An ancient dram aged for nigh on sixty years. Thankfully, Glen Grant is one of those special Speysiders (like Glenfarclas and Macallan) that is capable of withstanding immense oak ageing. An excellent malt.

One of the rarest single malts to have existed, Kinclaith distillery was housed within the Strathclyde Grain Whisky complex from 1957 to 1975. This 1969 vintage was aged for 40 years before being released by independent bottlers Signatory.

A legendary bottling of Bowmore bottled in 1979 to celebrate the distillery's bicentenary. Vatted from some phenomenal 1960s sherry casks, this is renowned by aficionados as one of the best Bowmore's ever - at a fraction of the pricetags commanded by the likes of Black Bowmore.

An 18 year old Longrow, the smokier of the drams produced by Springbank, bottled by Cadenhead's. Both Sprinbank and Cadenhead's have been owned by the same company since the 1970s, making this an intriguing bottle.
