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 »
The 6th bottling of Brora 30yrs from Diageo is another classic 1970s-style Brora, and standards are just as high as ever, with overt citrus and medicine cabinet notes. This is yet another fabulous release from this much-lamented extinct distillery, scoring 93 points from Whiskyfun's Serge Valentin.
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. It was not actually a distillery, but the name of the whisky produced from stills at the Moffat Grain Distillery in Airdrie. Only produced for 21 years between 1964 and 1985, Glen Flagler bottlings are highly collectable.
An old Connoisseurs Choice bottling of whisky from Lochside, released back in the 1980s when Gordon & Macphail still used the, even for the day, retro looking brown livery. This was distilled in 1966 and aged for 21 years, and should be packed full of Lochside's trademark fruitiness.
Lovely old Cadenheads bottling of this terrific Highlander.
It's great how the fonts on these labels are such a good guide to the tastes of the times - check out the Dallas Dhu '62 or the Macallan 1963 if you don't believe us.
This is a 1967 vintage Glen Garioch from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This was distilled just a year before the distillery was decommissioned for five years. It then closed and reopened again (1995 to 1997) before this was bottled.
