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 limited edition release of 25 year old Macallan, produced in honour of the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977. On top of that it's also a rather rarely seen magnum size bottle, to make sure you had enough to go around your street party...
Bottled in 2005 exactly fifty years to the day after it was distilled, this stunning Glenfarclas was hand-picked by George S. Grant to celebrate the Bicentenary of the birth of his Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather John Grant, a farmer and breeder of champion Aberdeen Angus cattle, who bought the Glenfarclas distillery in 1865. We believe that this could be the best malt ever released by one of our favourite distilleries.
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.
We tried this at the 2009 Whisky Show in London and it was definitely the star of the show. Unbelievably mellow, very complex with elegant fruit and soft oak. No one could believe that this was so old. A real classy whisky which should have a much higher price tag. If this was bottled by the distillery we would be looking at tens of thousands of pounds.
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.
Number 3 of only 20 such sets produced, this set comprises exquisite bespoke Rifle and Shotgun Cleaning Kit made by Gun & Rifle Makers William & Son and a bottle of Glenfarclas 1963 from cask 179 as part of their Family Cask series. The kit contains a brass plate that will be engraved with the initials of the recipient - truly unique.
A rare 1973 vintage Macallan, released as part of their Fine & Rare series. From cask number 6098, this was bottled at 30 years of age at full strength of over 60 percent, the angels seemingly weren't that thirsty, which is all the better for the rest of us.
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 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.
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 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.
