Commenting on their latest Single Cask releases, Master Distiller Billy Walker, said: “This marvel is an amazing, venerable and exceptionally rare whisky and it is sure to become one of our most sought-after bottlings. We only have a few casks of the legendary 1968 vintage left in our inventory and they are extraordinary survivors from a golden, bygone age of whisky production. Today we are thrilled and delighted to present this remarkable expression in Batch 13 to our customers worldwide.”
He went on to say: “This is what aged sherry-matured whisky is all about gorgeous colouring, luscious fruity aromas, rich sherry and dark chocolate flavours combining brilliantly to create sweet, gutsy and utterly memorable malts."
