Carsebridge Distillery, established in the 1790s, was closed in 1983, yet its increasingly rare whisky lives on. This single grain spirit from the Lowlands has spent nearly half a century in one single American oak cask. Blessed by the angels, this amber nectar has been presented to you at natural strength of 40.9%.
Nose: buttery, caramel sauce, vanilla, dried fruit
Palate: cinnamon rolls, boiled sweets
Finish: long, plums and raisinsbuttery, caramel sauce, vanilla, dried fruit
Such an old and rare cask demands respect. We, at Murray McDavid, guided this whisky from cask to bottle with the grace and expertise the spirit deserved. A triumphant result, emphasising yet again, the importance of time in the maturation of Scotch whisky.
