A 30 year old whisky from closed St Magdalene, aka Linlithgow, which stopped production in 1983 and has since been converted into flats. This whisky was distilled in October 1982 and bottled in February 2013 after maturing in a refill butt.

Please note that this bottle has a low level.

A 1982 vintage whisky from closed St Magdalene (aka Linlithgow), distilled in the year before its closure. This was matured for a total of 24 years, first in bourbon casks and then in casks that had previously contained vintage port.

A very rare bottling of St. Magdalene single malt (aka Linlithgow). The Waterloo St. bottling was distributed to Diageo engineering staff and VIPs in 1998 in celebration of 100 years at Ainslie & Heilbron's buildings at 64 Waterloo Street in Glasgow.
