A long-aged 1976 vintage from the very seldom-seen Glentauchers distillery, this was bottled from a single bourbon hogshead that yielded just 150 bottles. Glentauchers keeps less than 1% of its spirit back for bottling as single malt, with the rest going into owner Pernod Ricard's blends, particularly Ballantine's.
A 1976 vintage whisky from Signatory, bottled under the Glencraig name. Glencraig is the name given to whisky distilled at Glenburgie using their Lomond stills, which were removed in 1981. A rare whisky, never officially bottled by the distillery.
The Rare Malts are a now-discontinued series of cask-strength releases designed by Diageo to showcase some of the hidden treasures in their portfolio. This little beauty was awarded 5 stars and 90/100 by Serge, www.whiskyfun.com.
The first of Glenglassaugh's Chosen Few series of single cask bottlings, as chosen by the distillery team. This one is the selection of Customer Account Manager Ronnie Routledge and has the combination of tropical fruit and sherry character that he loves in a whisky.
A 1976 vintage Glenury Royal, bottled by independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. The distillery closed in 1983 and bottlings from this distillery can be hard to find.
A 1976 Edradour from independent bottlers Blackadder. This whisky was distilled a year after Pernod Ricard, the distillery's previous owners, had purchased it. Edradour today is a well visited distillery, both for their excellent whiskies and also due to the very picturesque nature of the buildings.
This whisky was distilled in 1976 and has spent 35 long years aging in an oak butt. This limited release is bottled at cask strength and is said to taste of "Lashings of raisins and sultanas, dancing with spices, pineapples and cedar wood".
This single cask whisky was distilled 1976, a mere 7 years before production at Banff was stopped and the distillery was demolished. This whisky was specially selected by Cadenhead's for their 'Authentic Collection' and was bottled at cask strength after 21 years of maturation.
