A rare bottle of Glenfarclas from the start of a decade which brought us the miniskirt, the Berlin Wall and Beatlemania. Then, as now, this family-run distillery was crafting beautiful single malts and aging them in sherry casks. This whisky is taken from cask 1775, which was part of the family's collection.
Filled from a single refill hogshead, these 287 bottles are part of Douglas Laing's acclaimed Old Particular series. The single malt within, distilled just 20 years after the distillery was founded, has notes of vanilla, buttered toast, marmalade and sultanas.
A great chance to sample this distillery's whisky, which is most commonly used in blends.
A fine example of aged whisky from Linkwood, one of Speyside's lesser-seen distilleries, bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their Old Particular series. This has been filled from a single cask into just 326 bottles.
An exquisite gift for those born in 1959. The Family Casks series has been created from the distillery-owning family's private collection, and provides a wonderful opportunity to sample whisky distilled almost 60 years ago.
Batch B1/17of the award-winning and rightly popular 12-year-old cask-strength whiskey from Redbreast. A rich and complex single pot still Irish whiskey, packed full of flavour and a big favourite at TWE.
Taken from the private collection of the family which runs the Glenfarclas distillery, this sherry-aged single malt is at least 55 years old. It would make a wonderful present for anyone born in 1958 – the same year that NASA, America's National Aeronautics and Space Administration, was founded.
A limited-edition whisky created to celebrate the modern British monarchy, using a blend of single malt and grain whiskies that have been aged for a minimum of 32 years. Union of the Crowns commemorates the accession of James VI, King of Scots, to the thrones of England in Ireland in 1603, thus uniting the realms under a single monarch.
The whisky is presented in a porcelain flagon embellished with a silver plaque and capped with a black stone set on a silver crown. It has rich, fruity aromas and flavours of dark chocolate orange, ginger and soft caramel.
Each bottle in this series is like a time capsule. Sourced from a single cask in the family-run distillery's private collection, this sherry-aged whisky was distilled just a year after Sir Winston Churchill had ceased to be Prime Minister of Great Britain. A superb gift for anyone born in 1956.
Celebrate the bard of Scotland with this commemorative gift pack from the Isle of Arran distillery. Alongside a bottle of their malty, sweet, spicy Robert Burns whisky, created in the poet's honour, you'll receive a matching tasting glass – perfect for toasting on the 25th January, or any other night for that matter.
A sherry-aged 1956 single malt from the family-owned Glenfarclas distillery. Part of their much-loved Family Casks series, this would make a wonderful gift for anyone with a connection to the year 1956.
Bruichladdich have made this whisky using entirely organic Scottish barley, derived solely from the 2008 harvest of Mid Coul farm. Their aim is to pay homage to the whiskies made before the Industrial Age, before the advent of pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilisers.
This single malt has been aged for eight years in ex-bourbon and Tennessee whiskey casks, and has notes of candied citrus, marine spice and creamy barley.
A single-cask bottling of Loch Lomond's sweet, buttery 21-year-old single grain whisky, created by Douglas Laing for their Old Particular series. The sweetness is balanced by notes of orange and warming spices.
Charcoal Perfected is an old-style whiskey from JW Dant, made at Heaven Hill in Kentucky.
It's no surprise that this refill hogshead of single grain whisky has made the cut for Douglas Laing's Xtra Old Particular series. Distilled in 1966, the whisky in these 161 bottles is 51 years old and has enticingly spicy aromas followed by sweet notes of treacle and fruit, with a vanilla honey finish.
