CALEDONIAN-GRAIN(now closed) 40 YO


Distillery:  CALEDONIAN
Distillation Date: 1976
Age (years old): 40
ABV:  55,1%
Bottling Date Year: 2016
   An independent single grain Scotch whisky from the sadly shut Caledonian distillery! This was aged in a single refill hogshead cask for 40 years, from April 1976 to June 2016, before being bottled by Douglas Laing for the Xtra Old Particular range. 291 bottles were produced.
Nose: Classic vanilla roundness up front, followed by sweet spices and a splash of orange.
Palate: Rich, full-bodied vanilla is clearly the star of the show here.
Finish: Rather long indeed. The sweetness of the citrus lasts right to the end.
