A 1966 vintage Bruichladdich bottled at 40 years of age in May 206 by independent bottlers Duncan Taylor. Distilled when the distillery was owned by A. B. Grant, by the time this was bottled, the distillery had been mothballed twice and was under new ownership.
A single cask distillery bottling from Auchentoshan. An very old example for their spirit, which is generally bottled much younger, released at 31 years old having aged in a hogshead since 28th March 1966.
An old Connoisseurs Choice bottling of whisky from Lochside, released back in the 1980s when Gordon & Macphail still used the, even for the day, retro looking brown livery. This was distilled in 1966 and aged for 21 years, and should be packed full of Lochside's trademark fruitiness.
The Bruichladdich Legacy series is a series of 6 bottles which were released annually from 2002 until 2007. All these whiskies are from incredibly old casks, and in some cases a marriage of several casks. This first release is a stunning 1966 vintage whisky bottled in 2002, also celebrating the Queen's golden jubilee.
A very old early 1980s Connoisseur's Choice bottling of Glenugie 1966, this was bottled at 15 years old. As Jim Murray once said, "...this distillery never seems to let you down. The rule of thumb is: find a bottle of Glunugie and you'll find liquid gold." (Whisky Bible 2008)
A 25 year old distillery bottling of Ben Nevis, distilled a couple of years after the death of Canadian Millionaire owner John Hobbs. From the colour on this one I'd guess that some of the whisky has seen the inside of a sherry cask...
Kinclaith is now very rare, having only been made for around twenty years at the Strathclyde complex in Glasgow before being dismantled in 1977. This bottling was done fro Gordon & Macphail's Connoisseurs Choice series, probably at some point in the late 1980s.
A very special bottle of Aberlour 30 year old. This whisky was distilled in 1966 and has been aged for 30 years. This whisky has been matured in a mix of two Sherry butts and one bourbon hogshead. It was originally 52.1%, but has been reduced down to 43% for bottling. Limited to just 1000 bottles.
