Just being bottled as we speak. grant macpherson emailed me to say....

"Another one to look out for is a Local Barley bottling that is getting bottled last week in January 16Y/O 54.3%, this is an outstanding whisky and limited to around 9000 worldwide. Regarding the 12Y/O Port Pipe bottling - every year I will bottle a single cask for the UK and this is usually around April, no details on this years as yet though…".

This is a fabulous scotch! 


When I first opened it and let it sit for 30min, it was very good, but thought not great. But now 1/3 into the bottle it's very rich and complex. it only gets better and richer with every dram!

Purchased 4 when it first came out, now wanting more!
