The Scottish Highlands are home to various distilleries making disparate styles of single malt. From the maritime malts of Oban and Pulteney to the light, citrussy Glernmorangie and the dry complexity of Glen Ord, there's something for everyone here. Read More »
A 1991 vintage Glenmorangie produced as part of one of their successful experiments with interesting wood. This was matured in new oak from Missouri in the USA and has a bourbony tang in addition to the regular Glenmorangie character.
A very limited release from Glenmorangie showcasing one of their successful experiments with different woods. This was matured in casks made from Chinkapin oak, native to North America, and was originally an exclusive bottling for World of Whiskies at Heathrow.
One of a series of extremely rare single cask, cask-strength releases from Glenmorangie. These releases were matured in a special type of new American oak and released in duty-free shops around the world.
A 17 year old Clynelish 'released' as a Manager's Dram. These whisky was selected by the manager and bottles were generally given to workers and friends of the distillery, meaning that they're rather good and not all that common.
A very rare 1970s bottling of 10 year old whisky from Glen Albyn. The distillery closed in 1983 and was demolished in 1986 and only produced a couple of distillery bottlings before it disappeared - this is one of them.
A special bottling of Glen Ord distilled in 1969, signed by Neil McKay and dated 17th June 1993. This bottle was produced to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the drum maltings at Glen Ord, which opened in 1968.
A 1971 vintage Glenury Royal released by Diageo as part of their Rare Malts series of bottlings. The distillery was one that didn't survive the cull of 1983 and has since been demolished. This version was produced for the French market, whose back label it carries.
The Rare Malts are a now-discontinued series of cask-strength releases designed by Diageo to showcase some of the hidden treasures in their portfolio. This particular dram is all the more precious for having come from a distillery closed in 1985.
One of only a tiny handful of official bottlings from the distillery also known as North Port (the others being part of the Rare Malt series). Brechin was demolished more than a decade ago, so this is a real collector's item.
A 1975 vintage whisky from North Port Brechin distillery. This whisky has been matured for 26 years and bottled by Signatory for their Silent Stills series. Having been bottled from a single cask and cask strength, this whisky is limited to just 211 bottles.
One of only a handful of long-aged distillery-bottled releases of Glenury Royal. This 1970 vintage is very special whisky from a tragically lost distillery. Impeccable cask selection has led to perhaps the best of Diageo's recent releases from Glenury.
