1971 Murray McDavid Port Dundas 46 Year Old Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Another auspicious moment for grain whisky: Not quite the oldest, but up there with some of the most venerable Port Dundas bottlings to have ever graced our shelves. Either young or well-aged, output from this long-closed legend can be superlative, ranking among the best grains on the planet. Independents Murray McDavid released this single refill bourbon barrel #14001 in 2018 at a natural strength of 47.7% Alc./Vol. A fraction of the 200 bottle outturn has just arrived in Australia. Given Diageo's official 52 year old commanded $1300 back in 2018, the price of admission remains reasonable. Expect notes of buttery toffee, fruit crumble, nuts and oak spice with a super long, satisfyingly sweet finish. Non chill filtered. Closed distillery / Collectable.
