A 42-year-old single cask from an undisclosed Speyside distillery, bottled by Antique Lions Of Whisky – a series which is gorgeous is both appearance and flavour.
This was distilled in 1975 at an undisclosed Speyside distillery and matured in a fino sherry cask. Bottled in 2017, there are just 378 bottles worldwide.
This series of undisclosed Speysiders that have appeared in the Antique series and The Whisky Agency’s tenth anniversary series have been some of the best ‘old’ whiskies we’ve tried in the past few years, so this bottle arrives with great expectations.
A very special release of whisky that created quite a stir when they were first released in Europe in 2018, the ‘Savannah’ series is the third release from Antique Lions Of Whisky. The bottles and presentation boxes feature scenes of exotic animals.
The indie bottler was formed by Jens Drewitz of Germany’s Sansibar alongside Italian whisky merchants Max Righi (Silver Seal) and Diego Sandrin (Whisky Antique).
This release is a homage to the Moon Import bottlings prominent in Europe in the ‘90s and ‘00s. Often beautifully stylised, this homage series has some of the best packaging we’ve ever seen.
The whiskies have been selected to have an ‘old world European’ style, so expect them to be soft, elegant and fruity with fantastic poise.
Having secured and presented the Birds series in 2017 and the Butterfly series in 2018, we are proud to have again secured a small allocation from the Savannah series.
