A 1965 vintage whisky from the Invergordon grain distillery, aged for an impressive 45 years before bottling in 2011 by Clan Denny. Old grain is a style of whisky that's increasing in popularity and bottlings such as this show why.
At its appearance at the end of 2011 this was the oldest single malt whisky ever released by Loch Lomond. Distilled by distillery manager of the day Duncan Thomas and then matured onsite for almost 45 years before bottling.
An impressively aged whisky from Ben Nevis, one of the oldest we've seen from the distillery, bottled by Douglas Laing for the Old Malt Cask range. This was distilled way back in June 1966 and aged for 46 years in a refill hogshead before bottling in February 2013.
A independently released grain whisky from the Invergordon distillery, bottled by Adelphi. This was distilled way back in 1966 and matured for 46 long years before being bottled at cask strength in 2012.
Another of Gordon & Macphail's long-aged Glen Grants which, along with Glenfarclas, represent the best-value long-aged 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.
An old and well aged whisky from Benromach, bottled by independent retailer Cadenhead's. It was distilled in February 1966 and bottled in October 1993, the year that the (at that time) mothballed distillery was bought by current owners Gordon & Macphail.
