A 1974 vintage Longrow. The peated malt produced at Springbank distillery, this was first distilled in 1973, continued into 1974, then not again until 1987. 1974 has become a legendary vintage for Longrow fans, with delightful notes of tar and seaweed. Bottles from this vintage are incredibly sought after.
A single cask release of Ardbeg 1974 for the UK market, this time a mere 93 bottles from a bourbon cask. We are told there are very few old casks left at Ardbeg for this kind of bottling, so this may be one of the last released on these shores.
A legendary Ardbeg, the 1974 Provenance first appeared in Europe in 1997 shortly after Glenmorangie's takeover of the distillery. This version of Provenance was for the US market and was introduced in 2000. Please note that the boxes for these bottles are damaged.
A truly legendary Laphroaig from the 1974 vintage, this heavily-sherried 31 year old was a limited edition of around 900 bottles produced for a French retailer and scored a whopping 95 points from Serge Valentin on Whiskyfun before capping that with a Gold Medal and the Non Plus Ultra award for the highest scoring whisky out of all the entries at the Malt Maniacs Awards 2005. An acknowledged masterpiece.
