Caledonian 'Sovereign' 1982 / 35 years old 46.9%
This 35 year old single grain whisky comes from the Caledonian distillery which was at one time one of the largest grain whisky producers in Scotland. Situated in Edinburgh, Caledonian closed in the late 1980's and there have been very few bottlings of its whisky to date. Perfumed and aromatic on the nose, it has lashings of vanilla, toffee and ...
Carsebridge 'Sovereign' 1965 / 50 years old 41.5%
We think this incredibly rare bottling is the first example of Carsebridge we've had here at Whisky Galore. The distillery dates back to the 1700s, initially producing malt whisky before moving to grain after a few decades and by 1980 it was the biggest distillery in Scotland. Unfortunately just a few years later it become one of the victims of ...
Girvan 'Sovereign' 1988 / 26 years old 56.3%
Invergordon 'Cadenhead' 1972 / 43 years old 48.3%
Distilled in the column stills at the Invergordon single grain distillery, this two-barrel bottling from casks that were originally laid down on the 13th of December 1972.

Invergordon 'Sovereign' 1966 / 50 years old 50%

It is beautifully aromatic, with an intensely exotic smell of vanilla pods, stewed fruit (rhubarb, prunes) and a buttery shortbread tone. The palate bursts with fruits again, building to a dark chocolate and drying walnutt...
North British 'Sovereign' 1989 / 25 years old 59.7%
Distilled at the North British grain distillery, this bottling from Hunter Laing & Co. is a rare example of a single cask, single grain whisky. The flavours are typical of old grain whisky - freshly and strongly vanilla'd, with peaches, rhubarb and stewed prunes and a toffee'd, butterscotch and orchard fruit flavours. At 59.7%, for its age i...
Strathclyde 'Cadenhead' 1989 / 26 years old 58.1%
Wemyss 'Frosted Molasses Tart' (Invergordon) 1988 / 2016 46%
The tasting notes on this 1988 single cask bottling from Wemyss simply states: Allow this BUTT to settle to enjoy a molasses treat with a coconut frost. Sounds like it should be a rather indulgent treat. A release of 681 bottles.
