  • Craigellachie 10 Years
  • Glen Garioch 8 Years
  • Dailuaine 10 Years (sherry matured)
  • Bunnahabhain 10 Years



Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1993

Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1993

Finished for 15 years in Bual Madeira casks after a decade in ex-bourbon barrels, the third release in the Bond House No.1 series is the Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1993.

It is available exclusively in Travel Retail and at the Distillery’s visitor centre and apparently has a rare mineral and flinty side.



Tamdhu Ambar / Tamdhu Gran Reserva

Tamdhu Ámbar / Tamdhu Gran Reserva

Tamdhu has released its first travel retail exclusives. Tamdhu Ámbar is a 14 year-old matured in refill Oloroso casks (43% ABV, around € 80).

Tamdhu Gran Reserva doesn’t have an age statement, but it is matured in first-fill Oloroso casks and bottled at 46% ABV (around € 170).
