A bold 28-year-old blended malt from independent bottlers North Star.
As with all the Vega releases, this provides an exceptional opportunity to taste such an old malt whisky without the price tag.
The components of this blend were distilled in September 1990, bottled February 2019 as a 29-year-old with 800 bottles at 46.7%.
Matured in a mixture of European and American oak, this has some very familiar notes of rich sweetness from a household-name producer.
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.
