A luscious 29-year-old blended Scotch from independent bottlers North Star.
This provides an exceptional opportunity to taste such an old whisky without the price tag. All the components of this blend were distilled in 1989, with 1,000 bottles bottled in 2019 at 45.5%.
Matured in a mixture of European and American oak, this is smooth and rich, with a far whack of that old school sherry-cask complexity.
North Star is a Glasgow-based independent bottler run by Iain Croucher, who has quickly set himself up as one of the most exciting young bottlers from Scotland. All their whiskies are natural colour and un-chill filtered.
