Kinclaith 40 YO 1969

Single malt whisky from Kinclaith is extremely rare and highly sought after. Built to provide malt whisky for the Long John blend, the distillery was only in operation for 18 years, between 1957 an 1975, before being demolished in 1982.

Located at the site of Strathclyde grain distillery, which still operates today, Kinclaith was the last malt distillery built in Glasgow. Aged for an extraordinary 40 years in cask 301445, only 217 bottles of this unbelievably rare whisky are available, bottled by Signatory as part of their Cask Strength Collection.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Deep malt and tobacco. Kiwi fruit, citrus and crème anglaise.

Palate Dark, creamy oak and buttered toast, hints of cardamom, marmalade and plum.

Finish Long, toasty wood chips, sarsaparilla, anise.

Overall Sensational aged whisky from this closed lowland distillery. A real rarity.

Ultra Smooth w/ Warm & Complex Flavors That Lingered Beautifully
Incredible! My father-in-law and I enjoyed this tonight. The smallest sip filled your mouth with complex notes of seemingly sweet and warm wood. The entire drink smooth and rich, lingering comfortably in you mouth long after sipping. Really the most amazing Scotch either of us have had. (I wonder what drink the person below me had - it was truly nothing like he described).

Like Pea Soup
It's okay. Tasted a bit like peas. Maybe with a bit of sweet corn?
