A gift pack containing a bottle of Glenmorangie's 18 year old, two ball markers, a golden golf ball and two glasses. The whisky itself is matured for 15 years in American white oak casks, after which around 30% is transferred to Spanish Oloroso casks for the final three years.
A TWE exclusive bottling, this very special Glenlivet was released in late 2012 as part of the distillery's Single Cask Editions, which are named alphabetically. Minmore is the name of the site of the Glenlivet distillery and is manifested here by an 18 year old bourbon cask, bottled at its impressive strength of 57.9%.
A bottle of Yamazaki's stunning 18 year old presented in a beautiful bag designed by London-based leather designer Bill Amberg, a man who also happens to be passionate about Japanese culture and whisky. Just 200 bags were produced for the UK, the limited edition packaging reproducing the effect of the charring of sherry casks prior to maturation and commemorating the 90th anniversary of the distillery.
A 1983 vintage Mortlach from Edinburgh-based independent bottlers The Bottlers. We presume this is aged in a sherry cask, described on the label as a 'refill bodega American oak butt', unusual in itself as most sherry butts are made from European oak.
A benchmark: not just for Macallan, but for aged whisky everywhere. Sets the standard for sherried Speysides to aspire to. 'Best Malt in the World': The Macallan 18 years old, Whisky Magazine, June 2004
The latest vintage of Macallan 18yo is from 1991. A benchmark: not just for Macallan, but for aged whisky everywhere. Sets the standard for sherried Speysides to aspire to. 'Best Malt in the World': The Macallan 18 years old, Whisky Magazine, June 2004
This 1965 vintage whisky was distilled at Glencadam distillery. Specially selected by Gordon & Macphail, after 18 years of maturation, for their Connoisseurs Choice series. We can't get enough of these old-style brown labels.
A 1980 vintage whisky from Dallas Dhu, since closed and turned into a museum of distilling, from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Distilled in February of that year and matured for 18 years it has kept an incredibly high strength of 65.1%, which makes one wonder at what strength it went into the cask...
A richly coloured whisky from Glendullan, selected by the distillery manager and originally given as a present to the friends and employees of the distillery. This one went out into the world in November 1989 and only a few remain undrunk.
The 2006 release of 18 year old Macallan. The whisky was distilled in 1988 and earlier. This was part of the annual release which showed off the style of this classically sherried Speyside malt superbly.
The 2004 release of Macallan 18 year old. Aged exclusively in sherry casks, this is blended from whiskies distilled in 1986 and in earlier years. The archetypal sherried Speyside, this has notes of spice and orange.
This was the 4th single cask that the Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottled from North Port (aka Brechin). The distillery closed in 1983, making bottlings highly sought after. This has notes of vanilla ice cream and tangerines.
