  • “A deep ruby tint, rich top notes of dried fruits macerated in Armagnac, with pencil shavings at base. A compelling balance of sweet and dry.”
    Charlie McLean MBE
  • “The time in the cask makes it hard to think that this is a grain whisky. Dark brooding Sienna brown in colour, the nose does not disappoint with a rich note of dried apricots, dates, and raisins. The finish is long with all those initial fruit flavours to the fore.”
    Scottish Field

Character

Rich, decadent and intense with a resinous quality and dried fruits on the nose followed by roasted coffee and Muscavado toffee notes on the palate. An exceptional, highly unusual release with a character reminiscent of greatly aged malt whisky.

Significance

Distilled in 1968 and matured for 53 years in a single sherry butt, this is an incredibly rare release crafted from an unlikely marriage of European oak and Girvan grain. With a deep and intense character drawn from 53 years in best quality European oak this is today almost unrecognisable as grain whisky but with a delicious underlying richness that reveals its roots.
