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...
A 21 year old Glen Grant from indepddent bottlers Gordon & Macphail. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1980s and so will be an example of the popular style of sherried Glen Grant distilled in the 1960s.
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.
A 1992 vintage Rosebank from independent bottlers Hunter Laing. This was distilled in February and aged for 21 years before being bottled in November 2013. One of only 122 bottles yielded, this is sure to be another highly sought after bottling from this sadly closed distillery.
A 1973 vintage Glen Grant from independent bottlers Wilson & Morgan, bottled in 1994 at 21 years of age. There have been a wave of fantastic 1970s vintage independently bottled Glen Grants and we expect this to be another one.
The third cask that The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottled from Royal Lochnagar, located on the Queen's Balmoral Estate in the Highlands. This was distilled in August 1972 and bottled 21 years later in August 1993.
A 1977 peated Ardmore bottled exclusively for VIPs & guests at the distillery's centenary celebrations in 1999. A little-known expression until Jim Murray gave it 91 points in the first ever Whisky Bible, with the comment 'It just gets better each time you taste it.'.
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 punchy yet well aged example of whisky from distillery 25, according to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society's numbering scheme. This was distilled at closed Lowlander Rosebank in April 1981 and was bottled 21 years later in August 2002.
