"At Glen Keith the peating came from peat smoked water which was produced in Stornoway - until the plant there eventually blew up. They then started making a peat smoked water at Glen Keith which was used in the distillery. Some of this was also sent to Japan" (Hugh Thompson, retired distillery manager at Glen Keith & Strathisla)

700 ml, 44% abv, Scotland (Island)This 30 year old Jura single malt scotch is a work of art. The bottle carries a design of the Camas an Staca ancient standing stone for good reason. It symbolises the passage of time. And just like the stone itself, this 30 year old expression has waited long and patiently. A malt that will truly stand the test of time. Much like the Camas an Staca itself. 27 long years in American white oak, and a final three in the finest Amoroso sherry casks, have crafted a masterpiece. The choice of first fill American white oak casks gives this liquid notes of orange and tangy liquorice. It is then transfered into the finest Amoroso sherry casks for its final maturation. "An intense blend of Morello cherry, plum jam and earth allspice"

Limited Edition Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky 1976 Vintage demonstrates the results of an exceptional year of distillation.
"I consider this whisky to be a jewel amongst single malts and of the finest to have been released in Scotland" Robert Fleming, Distillery Director."Double-whammy of exotic fruits and honeyed vanilla points to the unmistakable influence of very old bourbon casks. A malt that reeks of great age from every pore. Fabulous interaction between the oak and barley but the great age is driven home by the spicier, drier riches that cling to the understated oiliness so typical of Tomintoul. Long and at times improbably lush with the malts having a distinct say before settling below the sea of gentle smoke and oak. Late drying vanilla and cocoa charms and redresses the vaguely fruity sub-plot. Truly great whisky....Supreme stuff!" (Jim Murray)
700 ml, 49.6% abv, Scotland (Speyside)Craigduff, 40 year old, 1973 vintage, single cask No 2516. Bottled in 2013 by Signatory Vintage for their Cask Strength range. 616 bottles produced, natural colour. This whisky could be described as double-peated, as peated malt was used in production, but also some of the water used was peated water made in Stornaway and run through the still to concentrate its peatiness. Craigduff is not a distillery. The whisky was an experimental peated single malt produced for Chivas Brothers in the 1970s, but not distillery released as a single malt.
It is believed to have been distilled at the Strathisla distillery. “Craigduff was made at the Strathisla Distillery and was made with heavily peated malt” (Hugh Thompson, retired distillery manager at Glen Keith & Strathisla) however Signatory have muddied the waters by declaring that it was distilled at the Glen Keith distillery nearby, this has since been denied by Chivas.

700 ml, 55.1% abv, Scotland (Islay)A rare limited release of extra-mature Caol Ila – the oldest Caol Ila ever released by the original distillers, and with bags of character. Complex, mature and well structured, it combines a palate and finish rich in mature peat smoke with elegantly drying, herbal accents to create a really pungent, moreish malt. Aged in a combination of refill American and refill European oak, the first note is of menthol cigarettes and freshly cut grass. Initally absent, the peat slowly builds and builds right to the very end of the finish.
