1974 Rare Ayrshire (Ladyburn) "K&L Exclusive" 36 Year Old Signatory Single Barrel Cask Strength Lowland Single Malt Whiskey 750ml (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1068059

BACK IN STOCK! 50 more! Absolutely one of top two or three whiskies I've ever had the opportunity to taste. David OG and I knew it wasn't going to be cheap, but we had a duty to bring great whisky back to the states so we couldn't let the price tag stand in our way. Labeled as "Rare Ayrshire" because Signatory cannot disclose the name of the distillery, we're more than happy to let you in on the name of this rarely-seen and long-forgotten single malt. One of the rarest and hard-to-find of distilleries, Ladyburn is a Lowland distillery that operated only between 1966 and 1975, inside the grain distillery of Girvan. The rare 12 year old distillery bottling sells for over $3000 at auction and the name Ladyburn has become synonymous with "cult whisky." Our 36 year old bottling is an orgasm of complexity that should send true whisky geeks into a ferverish frenzy of ecstasy. Brandied fruit on the nose with honey and Cognac-esque aromas seeping into the mix. The palate is light and soft with vanilla, baking spices, and flowers in complete harmony with the natural cask strength proof. A drop of water brings out more of the spice and releases the vanilla into a bowl of fresh cherries that linger long on the finish. Simply amazing whisky that demands the attention of the most serious of drinkers. Classic in every way and worth every penny of the price. Only 80 bottles available from this extremely old and extremely rare cask. -David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer
