A very rare 1968 vintage whisky from Bruichladdich distillery. Matured for 30 years and released for the 10th anniversary of Signatory independent bottlers. Presented in a black case, complete with two glass tumblers.
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.
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 bottling of Bowmore from independent bottlers Signatory. The distillery was purchased by Stanley P. Morrison (later to become Morrison Bowmore) in 1963 and there are many bottlings distilled in the latter part of the decade that are simply stunning.
A beautiful bronzed dram from Macallan, distilled December 10th 1968, aged for 26 years and then bottled by Signatory in November 1995. The distillery produced some excellent spirit in the late 1960s and Signatory have a bit of a reputation for having chosen some of their best casks.
A 35 year old Bowmore, distilled in 1968 and bottled as part of the Celtic Heartlands range. With Jim McEwan behind the selection you're fairly safe that each bottle in the series is going to be quite special.
A 1968 vintage Kinclaith, bottled by Gordon & Macphail. The distillery was only operational for 18 years and no official bottlings were ever released, with almost all the production going towards the Long John blend. Bottlings from the distillery are therefore very rare and in high demand.
A 1968 vintage Springbank. This is labelled as a 10 year old, but was actually bottled at most a few weeks short of its 12th birthday. This was distilled during a 30 year hiatus of the distillery using malt imported from elsewhere.
A 1968 vintage bottling from Bowmore, released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the foundation of Stanley P Morrison (later to become Morrison Bowmore). This is a big bold whisky with notes of passion fruit and a peaty kick.
