Broadly speaking, Speyside whiskies can be classified as falling into one of two camps. At one end of the spectrum there are the light, grassy, 'lunchtime whiskies' (please note that TWE advocates responsible drinking!) such as Glenlivet; at the other end lie the rich, sweet, sherried qualities of Glenrothes and Macallan.

Thirty year old Macallan is a rare and rarefied whisky. The time spent maturing in carefully selected European and American oak casks which have previously held Sherry or Bourbon creates a rich, intense liquid, with a deep colour achieved wholly naturally through the interaction between spirit and wood. 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER
A very special bottle of Macallan, this was distilled in 1965 and bottled in 1994 by Signatory. With an average score of 92 points from the Malt Maniacs (including 93 from Serge Valentin) this is one of the bottlings that helped establish Signatory as one of Scotland's most important independent bottlers.
A new addition to the distinguished family of Balvenie vintage releasese. This is described as an aromatic single malt with an explosion of flavours; zesty fruit, brambles, rich honey, brown sugar and vanilla.
One of a pair of 25yo sherry casks of Glen Moray 1959 released by Italian maestros Samaroli in 1984. This is from a single sherry butt that yielded just 240 bottles. Extraordinary colour for a 46% whisky.
A relatively young entry in Glenlivet's much vaunted Cellar Collection, distilled in 1980 and bottled 'only' about 31 years later. Initial reports have been excellent for this whisky, with praise splurging across the internet, and we're rather pleased to have grabbed a few bottles.
