Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: The Alistair Walker Whisky Company 70cl / 57.0%
Release number 33 is a 2009 Glentauchers, and another first for the Infrequent flyers range.
Distilled in 2009 and aged in a single ruby port hogshead #6254 until it was bottled 11 years later at a natural cask strength of 57.0% with a yield of just 288 bottles.
You won't find many port finish Gentauchers about and this is beautiful and full of dark red fruit and dark chocolate.
