Broadly speaking, Speyside whiskies can be classified as falling into one of two camps. At one end of the spectrum there are the light, grassy, 'lunchtime whiskies' (please note that TWE advocates responsible drinking!) such as Glenlivet; at the other end lie the rich, sweet, sherried qualities of Glenrothes and Macallan.

A recent release of the now-legendary Glenlivet 1964 Cellar Collection bottled in 2004 (one of Sukhinder's all-time favourite Glenlivets). This is now in Glenlivet's smart new packaging with the clear glass and the sliding wooden box.
A special and very rare bottling of The Glenlivet, bottled under the auspices of being for the company chairman. Distilled in 1963, bottled 21 years late and presented in wooden box with a script label.
A bottling of 1946 Macphail's, Gordon & Macphail's undisclosed distillery range of Speyside whiskies. Distilled just after the end of the war, this was bottled at a healthy 41 years of age in the last 1980s.
A 1998 vintage Strathisla from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail. The name Strathisla was not used until 1951, so when this was distilled, the distillery would have been known as Milton. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s.
Another of the hugely popular Macallan Gran Reserva series, released around the turn of the century. These releases were made in small batches from casks that were too good to be vatted into the standard 18yo release and are highly prized by collectors today.
