Another of Gordon & Macphail's long-aged Glen Grants which, along with Glenfarclas, represent the best-value long-aged sherried Speysides available. Thankfully, Glen Grant is one of those special Speysiders (like Glenfarclas, Mortlach and Macallan) that is capable of withstanding immense oak ageing without tasting like a pile of wet sawdust.
This is the 3rd cask that The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottled from Fettercairn. They titled this one "The oldest yet", as it was their oldest bottling at the time of release. This is sweet and dry with notes of ginger and spice.
A rare 1970s Cadenhead's bottling of this now-defunct Speysider. It's great how the fonts on these labels are such a good guide to the tastes of the times - check out the Caperdonich 1965 or the Macallan 1963 if you don't believe us.
A 1962 vintage Oban from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. Distilled at a time when the distillery still had their own floor maltings, this was aged for 20 years before bottling in the early 1980s.
A special bottling of Highland Park to commemorate the retirement of company chairman John Goodwin. Bottled at 35 years of age – the same time Goodwin spent with the company – this was bottled at cask strength in October 1997, two months before he retired.
Please note the tin is slightly damaged, as shown in the photograph.
A 1962 vintage distillery bottling of Springbank. This carries the white labels that was used for limited edition bottlings throughout the 1990s and was distilled a couple of years after the distillery stopped using its on-site maltings for a period of over 30 years.
An incredible whisky produced by and in honour of Malt Master David Stewart's 50th year with William Grant's. Bottled from cask 5576, a European oak sherry hogshead, at natural cask strength, it's been around at Balvenie as long as David and has almost learned as much.
