This release from Elixir Distillers' The Single Malts of Scotland comes from Glen Elgin. Distilled in 1995 and aged in a hogshead for 21 years, the distillery's typical fruit-cake spice is pushed through with a velvety texture and a long finish of toasted oats.
A single bourbon barrel of 1997 whisky from rarely seen distillery Glentauchers, aged in for 19 years. Glentauchers keeps less than 1% of its spirit back for bottling as single malt, with the rest going into owner Pernod Ricard's blends, particularly Ballantine's.
An 18-year-old Glenburgie from 1998, bottled for The Single Malts of Scotland. This is classic example of the Speyside distillery's character, full of fruit and sweet toffee notes.
You don't see much well-aged Ben Nevis, so we're delighted with this release from Elixir Distillers. This 1996 vintage was aged in a sherry butt for 20 years, picking up a lot of colour as well as dried fruit and chocolate flavours.
A single bourbon barrel of Balblair bottled for Elixir Distillers' Single Malts of Scotland series. Distilled in 1997 and aged for 20 years, this is a classic example of the distillery's spicy and fruity style.
A 1990 vintage Glenrothes bottled for the Single Malts of Scotland range. Fresh, fruity and gently spicy, despite its 26 years of maturation in a bourbon barrel, this is a gently moreish dram.
Bottled for the 60th anniversary of French importer La Maiso0n du Whisky, this was distilled at Ben Nevis in 1984. Aged for 13 years in first-fill bourbon casks and finished for 18 years in oloroso-sherry casks, this is fruity and floral with notes of Mirabelle plum, honeysuckle and coffee.

Made in 2009 at Caol Ila distillery, this Islay single malt has been matured for nine years in a single refill hogshead, before being bottled by Hunter Laing in May 2019 as part of its Old Malt Cask series. Ashy aromas of smoke and salty sea air develop on the nose, and the palate offers notes of peat smoke, toffee and sea salt.
The first edition of Auchentoshan Bartenders Malt was created by 12 competition-winning bartenders. Comprised of whiskies distilled between the 1970s and the early-2010s, this has notes of brioche, milk chocolate and dark apricots.
A typical example of fruity and spicy Glen Grant. Distilled in 1992 and aged in a single bourbon barrel, this was released by Elixir Distillers in March 2017 at 25 years of age.
Ledaig is the peated whisky produced at Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull. Aged in a bourbon barrel for 12 years, this is sweet, fruity and smoky.

This Cooper's Choice bottling of Glentauchers was distilled in June 2009 and aged in a first-fill bourbon barrel for seven years. This has classic notes of vanilla and coconut with a hint of spice.
A 2000 vintage Auchentoshan from independent bottler Signatory as part of the Un-Chillfiltered Collection. Distilled on 9 May, it was matured in a pair of hogsheads for 16 years before being bottled on 24 February 2017.
Strathisla is one of those great Speyside distilleries (like Glenfarclas, Macallan, Glen Grant etc) with a spirit capable of immense ageing. This Gordon and MacPhail bottling is astonishing value for money for a fifty-year-old malt.
