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.

Very few malts can stand anything like as much ageing as this Benromach has managed. Which makes it all the more amazing that the whisky inside the bottle can still seem so fresh. Of course, over fifty-five years, the angels get to take more than their fair share - only eighty-three bottles were yielded from the cask. MAXIMUM ONE PER CUSTOMER
A rare bottling of cask strength 1967 Aberlour complete with drinking accoutrements - four crystal glasses, a water jug, a bottle of Speyside water and a case to transport it all to your favourite drinking location.
This Macallan 1946 is rather unusual, in that it was made with peated malt due to the high post-war prices of coal. In our opinion it also happens to be one of the greatest Macallans ever released. The inital release of this was quite large and took a while for the distillery to sell, but it is now recognised as a classic.
A 1969 Macallan from single cask #10412, released at a hugely impressive 59% after 32 years of cask ageing. This vintage Macallan is part of the Fine & Rare series, the distillery's ne plus ultra range.
A very rare and difficult to find officially-bottled Glenfiddich from, we believe, the 1930s. This museum-worthy round bottle (Glenfiddich did not appear in its now-iconic triangular bottle until 1963) is one of the earliest Glenfiddichs we've found, and represents a significant piece of whisky history.
Bottled at cask strength in the first years of the new millennium, this 1968 vintage Macallan 34yo is part of the distillery's prestige Fine & Rare collection, released to showcase the evolution of the Macallan style over seven decades of the twentieth century.
A very rare and exclusive release by Gordon & Macphail in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Bottled from a first fill sherry cask laid down four days before the Queen's coronation and decanted on its 60th birthday, 2nd February 2012. A beautiful celebratory decanter presented in a handmade wooden box.
A 1966 vintage Macallan, released a decade or so ago as part of the distillery's Fine & Rare series. This amazingly ambitious range was designed to showcase Macallan throughout its history, with initial vintages going back to 1926 - all bottled at full cask strength.
A 1961 vintage Macallan from their Fine & Rare series, offering up whiskies from back through the 20th century. This cask strength 40 year old offers an amazing insight into the development of Macallan's style over the last half century.
