Our 40 year old is a rare and outstanding beast. With this one, we’ve added malt whiskies from Bunnahabhain on Islay, and Tamdhu, Glen Grant and Glenlivet from Speyside, distilled from the mid to late 1960s and early 1970s, and complimented that with grain whisky distilled in 1966 from the now closed Port Dundas distillery and a 1965 distillation from the Invergordon distillery.
We’ve kept our malt content substantial with this release, so there is a whopping 90% malt, containing all the outstanding flavour and character of the above mentioned distilleries, not to mention the addition of some of the rarest and most aged grain whisky to be ever added to a blended Scotch whisky.
Our 40 year old is bottled and released in small batches, with this current release being batch 5, and every batch release is different so you definitely do not want to miss out on this one.
