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.

A 1957 bottle of Glenlossie from independent bottlers Cadenhead's, bottled at 21 years of age. This was awarded an impressive 92 points by Malt Maniac Serge Valentin, who commented it had notes of ginger, liquorice and tangerine.
A 1955 vintage Glen Grant bottled by Gordon & Macphail, owners of one of the most extensive collections of old casks, from Glen Grant and elsewhere, in Scotland. This has matured for over 50 years, an impressive feat that very few distiller's spirits can stand up to - Glen Grant can.
A 16 year old Aultmore bottled to celebrate the distillery's 100th anniversary. It's a rare limited edition release and comes in at an eye-watering 63% abv. From the colour, it's probably safe to assume this was from a sherry cask.
Not the most expensive malt in our Luxury Collection, but this is a class act, and a benchmark malt for Longmorn, one of the very best distilleries in Speyside. Superb flavour concentration with the distillery's trademark grapefruit, boiled sweets and a hint of smoke.
An old bottling of Glenfarclas 8 Year Old. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1960s and, judging by the colour, has spent some time in sherried casks. The bottle is wrapped with its original 'tartan jacket'.
