A well-aged 1970 vintage Ben Nevis from Belgian independent bottler The Nectar as part of its Nectar of the Daily Drams series. Aged for 43 years, this was bottled in 1970 – a rare example of Ben Nevis at this age.
Bottled in 2012, this 1969 vintage Balblair was aged exclusively in ex-bourbon American oak casks. A release of 999 bottles, this was produced at a time when the distillery malted its own barley on site and the stills were coal-fired.
After 2007's 'new' Black Bowmore, this White Bowmore is the second edition of the Noughties' 1964 Trilogy series, and has spent its life in bourbon casks, so should make for a very interesting contrast. Awarded 94 points from John Hansell in Malt Advocate, this was one of the most talked-about releases of 2008.
