This is a bottling that many fans of this underrated distillery still have a soft spot for - the unpretentious old-style Scapa 12yo: an easygoing dram, delightfully honeyed and malty. Replaced by the short-lived, unloved 14yo shortly before owners Allied sold up to Pernod Ricard.
A special bottling for the Friends of the Classic Malts, this is a 12 year-old bottled at the classic Talisker strength of 45.8% and is a definite step up in depth and class from the always-terrific 10 year-old. Spicy, peppery and complex - delicious.
An old bottling of Glengoyne 12 year old, famed for their unpeated single malt. Glengoyne is always very pure in style, allowing their high-quality, easy-drinking whisky to shine in its natural state. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1980s.
Lagavulin 12yo is always one of the most anticipated bottlings in Diageo's Special Releases. As before, this is a full strength bottling from American oak casks. Malt Maniacs Awards 2011: Best Natural Cask Award (Daily Drams)
An old bottle of Chivas Regal 12 year old blended whisky, one of the best selling brands in the world. The spiritual home of the blend is Strathisla distillery, one of the many malts contained within. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1970s.
