Balvenie have a proud history of producing some serious high end whiskies; although the manner in which they have done so over the years has been far more tasteful and subtle than many other distilleries - even including their sibling Glenfiddich. This 1963 50 year old was matured solely in a European oak hogshead and bottled in 2014 at 45.9% with an outturn of just 128 bottles. Balvenie can withstand extremely long periods of maturation and show beautifully at such ages so this should be utterly sublime whisky. Not to mention the rather stunning presentation and elegant simplicity of the bottle itself. All in a pretty special bottling.
This white label series of Talisker 'Pure Malt' ran from the 1950s throughout the 1960s and examples of it are now extremely scarce and desirable. The majority that we know of are bottled at 80 proof or 75 proof and are utterly incredible whiskies. So it makes this version - bottled at 100 proof - something of an uber-rarity. Bottled around 1960 with a filling level still comfortably into the neck and remarkably well preserved label and capsule; this is the sort of bottling that most of us dream about finding. Basically it is young, cask strength Talisker distilled sometime in the late 1940s/early 1950s. How often do you get the chance to acquire such a historic and incredible spirit...
