'The spiciness comes right through from the start giving a subtle lift to the rich fruits, light sherry and ginger loaf...A very elegant, superbly balanced middle-weight dram.' Dave Broom in Whisky Magazine, Jan 2003
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 Mortlach from independent bottlers Douglas Laing, released as part of their Directors' Cut series. Distilled in February, this was aged for 25 years in hogshead number 10321 before 129 bottles were yielded in March 2014.
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 1989 vintage Bowmore which was aged entirely in port casks for 23 years and bottled in 2013. This was distilled in the year that Suntory first bought a stake in Morrison Bowmore distillers. This has notes of blood orange, spices and winter fruits.
