This whisky sat in a cask [an inert cask from memory] in the distillery shop for a number of years [very possibly because of the hefty price tag]. Both Whiskybase entries list the number of bottles from this cask as 258. I guess that number could only have been ascertained by the person/persons who were there when the cask was finally drained.
N: More than 25 years in a cask and there’s no sign of woodiness or a tannic attack. Lovely stuff.
T: This might be an old boy in numbers terms but it’s still fully loaded, check the abv! It didn’t seem to like water too much but I didn’t have the opportunity to experiment fully.
F: Peanut-y again, like with the 1976 vintage. No peanuts in my diet atm so maybe it’s a Tomatin trait?
C: Another good showcase for the spirit and the distillery profile. We all wanted to take home a special souvenir but at £250, I’m more than satisfied with my 1976 vintage sample.
