1989 Cadenheads Small Batch North British Distillery 24 Year Old Single Grain Scotch Whisky (700ml)
The joys of a well-aged single grain whisky! Admittedly they're not for everyone, but if you can find decades-old examples at reasonable prices, they're almost irresistible. Find one with serious complexity and you'll be hooked. This promises the lot. The North British distillery supplies famous blends such as J&B, Cutty Sark, The Famous Grouse and Johnnie Walker. They never bottle whisky under their own label. So whilst almost any whisky lover would have tried a whisky to which North British has contributed, very few would have had the opportunity to taste it on its own. This example from Cadenheads was distilled in 1989 and bottled in 2014 after maturation in a Bourbon barrel yielding just 240 bottles. We have less than a handful on offer. Notes from Cadenhead's... "Nose Lots of toffee, melted butter, white chocolate and hints of ginger. Palate Thick and chewy vanilla ice cream, some biscuity notes and lots of caramel notes. Finish Following the intense creamy toffee notes more of the spices emerge, particularly ginger and cinnamon with sparkling lemon notes." 46% Alc./Vol.
