This peculiar Indie bottling comes from the North British distillery, located just outside of Edinburgh. The distillery supplies famous blends such as J&B, Cutty Sark, The Famous Grouse and Johnnie Walker. North British 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.

Tasting note: Matured in a Bourbon barrel. Pretty polished brass colour. Matchbox, oak shavings, empty barrels, then richer scents of fresh-baked sponge cake and custard before the bouquet dries repeating the woody / fresh-sawn oak notes. Evocative of young column still rum, this offers a lush, vanilla-soaked mouthfeel with notes of creamy soda, coffee flavoured milk and wood spices and an extended finish, achieving a fine balance between sweetness and vibrancy. 52.9% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. 146 bottles.
