A 1999 vintage Aberfeldy from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail bottled as part of their Connoisseurs choice series. Much of the distillery's production is used as a base for the Dewar's range of blended whiskies, for which it is the spiritual home.

A great, but sadly neglected, Highlander, Blair Athol is one of the gems of the Flora & Fauna range. This expression has always tended towards the chunky, sherried style, with spices and oak adding complexity to rich maltiness. We felt that it was time to remind people about this over-looked dram.
A special bottling of Edradour 12yo. Songwriter Dougie Maclean has selected this single Oloroso cask from 1997 as part of the Homecoming celebrations and named it after his most famous song, Caledonia. This is the first in what will be an ongoing series from Edradour.
Stronachie is a mystery single Highland malt bottled by top-quality indie bottlers Dewar Rattray with the aim of emulating the Highland style of 100 years ago. The name is a revival of a lost 19th-century Highland distillery on the Perth-Kinross border, and the palate is described as having sweet woody notes and prominent peat smoke.
Stronachie was the name of a Highland distillery active between the 1890s and 1928. The Scottish agents for the whisky, A.D. Rattray, have launched a range using whisky from Benrinnes distillery. This is the 18 year old - a malty and honeyed malt.
Glendronach Revival is the culmination of nearly a year's hard work by the distillery's new owners, replicating their success at Benriach. This Oloroso-matured Revival received a whopping 92 points from the highly-esteemed Whiskyfun website.
Glencadam 15 has gone from strength to strength since a packaging facelift in 2009, at which time the strength was upped to 46% by owners Angus Dundee, who took over the distillery from Allied in 2003.
