Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: The Alistair Walker Whisky Company 70cl / 52.2%
The oldest bottling in Batch 6 of Alistair Walker's Infrequent Flyers bottlings is a venerable 28-year-old Glen Keith from the 1993 vintage bottled at 52.2% after spending its final days in a rye whiskey barrel.
Glen Keith is one of those distilleries that never seems to catch on, which is remarkable really, as they're rarely anything less than very good - particularly cask strength examples from indie bottlers. We'd wager that this will be terrific stuff.
