The first official bottling of Glenugie since a near-impossible-to-find 5yo Grant McDonald bottling from about twenty years ago, this 1977 was bottled in 2010, twenty-seven years after the distillery closed its doors for the last time in 1983. Bottled at its impressive cask strength of 55% abv.
A 1965 vintage Glenturret from independent bottlers Cadenhead's. Presented in the delightful dumpy bottle and classic black label that was the norm for the firm in this era, this was bottled in September 1982, the year after then owners Remy-Cointreau had bought the distillery and started a period of sizeable investment.
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.
