Ladyburn 40YO 1974 #74

It's incredibly rare to see a bottling of Ladyburn single malt Scotch whisky, seeing as the distillery was closed in 1975 after only being founded on the Girvan grain distillery site nine years prior. Nevertheless, some of its whisky makes its way to market, much to the delight of collectors and whisky historians everywhere. This single cask whisky was distilled in November 1974, matured in a first fill bourbon cask and bottled in November 2014, many years after the distillery fell silent.

Reviews for Ladyburn 40 Year Old 1974 (cask 74) - Private Cask Collection (William Grant & Sons)
A rare treat 40 years young
Rich notes of prunes & dates greet the nose with oily orange, dark chocolate, floral and waxy/leathery notes. Add in some aromatic sandalwood spiced oak & rum & raisin fudge. A big & oily delivery with bold dark chocolate, prunes in cognac, toasted oak, liqueur orange, new leather, floral spice, firm oak, apricot, caramelised peach & fig jam. The finish has chelate bitters, waxy orange, toasted vanillin oak and more of that boozy soaked prune/ date nuance. Falls fairly short of true greatness but this has plenty to enjoy if you can afford the price tag! The Whisky Flaneur
