1990 Girvan 20 Year Old K&L Exclusive Sovereign Single Barrel Cask Strength Grain Whisky 750ml

SKU #1086949

The home of the old Ladyburn distillery, this is the perfect sister bottle to our "Rare Ayrshire" cask (which unfortunately is now sold out). Girvan once housed the now defunct Ladyburn, but was more known for its role in creating the Black Barrel brand available in Scandinavia and Latin America. This is another whopper of a whisky that is difficult to describe. Dry, herbal, grainy on the nose, but the palate is expressive and clean, loaded with vanilla and oak on the front end, but finishing dry with apples and pears in a fruity flurry of flavor. So much fun, but more for the experienced drinker than the novice. We loved the complexity of this whisky, but were very afraid about consumer interest due to its esoteric character. When we learned that we could work with an importer of our choice, we were able to negociate an amazing price making this deal a no-brainer. Other prices on Girvan of this age (if you can even find a bottle) fester around the $100+ range, making our cask the equivalent of a closeout bargain. David OG and I felt a duty to import this barrel for the super whisky geeks out there, those who are never satisfied with the limited selection of most stores--the uber-curious, adventurous whisky connoisseurs everywhere. Compass Box's John Glaser told us we were making him proud! (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

Beautiful soft and sweet aromas are a welcome greeting from this interesting and enjoyable grain whiskey. With a splash of water the Girvan opens up and is soft and round in the mouth. It is medium bodied and very easy to drink.

Wahoo- Falling in love again! I'm a big fan of the Faultline Littlemill 21, and I totally dorked out on how amazing the Girvan is! Soft, supple fruits with vanilla & spice, caramelly goodness, easy to drink and super affordable- particularly for a geeky unmalted cereal grain scotch like this one! Get some while you can!
