The 6th bottling of Brora 30yrs from Diageo is another classic 1970s-style Brora, and standards are just as high as ever, with overt citrus and medicine cabinet notes. This is yet another fabulous release from this much-lamented extinct distillery, scoring 93 points from Whiskyfun's Serge Valentin.

A 2 litre, 1980s bottling of 5 year old whisky from the incredibly rare Glen Flagler. It was not actually a distillery, but the name of the whisky produced from stills at the Moffat Grain Distillery in Airdrie. Only produced for 21 years between 1964 and 1985, Glen Flagler bottlings are highly collectable.
St Magdalene's 1979 entry in the Rare Malts series. The distillery closed in 1983, as part of the mass-closures across the industry at the time, and this is one of the few official bottlings that made it out of the distillery. It's an excellent malt, picking up a stack of 90+ scores from the Malt Maniacs.
Please note that this bottle has a low level.
