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 very rare 1940 vintage Macallan, this whisky was first bottled in 1977 and supply has been eked out with tiny allocations in the last few years since being introduced as part of the distillery's Fine & Rare series.
After 2010's 1938 Mortlach, the second of Gordon & Macphail's 'Generations' series has arrived - a 1940 Glenlivet which, like the Mortlach, has been bottled at 70 years old, making it the joint-oldest whisky ever released. Packaged in the same beautiful teardrop crystal decanter, this is one of the whisky events of the year.
A very old vintage Macallan distilled in 1939 as WWII was breaking out in Europe and bottled at the end of the 1970s at 40 years of age. One of the earliest vintages in the distillery's prestige Fine & Rare series.
The jewel in the crown, this for us is the most special aged Macallan whisky ever bottled. Christmas cake style fruit with all the complexity of a classy aged malt. This Macallan is in a league of its own and proudly sits alongside the more recent Lalique range.
An incredible whisky produced by and in honour of Malt Master David Stewart's 50th year with William Grant's. Bottled from cask 5576, a European oak sherry hogshead, at natural cask strength, it's been around at Balvenie as long as David and has almost learned as much.
