A sumptuous (natural) colour on this Glencadam 1977, bottled from a single sherry cask by Douglas Laing for their rarely-less-than-pretty-amazing Platinum Selection. Sweet initially, with plenty of wood as you'd expect and some pleasant savoury notes and burnt toast flavours.
Very few expressions of Glen Elgin have been bottled, so this is a rare treat. Released in 2003, this is a delicious honeyed, fruity dram from an often overlooked distillery that has long been rated 'First Class' by blenders lists.
The first official bottling of Glenugie since a near-impossible-to-find 5yo Grant McDonald bottling from about twenty years ago, this 1977 was bottled in 2010, twenty-seven years after the distillery closed its doors for the last time in 1983. Bottled at its impressive cask strength of 55% abv.
Distilled in 1978, this Brora 32 year old is the oldest yet released by Diageo, and was introduced as part of the Special Releases for 2011. A marvellously complex nose with an intricate, medium-peated palate.
Please note this is limited to one bottle per customer.
The 7th cask that The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottled from Glenugie. This was bottled in 1997, fourterrn years after the distillery closed. Add this to the fact that no official bottlings were ever released, this is a much sought after and hard to find single malt.
A 1967 vintage whisky from Springbank distillery, specially selected by Cadenhead's for their Chairmans Stock series and bottled at its natural cask strength of 46.8% after 32 years in a sherry hogshead - this should be absolutely fantastic.
