A 1968 vintage Glen Keith from the folks at Gordon & Macphail under their Connoisseurs Choice banner. The distillery fell silent in 2000 after a mere 43 years of production but hopefully new owners Chivas Brothers will kick it back into life.
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.
The third in Glenglassaugh's recent series of very special casks editions released as the Manager's Legacy series. This is a refill sherry cask from 1968, bottled to commemorate Bert Forsyth's stewardship of the distillery. A gentle dram with delightful notes of blackberry pie & heather.
A brilliantly-balanced mouth-coating beauty, this Glenury Royal is a very special whisky from a tragically lost distillery, and we've always been surprised that it didn't sell out years ago - especially after a 92 point review from Whiskyfun.
A very rare 1960s vintage from North Port distillery, also known as Brechin. This 1968 vintage was bottled by Gordon & Macphail for the Connoisseurs Choice selection in the early 1980s, around the time the distillery was closed for good.
A 1968 vintage Bruichladdich bottled for the Stillman's Reserve range at 25 years old in the mid-1990s. 1960s vintages of Bruichladdich (particularly old official bottlings such as these) are pretty rare and this collectable bottle should be a treat for drinkers too.
Another bargain Speymalt Macallan from Gordon & MacPhail. This 1968 vintage has been bottled at 43% and comes in at just over half the price of a miniature of the officially bottled Macallan 1968 at 46.6%. Thank you, G&M.
