This was the 6th cask of Inchmurrin that The Scotch Malt Whicky Society bottled. They call this bottle "From the carpenter's shop" Inchmurrin is one of eight single malts produced at Loch Lomond distillery, this is made possible due to the adjustable stills, which can be altered to make different styles of whisky.
A 1966 vintage whisky from an undisclosed distillery in the town of Ballindaloch, bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their Director's Cut series. Aged for an incredible 46 years in a sherry cask, this should be a stunner!
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.
A release of 35 year old Bruichladdich by Douglas Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask range. This was distilled in 1966, a few years after the distillery stopped malting its own barley and switched to buying it in from Port Ellen, and bottled just in time at a cask strength of 40.5%.
A 1966 vintage Glenkinchie from independent bottlers Cadenhead's, bottled in February 1988 at 21 years of age. 1966 was a difficult year for Scottish football fans, but hopefully a better one for whisky nuts.
