1979 Rare Malts Selection Coleburn 21 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$999.00 Bottle
  • ABV 59.4%

Part of Diageo's Rare Malts range, this cask strength 1979 vintage is an opportunity to sample single malt from yet another now closed distillery.

Reputedly a long time component of Johnnie Walker Red, Coleburn is off the radar for most malt drinkers - and for good reasons. Established in 1896, it was always intended to be a key producer for blends. Almost its entire output was matured in x-Bourbon barrels. The license to distill at Coleburn was cancelled in 1992 and most available casks have been bottled now. Official distillery releases pretty much don't exist. Independent releases are extremely scarce. Certainly don't expect any more - the distillation equipment has been dismantled and the buildings have been renovated. The current owners, Mark and Dale Winchester, have developed plans for a full conversion of the buildings into a hotel, spa and conference facility.

The distillery name follows from other earlier buildings nearby. A map from around 1860 records a burn running down the hill from the northeast and into the Glen Burn beside what would later become the distillery site.
