  • Highland Park 25 Year Old / Bot.1990s

    Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    Highland Park 25 Year Old / Bot.1990s

    Ever a complex and joyful dram, this 25-year-old expression from Highland Park is truly a cut above. Time spent in first-fill sherry oak contributes to a remarkable flavour profile – think thick, full fruit coupled with cinder toffee and vanilla fudge, accompanied by light oak and honey high notes and woven through with the thin tendrils of flavoursome peat smoke we know and expect from Highland Park. A beautiful drink.

  • Glenfarclas 15 Year Old / Bot.1970s

    Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    75cl / 40%

    Glenfarclas 15 Year Old / Bot.1970s

    An old bottling of Glenfarclas 15 year old. We estimate this was bottled in the 1970s, a decade which saw a great deal of change at the distillery. The on-site floor maltings were decommissioned, a visitors centre was opened and the number of stills were increased from four to six.
