1970 Carsebridge (Special Release 2018) 48 Year Old Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (700ml)

SCOTLAND
$1399. 00 Bottle
$16788.00 Dozen
ABV: 43.2%
Of the ten expressions on offer in Diageo's 2018 collection, this one's the oldest. Just 1000 bottles are available worldwide. Sourced from one of Scotland's long lost distilleries, Carsebridge closed in 1983 and was subsequently demolished. Matured in x Bourbon barrels, it arrives with a massive score from whiskyadvocate.com. Just four bottles were allocated to Victoria. We have one only to sell.

Other reviews... Sure, the oldest of this year’s Diageo Special Releases manifests the brown-and-orange world of 1970 incarnate, but it does so in glorious fashion. Golden and warm, dessert-like, with bread-and-butter pudding, spun sugar, plenty of oak character, lavender honey, golden puff pastry, perfumery scents, and the first fruits plucked from the orangerie. Quite simply the grooviest thing to come out of Alloa this year.
