The 13th cask that The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottled from Bruichladdich. Mid-1990s SMWS bottlings feature the old label, without the tasting notes that we know today and are hard to find nowadays. SMWS describe this bottling as "creamy and peppered"
A 1985 vintage Laphroaig released by Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask range. This bottling was chosen for the 'Directors Laudable Selection'. Distilled in February, it was aged for 15 years until 303 bottles were yielded in June 2000.
A 1978 vintage whisky from closed Glen Albyn, formerly situated along side the canal in Inverness and unfortunately now replaced by a closed branch of B&Q. This was distilled in March of that year and bottled 15 years later in August 1993 by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
A 1968 vintage Speyburn from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. This was distilled in the year the distillery's own maltings closed, meaning it either contains some of the last spirit to use the distillery's own malt, some of the first not to, or a mixture of both.
A 15 year old Lagavulin bottled for The Syndicate. This is a group of gentlemen who select casks that they like from around Scotland and have them bottled by their friends at Bruichladdich. The bottlings are well respected and widely considered to be of very high quality.
A 1969 vintage Teaninich bottled by Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice series. This was distilled the year before a new extension was built to the distillery with six new stills added.
An old bottling of Glenfarclas 18 year old. We estimate this was bottled in the 1970s, a decade which saw a great deal of change at the distillery. The on-site floor maltings were decommissioned, a visitors centre was opened and the number of stills were increased from four to six.
