A half litre bottle of Ballantine's popular 21 year old presented in a blue ceramic decanter. The Ballantine's blends use up to fifty single malts and four grains, with Glenburgie and Miltonduff as the base malts.
Considered by many to be the hidden gem (and bargain) of Diageo's 2013 Special Releases is this 21 year old vintage Cardhu. A distillery that's not that well known on these shores (although is huge in spain), this is a delicate yet complex whisky, with balanced sweet fruit and dark woodiness.
A relatively young entry in the Douglas Laing Platinum range, with only 21 years on the clock for this whisky from Glenrothes. However, it has come from a sherry hogshead with an outturn of only 94 bottles - a rare dram which probably has a story behind it...
Matured in a mixture of sherry and bourbon casks. This range has been around for a few years now and seems to have weathered the storm it caused amongst the faithful when it was initially released. MAXIMUM ONE PER PERSON
A 21 year old Glen Grant from the acclaimed Director's Reserve series of bottlings, a series using whiskies normally reserved for the Directors' enjoyment only. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s and comes in the then common rectangular shaped bottle.
An old presentation of Glenfarclas 21 year old whisky. Presented in a beautiful square bottle with grooves in either side for easy gripping. We estimate that this was bottled sometime in the late 1970s.
A 1976 Edradour from independent bottlers Blackadder. This whisky was distilled a year after Pernod Ricard, the distillery's previous owners, had purchased it. Edradour today is a well visited distillery, both for their excellent whiskies and also due to the very picturesque nature of the buildings.
