An old bottling of Glenturret 8 Year Old which, we estimate, dates from the 1980s. A medium-full honeyed malt with attractive youthful brio, the distillery is famous as the home of Famous Grouse - and for Towser, the former distillery cat who caught nearly 30,000 mice.
An 1980s bottling of the now defunct Isle of Jura 8 year old. Presented in the distillery's trademark shaped bottle and with a screw cap closure. A tiny island situated off the north east coast of Islay, Jura is home to more deer than people and was where George Orwell wrote 1984.
A 1970s square bottle of 8 year old Aberlour, bottled at 50% for the Italian market. These high strength old Aberlours enjoy a particularly lofty reputation. This bottle was produced for the Italian market.
An old bottling of 8 year old Glen Garioch. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s, a decade when the distillery became the first to use gas from the North Sea for heating and just after the number of stills at the distillery had been doubled from two to four.
Please note the bottle has a damaged label as shown in the photograph.
A 1980s bottling of 8 year old Blair Athol - the distillery that produces the core of the Bell's blend. This even trumpets that association with a "From the House of Bell's" sitting below their coat of arms.
An old square bottle of 8 year old Aberlour, bottled at 50% for the American market. These high strength old Aberlours enjoy a particularly lofty reputation. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1970s.
