A vintage edition of the hugely popular Glenlivet Nadurra. This special version has been made with a single barley variety, Triumph (hence the name), and has been composed exclusively using malt from the 1991 vintage, bottled at 48%. As with other Nadurras, this Glenlivet has been neither coloured nor chill-filtered.
A 22 year old Signatory bottled whisky from Ben Nevis distillery in the Highlands of Scotland. This has been bottled without chill-filtration after maturing in a sherry butt - distilled on August 8 1991 and bottled on April 10 2014.
This is pretty exciting stuff - a single grain whisky from the extinct and rarely-seen Cambus distillery, bottled at full strength from a refill butt by independent bottlers Signatory. This was distilled in 1991, just a couple of years before the distillery was closed.
A recently released cask strength batch from the revitalised Glen Garioch distillery, this 1991 vintage picked up five stars from Class magazine, who call it "dry...with smoky charred wood/peat and apple fruit". Sounds good to us.
A 21 year old Tamnavulin from the Single Malts of Scotland range, distilled in 1991 and bottled in September 2013. One of the hits of The Whisky Show 2013, this is packed with green grassy notes and gently balanced by honeyed sweetness.
A 1991 vintage Aultmore released in 2013 by independent bottlers Hunter Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. This was distilled at a time when the distillery had a dark grains plant to turn some of their waste products into cattle feed.
A distillery-bottled Balblair from the 1991 vintage. Long known to blenders as a category 'A' malt, Balblair is a terrific malt whisky worthy of the renewed attention its recent makeover and thrilling vintage releases have bestowed.
A 1991 vintage Linkwood, released by industry legend John 'Jack' Milroy as part of his Frisky whisky series of bottlings. This was distilled in September 1991 and bottled in 2012 after 20 years of maturation at cask strength.
Ardmore are best known for their use of peat, despite being in the relatively peat free region of Speyside, and this whisky is no exception. It's an independent cask strength bottling by Gordon & Macphail and comes in at a fairly hefty 57.9% abv.
A bottling of Linkwood as part of Gordon & Macphail's Private Collection series, with an interesting red wine cask finish. The casks originally matured Cote Rotie, a red wine from the north of the Rhone region, and the finishing complimented an initial maturation in bourbon casks.
Please note this is limited to one bottle per customer.
A 1991 vintage Balblair which has been finished in casks which previously held Crozes-Hermitage Wine. The Balblair has been aged for just over 17 years before being transferred for its final 40 months of maturation. This period of maturation has added a fruity side to the whisky without dulling its original peppery nature.
A 1991 vintage Tamdhu from independent bottler Hunter Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. Distilled in May, it was aged in refill hogshead 10585 for 23 years before 215 bottles were yielded in June 2014.
