A 34 year old single cask Glenturret, bottled from cask number 1 in 2012 by Berry Brothers and Rudd. This is the second 34yo Glenturret they've released in a short timeframe and we are hoping this is just as fantastic as the previous bottling.
A 1977 vintage whisky from Inverleven, which closed in 1991 without having released any official bottlings. The indies have picked up on it, though, and this is one of a number of releases from Signatory, aged for 34 years in a bourbon cask and bottled at cask strength.
A 1977 vintage whisky from the increasingly well known distillery of Glenacadam, revitalised in the early 2000s by Angus Dundee. This has matured for 34 years in a sherry butt, as you can guess from it's impressive natural colour.
A 1977 vintage whisky from Benriach, part of their 2011 Limited Release range, the 8th that they've done. Distilled the year before the distiller was taken over by Seagrams and matured for 34 years, including a period of time finishing in a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask. The finish has added a nice bit of a sherry edge, but without overpowering the flavours from the initial maturation to give a great fruit and nut combination.
An interesting whisky from Benriach distillery. Distilled in 1977 and aged for 34 years, this whisky has been finished in a Rioja Wine barrel. The wine finish has given the whisky a subtle, grape-y (it's a word!) flavour. This is limited to ONE BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER
A 1977 vintage whisky from Benraich distillery. This has been aged for 34 years, including a term of finishing in a Sauternes Wine barrel. This period of finishing has imparted a number of fruity characteristics, most notably pears and apricots. This is limited to ONE BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER
The last of the legendary series of cask strength bottlings from individual casks selected by Highland Park's brand ambassador Gerry Tosh. This one is from a refill hogshead and has a relatively low natural strength, allowing the distillery character to sing with concentrated honey, soft smoke and rancio-esque oak flavours earning it 91 points from whisky gourmet Serge Valentin at Whiskyfun.
A 1968 vintage Bowmore, bottled in the early 2000s by Hart Brothers. The 60s were a time of incredible production from the distillery, with some legendary drams being produced - hopefully this one lives up to the fearsome reputation.
Bottled at cask strength in the first years of the new millennium, this 1968 vintage Macallan 34yo is part of the distillery's prestige Fine & Rare collection, released to showcase the evolution of the Macallan style over seven decades of the twentieth century.
