A 1990 vintage Glenrothes bottled by Hunter Laing as part of their Old & Rare series. Founded in 1878, the Glenrothes brand is owned by fellow independent bottlers Berry Brothers & Rudd. Having spent 23 years in a sherry hogshead, this has dried berry and fruitcake notes.
A 1990 vintage Imperial from independent bottlers Hunter Laing as part of their Old & Rare series. Distilled in October 1990, this was aged for 23 years in a sherry butt before bottling in November 2013.
A 1990 vintage Rosebank from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Cask Strength Collection. Bottled after 15 years of maturation in two refill sherry butts, this is a sweeter malt with notes of vanilla. Rosebank sadly closed in 1993 and bottlings are becoming ever increasingly sought after.
Airigh Nam Beist 1990 is a delicious vintage bottling from the ongoing success story that is Ardbeg. Sadly now discontinued due to exhausted stocks, 'the Beist' was an extremely popular Ardbeg, with assertive and powerful peatiness and a lovely honeyed edge. Oh, and it's pronounced 'Arry nam Baysht'.
A benchmark: not just for Macallan, but for aged whisky everywhere. Sets the standard for sherried Speysides to aspire to. 'Best Malt in the World': The Macallan 18 years old, Whisky Magazine, June 2004

Only the second official Rosebank since the demise of the Rare Malts series, this 21yo was distilled in 1990 and has been vatted from refill American and European casks. Lighter in style than 2007's officially-bottled 25yo, in a strong field this was another of the hits of 2011's Special Releases.
Ta-Daa! The first publicly-available bottling of Kininvie, workhorse for the Grant's stable. You may well have had Monkey Shoulder (which has plenty of Kininvie in it), but this is the first opportunity to try it as a single malt in its own right.
A very special bottling of Hazelwood whisky. This is the first bottling of single malt whisky from Kininvie distillery. Given to selected staff members of the distillery, it was specially selected to celebrate the 105th birthday of Janet Sheed Roberts on August 13th 2006. This whisky has been matured for 15 years and bottled at 105 proof (52.5%).
