A well aged 22 year old edition of whisky from Knockdhu (aka anCnoc), bottled at 46% with no colouring or chill filtration. It's a mix of American ex-bourbon casks and some Spanish ex-oloroso butts, adding a bit of leathery smokiness to anCnoc's traditionally silky style.

A 22 year old Highland Park from Signatory, matured in a wine treated butt - their term for a butt that hasn't necessarily been used to age sherry/wine in a traditional manner. It was distilled on 3rd December 1990 and bottled at cask strength on 5th April 2013.
One of a series of 6 special bottlings to mark the 15th anniversary of the Old Malt Cask brand. Presented in a wooden box with the original style label, this 22 year old Glen Scotia was distilled in May 1991 and bottled in November 2013 from ex-bourbon cask 13609. The distillery's official range only goes up to 21 years of age, so this is a rare opportunity to try something older.
A 1975 vintage Balblair independently bottled by Direct Wines (owners of Laithwaites) as part of their First Cask series. This was distilled just a few years after production at Balblair was increased by the addition of a third still.
