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 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.
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 official bottling of Bowmore at 21 years old. One of the few distilleries left with their own malting floor, which is sufficient for up to 40% of their needs. This has a nuttiness, with a touch of smoke and the salinity that is the distillery's trademark.
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.
The Rare Malts are a now-discontinued series of cask-strength releases designed by Diageo to showcase some of the hidden treasures in their portfolio. This particular dram is all the more precious for having come from a distillery closed in 1983 and now sadly demolished.
