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 1966 vintage Macallan from independent bottlers Signatory. One of just 214 bottles that were extracted from cask 4177 in 1996, aged bottlings of Macallan are incredibly sought after. This was distilled in the year the owning trust was reformed as a plc, in advance of the company's flotation on the stock market in 1968.
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.
A 1966 vintage Glenugie bottled by independent bottlers Signatory. A very rare malt, no official bottlings were ever released and independent bottlings weren't very numerous either. As the distillery closed in 1983, bottlings are becoming harder to find and are in high demand.
A 1966 vintage Glenrothes which was bottled exclusively for The Master of Malt to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the earliest record of Scotch whisky distillation. Matured for around 27 years and limited to only 50 bottles.
A 1966 vintage Macallan from independent bottlers Signatory. This was bottled at 31 years old from a single cask. The bottling was awarded an impressive 91 and 90 points from Malt Maniacs Serge Valentin and Olivier Humbrecht respectively.
A lovely old bottle of the ridiculously rare Kinclaith, this is from the 1966 vintage and was bottled in the early 1980s at 16 years old for the Connoisseurs Choice series by Gordon & Macphail, who have labelled it as a Highland malt despite the fact that Kinclaith was made in Glasgow at the Strathclyde complex.
A 1966 vintage official bottling of Springbank. This was released as part of the highly acclaimed single cask 'Local Barley' series that has proved to be very popular and much sought after. Bottled at 30 years old, this carries a label with depictions of the distillery and its equipment.
A 1966 vintage Bowmore from independent bottler Duncan Taylor. Bottled in 2006 at 40 years of age, only 153 bottles came out of the cask. Released as part of a series of three single casks of the same vintage and age, this is a rare bottling and much sought after.
