Cask numbers 23404, 23405 and 23406 have been lying peacefully in Warehouse 6 since being filled on November 20, 1972, gently and slowly maturing the precious spirit within. Over time – indeed over four decades of watchful waiting by the casks’ custodians – the spirit has given way to the angels who have claimed more than their fair share.
Having waited patiently for the perfect moment to catch this spirit in its prime, our distillery men have captured the heart of the distillery in this bottling.
