One of the highest ABV bottlings we've ever seen from any bottler. 

From the archives. "Despite its pale colour, this Speyside is heavily-sherried, the first fill of a fino cask. It is extremely pungent without water, which is not surprising, given its strength. It is indeed the highest proof of any whisky we have bottled and will anaestetise your mouth if you try to drink it straight. It is also heavily peated: you will find the peat smoke in your nose and a full, sweet taste; majestic and self-confident. It is inevitably expensive: the duty alone cost us more than a tenner." The original price of this bottle in 1991 was £38.

Although a condition report is normally included in the lot description, we would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids.

If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the link "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen and described.

Please note: due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
