Glenlochy 1979 Rare Old Bottling Note

This single malt whisky was distilled at the now demolished Glenlochy in 1979. Located in Fort William, the distillery would close just 4 years later. This rare independent release from Gordon & MacPhail was bottled in 2012 after a maturation period of over three decades spent in a refill sherry hogshead.

Palate: Wood chips on a hot summer's day. Salted and peppered buttery oak.

Finish: Slightly smoky with a little fresh sea breeze.

Overall: A rare single malt from this closed Highland distillery.

Best Whisky Tasted

I am not a whisky taster, but it was the best whisky I had for a long time. I tasted this in The Grog & Gruel, Fort William. Its soft taste and superior feel.

I really recommend people to go for this.
