A 1976 vintage whisky from lost distillery Glenury Royal, bottled by Gordon & Macphail for their Connoisseurs Choice range. Only a few bottlings have appeared since the distillery closed in 1983 and fortunately they still pop up from time to time, like this one has.
A 1969 vintage Teaninich bottled by Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice series. This was distilled the year before a new extension was built to the distillery with six new stills added.
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.
Please note this bottle has a faded label as shown in the photograph.
An old bottling of Glendronach 12 year old, in the incredibly sought after dumpy bottle presentation. We estimate this was bottled in the 1970s, the decade when a visitor's centre was opened at Glendronach.
A 1982 vintage Glenesk, bottled by indepcdent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice series in 1995. Unfortunately, we don't get to see many releases from Glenesk, especially since it was mothballed in 1983 and later converted into private housing.
A 1978 vintage bottling of Glenury Royal from The Master of Malt. Distilled on 22 November, it was bottled in the same month of 1993 at 15 years of age. The distillery was one of many that sadly closed in 1983.
A 1978 vintage Glenglassaugh released as part of the distillery's range of rare cask releases. This was matured for 35 years, including a final finishing period in a madeira cask, before being bottled in 2014.
