Ardbeg-1975-11 year old (1)
Bottled by Duthie & Co. Aberdeen. Good label. into neck. 750ml. Single Malt. 86 U.S. Proof.

"... it hasn't got that very peculiar herbal and tarry fruitiness that these Arbegs tended to develop after more years in wood, and I wouldn't say it's extremely complex spirit, but then again, only 11 years." (5 stars-Whiskyfun)

Blair Atholl-1967 (1)
Bottled 1983. Selected by Narsai M. David. Bottled by Duthie & Co. Aberdeen. Good label. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 92 U.S. Proof.

Caol Ila-1967 (1)
Bottled 1983. Selected by Narsai M. David. Bottled by Duthie & Co. Aberdeen. Good label. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 92 U.S. Proof.

"...Mouth: oh wait, no no no! This is vibrant, lively, sharp, and pretty much alive! It's rather herbal, I'd say, with some absinth, genepy, other weirdish herbal liqueurs and spirits, a lot of aniseed, then oils and tart green fruits. Limes aplenty, then smoked salmon, smoked haddock and, yes, caviar. Caviar in a bottle! Smoked caviar" (5 stars-Whiskyfun)

Glenkinchie-1966-20 year old (1)
Bottled 1986. Bottled by Duthie & Co. Aberdeen. Good label, lightly scuffed. into neck. 750ml. Single Malt. 86 U.S. Proof.

"...Waxy lemons and oranges, drops of brine, old rum, green tea again, chamomile tea, cider apples and green pears, a little tobacco, a smokiness... What's really interesting is this saltiness. Has this barrel been aged at Lagavulin? Finish: quite long, on the same aromas, for a long time. The aftertaste is a notch drying, but that's cool." (5 stars-Whiskyfun)

Glenfarclas-1969-8 year old (1)
Bottled 1978. Bottled and Shipped by Averys, Bistrol. Good label. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 86.8 Proof.

"... I'd call this baby an intellectual whisky. The more you wait, the more it gets kind of Dostoievskian, in a way. I fact, this old young Glenfarclas is fighting with you, and I'm not sure you'll win." (4.5 Stars-Whiskyfun)

Glen Grant-1967-10 year old (1)
Bottled 1978. Bottled and Shipped by Averys, Bistrol. Good label. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 86.8 Proof.

"...All that at a perfect strength. Finish: quite long, superbly chocolaty, well in the style of the best old very sherried Macallans from the better days." (5 stars-Whiskyfun)

Highland Park-1970-8 year old (1)
Bottled 1978. Bottled and Shipped by Averys, Bistrol. Good label with some staining. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 86.8 Proof.

"...Good solid body. Finish: long, acrid, ashy and grassy. This feeling of ink and pepper again in the aftertaste. " (4 stars-Whiskyfun)

Highland Park-1966-12 year old (1)
Bottled 1978. Bottled and Shipped by Averys, Bistrol. Good label. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 86.8 Proof.

".. .fantastic touches of grapefruits and limes. Well the parts aren't that stupendous, but the whole is. Perfect fullness and oneness. Finish: long, very narrow, precise, smoky and mineral. The aftertaste is rather earthier, and smokier as well." (5 stars-Whiskyfun)

Highland Park-1963-15 year old (1)
Bottled 1978. Bottled and Shipped by Averys, Bistrol. Good label with some staining. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 86.8 Proof.

"...That was another summer of love in California! Mouth: amen. Bigger than the nose suggested, and pretty unusual. There are flavours that are rarely to be seen in whisky, such as various vegetable soups (really), some lovely bitter nuts, or the insides of fruit stones, some kind of salty and maritime things." (5 stars-Whiskyfun)

Jura-1966-20 year old (1)
Bottled 1986. Bottled by Duthie & Co. Aberdeen. Good label, lightly tattered at bottom left section. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 86 U.S. Proof.

"..Mouth: this kills me. I do not like mantras such as 'whisky was better in the old days', but let's face the facts, there are very few current bottlings that manage to reach this level of complexity. Okay, the latest/last official Broras, some Karuizawas... Other than that, zilch!" (5 stars-whiskyfun)

Finest Jamaican Rum-9 year old (1)
Bottled in 1980's. Bottled and Shipped by Averys, Bistrol. Good label with some staining. top shoulder. 750ml. Rum. 86.8 Proof.

Longmorn-1964-21 year old (1)
Bottled 1986. Bottled by Duthie & Co. Aberdeen. Good label. into neck. 750ml. Single Malt. 86 U.S. Proof.

".. Mouth: please call the anti-maltoporn brigade! Now, everybody knows that the old Longmorns could be totally stellar, but this is just 'it'. Only the body's a little less totally fantastic, but remember 86 US proof are only 43% alc/vol." (5 stars-Whiskfun)

Macallan-1969-8 year old (1)
Bottled 1978. Bottled and Shipped by Averys, Bistrol. Good label with some staining and lightly nicked. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 86.8 Proof.

"...rather fascinating, even if a wee bit of intellectualisation may be needed to fully enjoy this old young baby. Oh wait, there, menthol and liquorice." (5 stars-Whiskyfun)

Mortlach-1971-15 year old (1)
Bottled 1986. Bottled and Shipped by Averys, Bistrol. Good label with some staining. top shoulder. 750ml. Single Malt. 86.8 Proof.

"...the whisky's just great, if not totally magical. Great fatness. Finish: only medium, but everything's more than fine. Apples, wax, malt, lemons, soot, liquorice... Perhaps a salty touch in the aftertaste. Comments: in a way, it was a light fat one. Funny feeling. Quality was extremely high anyway." (5 stars-Whiskyfun)
