A 1990 vintage Bladnoch from veteran indie bottler Berry Brothers & Rudd, the oldest family owned spirits and wine merchant in the world. This was distilled a few years before the then owners United Distillers mothballed the distillery and a decade before its more recent rebirth.
We're lucky to have reclaimed this excellent Longmorn for The Single Malts of Scotland series - it was originally bottled in 2009 for an overseas market, but was shelved at the last minute. A nutty, appley Longmorn with a generous dollop of clove and cinnamon spices.
A 1990 vintage Macallan bottled by Speciality Drinks for their The Whisky Trail range in 2011. Rich fruit and oak flavours and a fantastically accessible, smooth, easy-drinking style make this great value for money compared to the official bottlings.
A single cask release of 1990 vintage Glen Ord. This whisky has been aged for 21 years and matured in a Refill butt. Bottled for Douglas Laing's Old Malt Cask series, at their preferred strength of 50%.
A 1990 vintage whisky from Miltonduff, distilled in May, matured for 21 years in a refill hogshead and bottled in November of 2011 by the folks at Douglas Lain for their Old Malt Cask range of whiskies.
An 18 year old Mortlach, distilled in 1990 and bottled in 2009 by Murray McDavid. Continuing their love of finishing whisky in interesting casks, this spent the last part of its time in wood sitting in Premier Cru Domaine Leroy red wine casks from Vosne-Romanée, one of the top wines from one of the highest quality growing areas in France.
A 1990 vintage Laphroaig bottled by indie bottler Montgomerie's in July 2009 at 18 years of age. This was distilled in the early days of legendary former manager Iain Henderson's reign at the distillery.
