Each expression in the distinguished range demonstrates the very highest of quality, with only truly exceptional casks making it in to this rare selection.
|BBR Exceptional Casks Collection - North British Single Grain 50 Year Old|
Whether the spirit comes from a closed distillery, reveals a distinct flavour characteristic or has been matured in a particular barrel, each bottling has its own story to tell.
Four exemplary bottlings have been chosen to launch the Exceptional Casks Collection. Starting with a rare 50 Year Old North British single grain whisky (58.9%) taken from two remaining sister casks on their 50th birthday, December 18th 2012. There are only 472 bottles available which will retail for £500. It will be available to taste at The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show from 4th to 5th October 2014.
Two Single Casks of 1972 Glenlivet single malt, a hallowed vintage for those in the know, have been specially selected. The casks display remarkable characters after maturing for 41 years. There are only 170 bottles of Cask #1072 (53.2% ABV) and only 40 bottles of Cask #1081 (46.1% ABV) available. Both will retail for £650.
Finally, a single cask 1977 ‘Overproof’ (60.5% ABV) Jamaican Rum has been deemed extraordinary enough to be included. This rare old Jamaican rum was a shoo-in and the eager wait for the day of release has finally arrived. Limited to just 110 bottles, it will retail for £500.
Commenting on the releases, Doug McIvor, Spirits Buyer for Berry Bros. & Rudd, said: “Our philosophy when choosing casks for the collection is to provide unparalleled quality; we take immense pride in this. This extraordinary and very limited range will showcase some of the most remarkable expressions we have released to-date.”
The Exceptional Casks Collection will launch from October and is available to purchase from Berry Bros. & Rudd.
