A 1960 vintage Bunnahabhain released by independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. Distilled in December, it was aged in a sherry cask for 38 years before 194 bottles were yielded in November 1999.
An impressive 1960 vintage whisky from Tamdhu, bottled by Gordon & Macphail for their Private Collection from their impressive stocks of excellent old whisky. With an outturn of only 36 bottles, this is an impressively rare slice of history.
Released through Oddbins around the turn of the century, only 300 bottles of the 1960 Laphroaig were labelled as such - the worldwide release was the 40 year-old. A wonderful dram, this is the oldest offically-bottled Laphroaig.
Another stunning packaging job for this limited release of fifty-year-old Highland Park 1960, featuring a sterling silver abstract 'cage' around the bottle by Scottish artist Maeve Gillies and a natural-look wooden box. The official tasting notes suggest a sherry influence on this, with tobacco, raisins and cooked fruit.
