A real rarity - an independently bottled cask strength 1974 vintage whisky from Glenlivet distillery, aged for 26 years and bottled just after the turn of the millennium. This whisky appears to have been only very lightly filtered before bottling. As such, we would advise filtering this whisky through an (unbleached) coffee filter prior to consumption to remove any traces of sediment.

A bottle of 1974 North Port (aka Brechin) bottled in 1993 by Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. North Port closed in 1983 as part of the cull of distilleries in that year and is now the site of a supermarket.
