A delightful old bottling of Dalmore at 20 years old. This was bottled in the 1960s, when the distillery had just been purchased by Whyte & Mackay. Serge Valentin on whiskyfun.com gave it 93 points and commented it was sweet, fruity and full of secondary flavours.
A 2 litre, 1980s bottling of 5 year old whisky from the incredibly rare Glen Flagler.
