A selection of three vintage blends, each being bottled before 2005.
1. Haig Gold Label bottled circa 1974: 40% | 30ml: A truly historic brand of blended Scotch whisky. John Haig set up the Kilbagie distillery in the 18th century, although his family were noted distillers some time before that (his great-great-grandfather was busted in 1655 for distilling on the Sabbath). His grandson (also called John) founded the Cameronbridge grain distillery in 1824, while later noted members of the Haig clan include WWI Field Marshal Douglas Haig, who was so magnificently lampooned by St. Stephen Fry in Blackadder Goes Forth.
2. Famous Grouse vintage 1989 12 year old: 40% | 30ml: A blend of malts that were distilled in 1989 and matured for 12 years before being used to create the the gorgeous blend. We can only assume that the whisky used came from Macallan, Highland Park and Glenturret.
3. Johnnie Walker “Oldest” bottled circa 1987: 43% | 30ml: The `Oldest` was the flagship whiskey of the Johnnie Walker company, prior to rebranding as `Blue Label` in 1992. Made purely from the oldest stocks, aged for up to 60 years. A true piece of blending history.
