Càrn Mòr’s Family Reserve range, will include extremely limited and rare single casks, with each one being hand-selected individually by either Brian or Jamie Morrison from their own collection.

Each bottle will be displayed within a wooden presentation case with a commemorative plaque, with the family’s connection to this cask and their personal memories of the distillery displayed on a personally signed letter inside the box.

Càrn Mòr - Family Reserve: 1988 Glen Garioch, is said to deliver notes of ripe juicy peaches, orange peel and treacle on the nose, followed by notes of herbs, orchard fruits and honey drops on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Brian Morrison, said: “This particular cask was selected initially for its outstanding spirit quality but also it very much reflects the style of which Glen Garioch was distilled in the eighties given we were malting and peating our own barley. A rarity amongst distilleries in those days. At that time the Morrison family-owned Glen Garioch so it is one distillery that we have a very personal connection to.”

Limited to 108 bottles, Càrn Mòr - Family Reserve: 1988 Glen Garioch, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £2895.00.
