1999 Gordon & Macphail Connoisseurs Choice Balmenach Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$99.99 Bottle
  • ABV 43%

Situated in the district of Cromdale on the banks of the River Spey the Balmenach distillery stands beneath the nearby hill of Tom Lethendry where the Jacobites were defeated in the Battle of Cromdale in 1690. It is one of the earliest distilleries sanctioned as a result of the Excise Act 1823. In 1897 the Balmenach was purchased by Glenlivet and was served by its own railway branch off the Strathspey Railway until 1969. The distillery closed in 1941 and re-opened in 1947, following expansion of its facilities. Presently it is owned by Inver House Distillers Limited.

Unpeated malt is sourced from independent maltsters with maturation taking place mainly in refill US hogsheads and some Spanish oak. The house style tends towards a vegetal, oily, full bodied dram. It is not currently bottled by its present custodians and has only rarely found its way into independent bottlings such as this 1999 edition from Gordon & MacPhail. 43% Alc./Vol.
