A 1999 vintage Glendullan from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice series of bottlings. Aged entirely in first fill bourbon casks, this has notes of pepper and orange.

A 1966 vintage Glendullan from independent bottlers Cadenhead's. Distilled a few years after the distillery underwent major refurbishment and reconstruction, this was aged for 31 years in an ex-sherry cask and can therefore be expected to be a rich single malt.
