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 »
This is the 3rd cask that The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottled from Fettercairn. They titled this one "The oldest yet", as it was their oldest bottling at the time of release. This is sweet and dry with notes of ginger and spice.
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 very rare Signatory bottling of Glenugie 1976 from a single cask, bottled in 2001. The vast majority of Glenugie's spirit went for blending and the distillery was closed in 1983, so single malt expressions are rather rare nowadays.
A 19 year old Brora from 1982, bottled in 2001 by Ian Macleod for their Chieftan's range of whiskies. Distilled only a year before the distillery closed down, this spent its life maturing in a sherry butt.
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 1973 vintage Glenglassaugh released as part of the distillery's first batch of rare cask releases. Distilled on December 5, this was matured for 40 long years, including a final finishing period in a manzanilla sherry puncheon, before being bottled in February 2014.
This whisky was filled on the 17th May 1993 for Rebecca Stephens, the first British woman to conquer Mt. Everest. 10 years later, it was bottled to celebrate both the 10th anniversary of this acheivement and the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of Mt. Everest.
A brilliantly-balanced mouth-coating beauty, this Glenury Royal is a very special whisky from a tragically lost distillery, and we've always been surprised that it didn't sell out years ago - especially after a 92 point review from Whiskyfun.
A very rare 1960s vintage from North Port distillery, also known as Brechin. This 1968 vintage was bottled by Gordon & Macphail for the Connoisseurs Choice selection in the early 1980s, around the time the distillery was closed for good.
A 1966 Lochside from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of the Connoisseurs Choice range. Formerly the site for Deuchars' Beer Brewery, Lochside opened in 1957 as a joint grain and malt distillery. Closed in 1992, official bottlings were rare and independent bottlings are therefore highly sought after.
A belated entry in Diageo's 2011 Special Releases selection, hitting the market in early 2012. Closed in 1985 and since demolished, whisky from the distillery is sought after by collectors and drinkers alike due to the comparatively small number of bottlings available.
A 1970 vintage North Port (also know as Brechin) bottled by Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. Almost all of the distillery's production went into blends, with the first official bottlings not appearing until the mid-1990s, a decade after the distillery had closed.
