This was the 6th cask of Inchmurrin that The Scotch Malt Whicky Society bottled. They call this bottle "From the carpenter's shop" Inchmurrin is one of eight single malts produced at Loch Lomond distillery, this is made possible due to the adjustable stills, which can be altered to make different styles of whisky.
A follow-up to 2012's cognac cask, this is a well aged 31 year old whisky from Glenfarclas that has spent its life in a port cask. Expect seriously rich flavour and the distillery's trademark heavy spirit.
A 1982 vintage St Magdalene (aka Linlithgow) from independent bottlers Hart Brothers. This was distilled just a year before the distillery closed and bottlings from the distillery are much sought after.
A 1969 vintage Dallas Dhu from independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. The distillery closed in the cull of 1983 and is now run by Historic Scotland as a museum of distillation. Serge Valentin commented this had notes of malt and caramel when he tried in 2006.
A 1982 vintage Port Ellen from independent bottler Mackillop's. Distilled on May 5 in the year before the distillery with a cult following closed, this was aged for 31 years before being bottled in March 2014.
A 31 year old Bruichladdich distilled in 1970 and available, in general, only at the distillery. The Valinch whiskies are the single casks that they get visitors to hand bottle themselves when visiting and are thus rather rare. This is one of the ones from the early days of the distillery's millenial rebirth and is rather good.
A 1968 vintage bottling of Bowmore from independent bottlers Signatory. The distillery was purchased by Stanley P. Morrison (later to become Morrison Bowmore) in 1963 and there are many bottlings distilled in the latter part of the decade that are simply stunning.
A single cask distillery bottling from Auchentoshan. An very old example for their spirit, which is generally bottled much younger, released at 31 years old having aged in a hogshead since 28th March 1966.
A 1982 vintage Port Ellen released in 2013 by independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Old Particular series. The distillery closed in 1983 and has a cult following, making bottlings extremely sought after.
This is a 1967 vintage Glen Garioch from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This was distilled just a year before the distillery was decommissioned for five years. It then closed and reopened again (1995 to 1997) before this was bottled.
One of the rarest bottlings from this closed cult distillery, bottlings of which are relatively rare themselves. Just 67 bottles were yielded from the single ex-sherry butt. This was distilled in September 1982, aged for 31 years and bottled at cask strength in October 2013.
A 1967 vintage Springbank from independent bottlers Murray McDavid. This was aged in bourbon cask 1314 before being bottled in August 1998 at 31 years of age and received 90 or more points from 5 of the Malt Maniacs on their monitor.
