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.
