I am in possession of a Tomintoul Glenlivet 12 Years Old in a perfume shaped bottle. I have been told it is from the late 80s. Can you estimate the value? Would it be worth me keeping it for longer? T...

Angus Dundee Glencadam 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A very unusual whisky. I liked it, but it would benefit from a firmer malty middle to support the interesting component flavours.
Mackillop's Choice Caol Ila 1989, Cask 3322
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.70% 7 If Caol Ila can evoke the aroma and flavour of junipers, perhaps it can also suggest olive oil, vine leaves, couscous, baked aubergines. I have had great martinis in Tangier. Next time, a Caol Ila Sou...
Mackillop's Choice Glen Keith 1967
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.40% 7 A peatier expression of Glen Keith than I have tasted before.
Mackillop's Choice Glencadam 1974, Cask 10
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90% 7 Showing its age, but still with the distillery character. Glencadam has its devotees and, with the distillery's future uncertain, supplies are finite.
Mackillop's Choice Linlithgow 1982, Cask 1336
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.60% 7 Very pungent and powerful for a Lowlander. Tending toward harshness. This seems typical of these last Linlithgows.
Mackillop's Choice Tomatin 1975, Cask 4
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.20% 7 Perhaps because the distillery was built to make quantity, as a filler, the industry seems universally – but unfairly – to deny the possibility of Tomatin making a truly interesting single. I coul...
Mackillop's Choice Tomintoul 1966
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.50% 7 Delicate, and definitely Speyside, but not quite as elegant as some expressions I have tasted.
Smokey Joe Islay Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 3 Probably a young whisky, with a twoface profile. Fruit on the nose, smoke on the palate. And not much more. Pleasant but simplistic.
