980s, although it was replaced with a 10 year old in 2003.
An old bottling of Glendullan's 12 year old. This seems to be the age the owners believe is best for the distillery's spirit, as they have hardly released any official bottlings at any other age. We estimate this dates from the 1980s.
An old bottling of (Royal) Lochnagar 12 year old. The distillery lies near to Balmoral Castle and was reputedly a favourite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1970s.
Please note this bottle has a low fill level as shown in the photograph.
Benrinnes is another Diageo distillery of which very little is seen. Most of the malt produced at Benrinnes is used as blend fodder, so it's great to see a debut single cask bottling to sit alongside the Flora & Fauna version and 2009's acclaimed Special Release 23yo.
A very limited bottling of Yamazaki, specially produced for the 2012 Tokyo International Bar Show. Distilled in 1999 and bottled in 2012 from a single cask after 12 years hidden away in the company's Ohmi aging cellar.
A very rare distillery bottling of Glenallachie-Glenlivet whisky. This is one of the few single malt whiskies bottled by the distillery, as most of the whisky distilled ends up going into blended whisky. This single malt has been aged for 12 years and was bottled sometime in the 1980s.
