12th Release

It is with great pleasure to announce another release of a very old whisky in the line-up of my classic label. This is a Scotch single malt whisky distilled in the year 1973 and bottled recently at 47.8% in a fino cask. It will be my 2nd bottling of a 43 year old whisky after bottling a 43-year-old Ben Nevis two years ago.

This is an undisclosed distillery bottling which I bought from a whisky broker and no matter what I did or how I begged, no information was spared. However, what we did know is that this is a superb drinking whisky from the region of Speyside. There are probably not so many of these old casks left and I was lucky to come across this particular cask which I jumped onto the opportunity to grab it while I still can.

I was really happy to be able to share it first with a group of friends and whisky lovers during our recent trip to Orkney. I remembered opening this bottle first at Dornoch Castle Hotel and then taking some nice shots of it at the Yesnaby cliffs. What a place and company to enjoy a good dram! And in less than a month, my bottle was almost empty!

Therefore, I would like to launch this bottling today before I start to drinking them all! The tasting notes will follow as I have been too busy to focus and to write the notes. If you are interested, please send me an email at
