60 Year Old Speyside
Our award-winning Secret Bottlings Series has raised the bar yet again with this extraordinary 60 (!) year old single malt Scotch whisky from a famous Speyside distillery. Our oldest bottling to date and one of the oldest whisky releases in history.
By not revealing the name of the distillery, we're able to offer this incredibly well-aged whisky from some of the finest stock for a fraction of the price that a release like this would usually command. In fact, it's an order of magnitude (or two) more reasonable than releases of a similar age, which now carry 5 or even 6 figure price tags! What you're paying for with Master of Malt 60 Year Old Speyside, of course, is the important bit - the liquid itself.
Nose: Beautiful malt to the fore, with a sublime backing of nutmeg, cocoa butter and raisin. Gentle waves of soft white grapes, custard apples and golden syrup. Astonishingly refined oaken notes.
Palate: Creamy, mouth-filling palate entry delivering a touch of chocolate and ground allspice. Quite tropical too - there’s a note of coconut, perhaps mango. An ethereal high-note akin to tomato stems. With time, it becomes quite herbal, with a potpourri-like character, sitting very nicely atop a solid core of rich, thick malt.
Finish: A long, elegant finish, trailing off gracefully with pipe tobacco, molasses and dried herbs. A slice of tangy green apple lingers.
Absalobtly a cracker!
I don't know if master of malt will let me tell you all this a 60 year old from Glenfarclas and master of malt have nailed it big time. This way Master of malt won't get into trouble so as a good and loyal customer of master of malt's I can tell you this is a cracker of a gem and I personnly would value this around £2500.00 so snap it up why you can because this is a deal you are not likely to find anywhere else for such a class malt from a top notch distillery !

a grand for a cask strength 60 year old, from this distillery seeing as younger ones have gone for 20 times that, bargain. Clue: starts with glen, ends with las. If my pockets were deep enough this would be a must have.

Thank god for drams
How much are you paid for telling such a noncense?

I’ve been fortunate enough to sample several whiskies in the 50 years plus bracket over the last couple of decades so when I saw samples of this were available I couldn’t not order one.
I’m so glad I did, even at fifty quid a pop it’s worth it – you just can’t get whisky like this for the kind of money they are asking, it’s ridiculous. I’m pretty sure I know where it’s from as well because the flavour profile is so reminiscent of many of the older malts I’ve tried from that distillery, but this expression is elegance personified – it is certainly one of if not the finest whisky I have ever had.
As I have a significant birthday approaching my wife has been left several hints about what I would like as a present!

As with all our other Secret Bottlings, we don't reveal the number of bottles in each release (or indeed if they are single cask) as this would in many cases give clues as to the type of cask, and potentially point at a particular distillery.
We never Chill-Filter, or add Caramel, so those two are safe.
Can't tell you if it's cask strength or not, but I will say that our preference is never to bottle below 43%abv where possible...

Affordable?? AT £999.95 Are you having a laugh??..And not revealing the name of the distillery?? I'll bet is from a Crappymore or something like that!
