An intriguing Single Malts of Scotland bottling of whisky from Glen Grant. While the distillery isn't known for smokiness, there's a distinct whiff of wood smoke sitting in the background of this fruity 22 year old.
A 1992 vintage Longmorn from independent bottlers Signatory as part of their Cask Strength Collection. Most of the distillery's production makes its way into Chivas Regal 18 year old and Royal Salute, such is the quality of the malt.
Sherried Longmorn can be a thing of beauty, and this is definitely one of those - 21 years of maturation in a sherry hogshead has created an excellent whisky. Dark and fruity, with butter and spicy notes, this is a fantastic example of well-aged Longmorn.
A 1992 vintage whisky from seldom seen Speyside, one of the newest distilleries in the Speyside region. This has been aged for 21 years in a sherry butt, and the cask influence really shows, with rich, fruity notes complimenting the creamy spirit.
A 1992 vintage whisky from Bladnoch, bottled by independent bottlers Berry Brothers and Rudd. Distilled the year before the distillery was mothballed by then owners United Distillers, this was bottled in 2013 at 21 years of age.
1992 vintage whisky from one of the few remaining Campbeltown distilleries - Glen Scotia. Distilled in January 1992 and bottled in February 2014 at 22 years old. We've seen a few independently bottled Glen Scotia's recently and they've gone down very well - there's more to the distillery than is often thought.
A 21 year old Glen Keith from Belgian independent bottler The Nectar as part of its Nectar of the Daily Drams series. Distilled in 1992, this was bottled in 2013 – long after the distillery's mothballing at the turn of the millennium.
A 1992 vintage Bladnoch, released by independent bottler Hunter Laing as part of its Old Malt Cask series. Distilled in November, it was aged in a refill hogshead for 21 years before 322 bottles were yielded in May 2014.
A small batch of three refill Hoggies from Glen Scotia, Campbeltown's other distillery, for this new release in G & M's consistently great 'Cask' series. The colour is great and the strength is nudging 60%, so this should be pretty intense.
A special whisky commissioned by Gordon Wright and the Soil Association and produced by Springbank. This is the first completely organic single malt whisky produced. Bottled specially for the Millennium and named Dà Mhìle, which is Gaelic for 2000.
A rare old bottling of 10 year old Glenmorangie. Unusually for this whisky, it also carries a vintage, 1992, which we presume was something to satisfy the recipients, the Japanese market. It's rare to see a cask strength version of Glenmorangie 10 too.
