2012 Claxton's Warehouse No.8 Balmenach 9 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Balmenach is presently owned by Inver House Distillers who have no immediate plans to release it as an official distillery bottling. According to one report, "The reason for this is that the make – whose style is unusual these days – is too highly-prized as fillings for blends, both by Inver House and other firms." Which makes this indie edition all the more special. Claxton's add further interest by maturing a nine year old in an x Tawny Port octave. Once again the smaller cask volume results in a tiny outturn, this time just 70 bottles. 56.2% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
