From the archives. "A shot fired among conifers. This was the first distillery to be granted a Royal Warrant (by William IV), and is found on the Cawdor Estate near Nairn. It is only bottled by its proprietor in small quantities. In Crow, Ted Hughes writes about "The after-rale of a shot fired among conifers in rainy twilight" This captures it. The first nose is vaguely of gun-smoke (with some liquorice), and with water this becomes the steely smell of shot-gun barrels. The flavour is sweet overall but with attractive acidity and good balance of primary tastes. Unusual and interesting. Go easy on the water." The original price for this bottle in 1997 was £47.

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.
