This 1965 vintage whisky was distilled at Glencadam distillery. Specially selected by Gordon & Macphail, after 18 years of maturation, for their Connoisseurs Choice series. We can't get enough of these old-style brown labels.
Another 'single blend' from Adelphi, a single cask bottling of Lochside that is made up of both grain and malt whisky from 1965, distilled at the distillery and filled into the cask together. A big hit at The Whisky Show 2012.
Please note this is limited to two bottles per customer.
A 1965 vintage Glen Elgin, bottled for Italian distributer Samaroli, although with a neck label and bottle shape that is rather reminiscent of Cadenhead's releases of the time... A 14 year old whisky matured in sherry wood.
A 1965 vintage Ben Nevis from independent bottlers Cadenhead's. Bottled in 1979, this received 88 points from Malt Maniac Thomas Lipka. This bottle was produced during a turbulent time for the distillery. In 1964, the owner, Joseph Hobbs died and production was then stopped in 1978, not restarting until after this was bottled, in 1984.
Douglas Laing's Platinum Selection is a range that has yet to disappoint and has thrown up some real gems recently. Many of the releases have been outstanding. Inchgower is a Diageo distillery in Speyside, and when young is usually a medium-bodied, fresh and lively style of malt.
A 1965 vintage Coleburn from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range of bottlings. This was bottled a few years before the distillery closed in 1985, bottlings from the distillery were always rare and are therefore in high demand.
An old 1965 vintage whisky from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This whisky has been matured for 38 years and bottled at cask strength in March 2004. The tag line for this bottle is "Almond syrup and rose petals", sounds delightful.
This bottling of Knockando was distilled in 1965, three years before the floor maltings at the distillery were decommissioned and four years before the number of stills was doubled to four. The bottle is presented in a burgundy box.
