A very pleasant appley, biscuity dram from an unheralded distillery that closed its doors in 1993 after only eighteen years of existence. We were suprised at the quality of this Pittyvaich, which wears its twenty years very lightly.
A 1989 vintage whisky from closed Lowlander Rosebank, gone since 1993 and now a number of attractive apartments. This was matured for 15 years in a bourbon hogshead before bottling in February 2005 by Cadenhead's.
Finished in casks previously containing Pedro Ximenez sherry, this is the most popular of the 'Distillers Edition' expressions of the Classic Malts. A delicious layer of sherry sweetness smooths out the rough edges of the standard bottling
A rather rare Glenmorangie 1989, bottled in 2005 just a fortnight shy of its sixteenth birthday. This has been fully matured - not finished - in a tawny port cask, imparting a deep, rich colour and plenty of flavour.
A 1989 vintage Macallan selected as part of the Masters of Photography series, celebrating the work of Annie Leibowitz. This was matured in a sherry butt and features a photograph of actor & director Kevin McKidd entitled 'The Gallery'.
