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 »
An extraordinary find, this is one of the rarest single malts we've ever come across. Glamis is the single malt from the long-extinct Glenfyne distillery (sometimes also known as Glendarroch), which was situated in Ardrishaig on the edge of Loch Fyne and closed in 1937.
Very similar in character to the Dalmore 50yrs in the crystal decanter (they are from the same batch of stock), this is an earlier presentation from the 1970s and is packaged in a smart black ceramic decanter within an individual wooden case. Dalmore ages better than perhaps any other Highland distillery, and gives Macallan a run for its money in the quality stakes, but stocks are always very low.
A true rarity - as well as being incredibly old, this bottle was never officially released for general sale. The remains of a batch bottled in crystal for the Japanese market in 1984, these bottles were given to staff and guests at an event to commemorate the re-opening of the distillery in the early '90s.
One of the most exclusive releases from the distillery, The Royal Brackla 35 Year old is limited edition of just 100 decanters, produced to celebrate both the 200th anniversary of the distillery and the awarding of their Royal Warrant from King William IV back in 1833.
Bottled in 1978 into just sixty beautiful cut crystal decanters, the casks for Dalmore 50yo were laid down in the 1920s, and some of the spirit is reputed to have been distilled in the late 19th century. This is one of the best 50 year-old whiskies ever produced and is the personal favourite of many connoisseurs worldwide.
