One of only a tiny handful of official bottlings from the distillery also known as North Port (the others being part of the Rare Malt series). Brechin was demolished more than a decade ago, so this is a real collector's item.
The first official bottling of Glenugie since a near-impossible-to-find 5yo Grant McDonald bottling from about twenty years ago, this 1977 was bottled in 2010, twenty-seven years after the distillery closed its doors for the last time in 1983. Bottled at its impressive cask strength of 55% abv.
The re-packaged version of the famous Highland Park Bicentenary bottle. Although the original version was believed to have sold out on release in 1997, hundreds of bottles were found in a Japanese warehouse in 2008.
A whopping 16th entry for Talisker in the annual Diageo Special Releases, this time the oldest bottling offered by the distillery so far - a 35 year old whisky, distilled in 1977 and matured in a mixture of refill American and European oak casks.
Jura's 1977 release is named Juar (Gaelic for Yew Tree). Aged for almost 34 years in three first fill bourbon casks, it was then finished in ruby port pipes for the last year. This has initial notes of peach melba, lemon and apples, turning more tropical as it develops in the mouth.
A much sought after early 2000s bottling from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, distilled at now-closed cult distillery Brora. Distilled in February 1977 and bottled in October 2002 after 25 years in wood.
A rare and highly sought-after Laphroaig from the 1977 vintage bottled in the spring of 1995, just after the distillery gained its warrant from the Prince of Wales. This bottle has a very good reputation and is extremely hard to find these days.
