A stunning vintage single malt that was produced at the Glenlivet distillery in 1950 and bottled, having spent over half a century in cask, by Gordon & MacPhail in 2001. This highly collectible Speysider comes in fantastic condition complete with original wooden presentation box.
It is becoming increasingly difficult, almost impossible to find vintage whiskies these days.
Thankfully over the years Gordon and MacPhail have released bottles like this, a great old Speysider distilled in 1955 and then aged 42 years before being bottled in 1997.
This is part of the Gordon & MacPhail Distillery Labels series, which replicates the livery the Elgin-based bottlers used in the mid-20th century when they produced the only official bottlings (under license) for many distilleries like this.
Buffalo Trace Distillery has announced their fourth release of the coveted O.F.C. Bourbon Whiskey, distilled in 1994 and aged 25 years.
This is the fourth O.F.C. Vintage release, and like the previous releases, the 1994 Vintage will arrive in a wooden display box containing a provenance card. Inside the wooden box lies a crystal bottle with real copper lettering in-laid in the bottle with a hand applied paper label. The label on the back of the bottle notes the milestones for the year 1994. The provenance card contains the same information found on the back label.

The first vintage from the 21st century in the AnCnoc range from Knockdhu distillery, this 2000 vintage has been bottled at 46% without colouring or chill-filtration. AnCnoc Vintage 2000 has matured in Spanish oak ex-sherry butts and American oak ex-bourbon barrels and has been bottled in its most natural form, neither chill-filtered nor coloured.
Aged in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels, just 670 bottles of anCnoc 35 Year Old Second Release are available globally.
“The 35-year-old second release is a special expression for anCnoc, having been matured for more than three decades in our traditional dunnage warehouses which still retain their earthen floors and add so much to the quality and character of this special liquid.”
“The second release has lain in ex-Bourbon barrels, offering fans something slightly different to the original expression. Our limited edition is a testament to the 35-year-old’s popularity with whisky lovers worldwide and we’re confident that this unique release will entice drinkers to add it to their collections.”
Stack joins sister expressions Peatlands, Tushkar, Rutter, Flaughter, Cutter and Rascan in the award winning range carrying the names of traditional peat cutting tools, referencing the heritage within whisky making and bringing it into the modern day. The term ‘stack’ refers to the last step in the gathering process, where the peat blocks are stored together to dry ahead of being burnt.

The Balblair 2003 vintage was aged exclusively in ex-bourbon American Oak barrels and said to have the signature barrel notes of toffee, butterscotch, and vanilla.
The Balblair Distillery was founded by John Ross in 1790 and thus claims title to the “second oldest [legal]working distillery in Scotland.” The word “balblair” is said to be translated from the Gaelic as “battlefield” or “town on the plain.” It was owned by a variety of local owners until purchased by Allied Distillers in 1970 until purchase by Inver House in 1996.
