A 1975 Dallas Dhu bottled at cask strength by the distillery as part of the Rare Malts. Matured for 21 years and still at a massive 61.9% this is a big and punchy whisky from the now closed distillery.
A 1975 vintage whisky from North Port Brechin distillery. This whisky has been matured for 26 years and bottled by Signatory for their Silent Stills series. Having been bottled from a single cask and cask strength, this whisky is limited to just 211 bottles.
A special bottling of Speyside Single Malt Whisky. This bottle was produced to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Forties Oil Field start up in September 1975. This whisky has been matured for 20 years and was released in 1995 to coincide with the anniversary.
A rare and interesting bottling from Gordon & Macphail's Rare Old range - a 1975 Glencraig. This isn't a distillery name, instead being what the Gleburgie distillery called the Lomond still made whisky that it produced between 1958 and 1981.
One of the great Taliskers, 6000 bottles of this inaugural bottling of the now-customary Special Releases Talisker 25yo appeared in 2001. Talisker 1975 25yo picked up 90 points from whiskyfun's Serge Valentin in 2008 and remains the only officially-bottled 25yo to date with a specific vintage.
Bottled in the mid 1990s, this 1975 Port Wood Glenmorangie 19yo is an early example of what would become one of the distillery's defining characteristics - the use of wine barrels to 'finish' the whisky's maturation. This bottling represents a small but significant piece of whisky history.
An epic Ardbeg, this is one of Douglas Laing's earlier Platinum series releases from 2004. Some old Ardbegs are sweet and fruity, but here the emphasis is very much on the smoke with the fruit and sweetness in the background. A belter.
A 1975 vintage Ardbeg from independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Platinum Selection series. Produced in the first year of Ardbeg importing large amounts of malted barley from the mainland, this is a slightly less peatier Ardbeg than one is used to.
