A vintage single grain whisky from Diageo's Cameronbridge distillery, bottled by independent bottlers Signatory. There's a lot of excellent very old grain whisky around at the moment, but rather fewer younger expressions, so this is a very interesting treat.
The latest vintage in this award-winning series of Irish single malts was distilled by Bushmils in 1995 and bottled in 2007, the oldest release to date. Bottled without artificial colouring, Knappogue Castle's unique, crisp clean flavour varies from vintage to vintage.
A Signatory Un-Chillfiltered bottling of 1995 vintage whisky from Miltonduff. A vatting of three ex-bourbon barrles distilled on February 23rd 1995 and bottled on March 18th 2013 after 18 years of maturation.
A 1995 vintage Glen Keith from independent bottlers Signatory as part of their Un-Chillfiltered Collection. Distilled on 8 November, it was matured in hogsheads 171200 and 171201 for 18 years before being bottled on 26 June 2014.
A 1995 vintage Braeval (also known as Braes of Glenlivet) released under Gordon & Macphail's Connoisseurs Choice label. Much of the distillery's production is used to produce volume for the Chivas Regal range of blends and no official distillery bottlings are produced.
A 1995 vintage whisky from Aultmore, bottled by the folks at Gordon & Macphail from their incredible stocks of whisky. Seldom seen in the wild, with most of the production going into Dewar's blends, this is a sherried example from this underestimated distillery.
More madness from Murray McDavid, starting with a 1995 vintage distillate from Bowmore. They first matured the spirit in ex-Bourbon before finishing the whisky in Viognier white wine casks from Guigal in Condrieu, for a total of 11 years in wood. They may also have spelled Viognier as Voignier on the label...
A hogshead of 1995 Macduff, bottled at full strength at the end of 2012 by Signatory for their Cask Strength Collection. You don't see a lot of these about, as most of Macduff's spirit goes into owner Dewar's William Lawson blend.
A 1995 vintage whisky from Imperial, now closed and almost certainly soon to be demolished. This was distilled on August 21st, matured for 18 years in a pair of hogsheads and then bottled on 2nd January 2014 by Signatory for the Cask Strength Collection.
A 1995 vintage Benrinnes released by independent bottlers Signatory as part of their Cask strength collection series in 2013. The distillery is named after the hill which overlooks the distillery, Ben Rinnes, which stands at 840 metres high.
