North Star Port Dundas 12 Year Old Single Grain Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Lowlands, SCOTLAND
$175. 00 Bottle
$2100.00 Dozen
ABV: 58.8%
Based in Glasgow, the historic Port Dundas distillery closed after Diageo moved the majority of its grain whisky production to Cameronbridge. It traditionally contributed to blends, including Bell's, Black & White, Haig, J&B, Johnnie Walker, Vat 69 and White Horse. This is a fabulous example from indie bottlers, "North Star", bottled at just the right strength.

Tasting note: Drawn from a Bourbon hogshead. Flawless bright gold, beams from the glass. A complex and shifting bouquet hinting at dried grass, rice crackers and pepper along with suggestions of semi ripe banana, dried apricot, Indian spices and liquorice root. Surprisingly light on its feet. Waxy, oily, grain and toasted marshmallow flavours arrive with a mild flare of alcohol. Trace anise rounds off a prolonged, poised finish. The perfect opportunity to experience Port Dundas. 58.8% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. Approx. 300 bottles.
