A 1969 vintage Mortlach from Italian independent bottlers Intertrade. This was distilled a year after the distillery's on-site maltings closed and can be expected to be an example of classic 1960s sherried Speyside whisky.
A 1983 vintage Port Ellen bottled by The Cooper's Choice in 1999 at 16 years of age. This bottle was intended for VaMa Distribuzione based in Bergamo in Italy. This was produced the very year the distillery closed, with bottlings now highly sought after.
Bottled at 50% for a whisky retailer at some stage around the turn of the millennium, this rare Port Ellen was selected by Burn Stewart distillers and has no declared vintage but was bottled at 16 years of age.
A rare 1970s Cadenhead's bottling of this now-defunct Speysider. It's great how the fonts on these labels are such a good guide to the tastes of the times - check out the Caperdonich 1965 or the Macallan 1963 if you don't believe us.
A 16 year old Aultmore bottled to celebrate the distillery's 100th anniversary. It's a rare limited edition release and comes in at an eye-watering 63% abv. From the colour, it's probably safe to assume this was from a sherry cask.
A lovely old bottle of the ridiculously rare Kinclaith, this is from the 1966 vintage and was bottled in the early 1980s at 16 years old for the Connoisseurs Choice series by Gordon & Macphail, who have labelled it as a Highland malt despite the fact that Kinclaith was made in Glasgow at the Strathclyde complex.
An old Connoisseurs Choice bottling of the ludicrouslyrare Kinclaith. Distilled in 1966, this is aged for 16 years before being bottled, labelled as a Highland malt despite the fact that Kinclaith was made in Glasgow at the Strathclyde complex.
