A Signatory Un-Chillfiltered bottling of 1997 vintage whisky from Clynelish in the Northern Highlands. A vatting of two hogsheads distilled on October 29th and bottled on November 14th 2013 after 16 years of maturation. 1997 has been a great year for indie bottlings of Clynelish and we're pleased to see another from Signatory.
A 1997 vintage whisky from Benrinnes, bottled by Gordon & Macphail for the Connoisseurs Choice range. Not a lot of whisky from the distillery gets out as single malt, being a blenders favourite, but fortunately G&M have impressive stocks hidden away in their warehouses...
A 1997 vintage Auchentoschan from independent bottlers Signatory as part of their Un-Chillfiltered Collection. Distilled on 17 December, it was matured in bourbon barrels 101827 and 101828 for 16 years before being bottled on March 3 2014.
A single cask Glenlivet matured in a first-fill sherry butt from Signatory, bottled as part of their Un-Chillfiltered Collection. Distilled on November 6 1997, matured for 16 years and bottled on February 4 2014.
Another edition of Clynelish for Diageo's yearly vintaged Distiller's Edition range. Clynelish's take on the series' 'Double Maturation' is to finish the whisky in oloroso sherry casks, to add an extra chunk of rich sweetness.
A single cask 1997 vintage Clynelish released in 2013 by independent bottlers Hunter Laing as part of their Old Malt Cask series. This was one of the first bottlings released after Douglas Laing was split in two, with Stewart creating Hunter Laing.
A 1997 vintage whisky from Arran, bottled by veteran spirits experts Berry Brothers and Rudd. This was bottled in 2013 at 16 years of age, having spent an unspecified period being finished in a cask which used to hold Marsala.
A 17 year old Clynelish from Belgian independent bottler The Nectar as part of its Nectar of the Daily Drams series. Aged in a bourbon cask (which seems from the colour to have been fairly active), we're expecting good things from this one.
