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 special and very rare bottling of The Glenlivet, bottled under the auspices of being for the company chairman. Distilled in 1963, bottled 21 years late and presented in wooden box with a script label.
A bottling of 1946 Macphail's, Gordon & Macphail's undisclosed distillery range of Speyside whiskies. Distilled just after the end of the war, this was bottled at a healthy 41 years of age in the last 1980s.
A 1963 vintage entry in Glenfarclas's Family Casks range, part of the 10th release of single cask bottlings. Bottled in 2012 it's a rich old traditional whisky from the distillery, packed full of sherry fruit.
A 1949 vintage Glenlivet drawn from the scary end of Gordon & Macphail's well-stocked warehouses. Glenlivet is a spirit that can happily take a lot of aging and this one is a perfect demonstration, having sat in a cask for over 50 years..
A 1949 vintage Strathisla from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail. The name Strathisla was not used until 1951, so when this was distilled, the distillery would have been known as Milton. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s.
