After nearly six decades maturing in its hogshead cask, The North British 58 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of butterscotch, caramelised pineapple and coconut on the nose, with a palate full of toasted oak, cinnamon and cloves; leading to a spiced toffee and molasses finish.

The packaging of the whisky has been carefully crafted to reflect the quality, rarity and age of the whisky. Each bottle is accompanied by a stitched booklet which has been hand signed and individually numbered by Alan Kilpatrick, the distillery’s Managing Director.

Commenting on the release, Fred Laing, Chairman at Douglas Laing, said: “We are excited to be working with North British on such a special release. As a family, we have long been single grain enthusiasts and as a business, we have equally been long term proponents of the single grain category - the fit is ideal. Handling the sales and marketing for such an exceptional spirit is both an honour and a great personal pleasure, such is its quality.”

Limited to just 222 bottles, The North British 58 Year Old – Incorporation Edition, will be available next month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £1,700,00.
