A single cask release of 1967 vintage Coleburn. This whisky has been matured for 34 years and bottled by Douglas Laing for their Platinum Selection series. Bottled at cask strength and limited to just 287 bottles.
Samaroli is an Italian independent bottler, famed for the exceptional quality of their releases and for their arty, innovative labels and packaging. This Mortlach is an excellent example of the labels that Samaroli are so well known for.
A special release of Longmorn 1969 whisky, specially selected by Signatory for their 10th Anniversary in 1998. This whisky has been matured in Oak cask for 28 years and was bottle at cask strength specifically for the occasion. The bottle comes in a wonderful presentation box, complete with two Signatory-branded tumblers.
A 13 year old Coleburn, which has been aged for 13 years prior to being bottled for independent bottlers Cadenhead's. Coleburn bottlings are rarely seen nowadays - the distillery was sadly closed by Diageo in 1985.
Another of Gordon & Macphail's long-aged Glen Grants which, along with Glenfarclas, represent the best-value long-aged sherried Speysides available. Thankfully, Glen Grant is one of those special Speysiders (like Glenfarclas, Mortlach and Macallan) that is capable of withstanding immense oak ageing without tasting like a pile of wet sawdust.
