Enjoy this exceptional quartet of single cask whiskies hand-picked by world-renowned Scottish whisky expert and writer Charlie MacLean! Having been involved with the Society since its early days in 1983, Charlie has been instrumental in the growth of the Society from a small gathering of whisky enthusiasts in Edinburgh to the leading international club of whisky lovers. In 1992 he became the Chair of our Tasting Panel, leading the process of sampling and approving those single cask whiskies deemed outstanding enough to make it into a Society bottle.

The casks that follow represent a brilliant cross-section of Speyside whisky. Discover the nuanced complexities that made these casks special enough to bear the Charlie MacLean Selection seal.
