A special and rare bottling of Teaninich single malt, more usually found these days as part of Johnnie Walker. This was released in 1991 to celebrate the reopening of the distillery, closed since 1985, and a visit from the Highland Regional Council, Ross & Cromarty Distinct council and the Ross & Cromarty Local Enterprise Company.
This is the 25 year old bottling from the much lauded Millennium Set of releases from Springbank. The set of 6 contained whiskies bottled at 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years of age. This particular bottling received an impressive average of 91 points from 6 of the Malt Maniacs.
A 1970 vintage Port Ellen, bottled in the late 1980s at 17 years old by Gordon & Macphail for their Connoisseurs Choice range. G&M had some fantastic casks of Port Ellen in the late 80s and we suspect this will be excellent.
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'.
One of the rarest bottlings from this closed cult distillery, bottlings of which are relatively rare themselves. Just 67 bottles were yielded from the single ex-sherry butt. This was distilled in September 1982, aged for 31 years and bottled at cask strength in October 2013.
Please note this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
A half bottle of 12 year old Macallan bottled especially to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of malt producers Muntons which occurred in 1996. Presented in a box along with a pair of Edinburgh Crystal tumblers.
A 1970 vintage Hillside bottled as part of Diageo's Rare Malts series. Dormant from 1899 to 1938, Glenesk reopened as a grain distillery. Converted to a malt distillery, it was renamed Hillside in 1964, then renamed back to Glenesk around 1980 before being closed for good in 1985. Bottlings from this distillery are highly sought after.
