A 1967 vintage official bottling of Springbank. Aged for 10 years in a sherry butt, this is an incredibly deep colour. We're not sure if this is due to a very giving cask, or due to the use of paxorette which was common at this time.
The second of Macallan's Masters of Photography series sensibly avoids the controversies of the first, with a special 20yo sherried whisky and a book of photos by Albert Watson on the journey of the sherry cask. The presentation box contains ten of these photos reproduced as special prints.
A 1966 vintage Glenugie bottled by independent bottlers Signatory. A very rare malt, no official bottlings were ever released and independent bottlings weren't very numerous either. As the distillery closed in 1983, bottlings are becoming harder to find and are in high demand.
A 1949 vintage Glen Grant from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail. One of the minority of distilleries in Speyside that can take extended cask maturation, we estimate this was bottled in the 1980s and is therefore well over 30 years old.
A 1967 vintage Springbank from independent bottlers Murray McDavid. This was aged in bourbon cask 1314 before being bottled in August 1998 at 31 years of age and received 90 or more points from 5 of the Malt Maniacs on their monitor.
