1997 Mortlach 18 Year Old Chieftain's Single Barrel "PX Finish" Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1239412

For years Chieftain's was one of our most trusted and sought-after independent single malt labels, owned by the Ian MacLeod Company. We purchased casks directly from their warehouse outside of Edinburgh and some of our most legendary bottlings (Port Ellen, Brora, old Mortlach) have been from their incredible stocks. But a few years back the supply chain began to get a bit tight and the company decided to invest in production, purchasing the Tamdhu and Glengoyne distilleries respectively. We saw few Chieftain's selections after that point and had all but given up on the brand. Now, however, we're happy to announce the return of new single cask Chieftain's expressions, in dashing form no less. This PX sherry-finished wonder of a whisky should be a HUGE hit among fans of our legendary 22 year old cask of Mortlach we bought from Chieftain's years ago. This time around we have a standard 46% ABV and a sherry-finish rather than a full-termer, but don't let that hold you back. This malt has everything you love about Mortlach on full display. Rich layers of cakebread and toffee coat the palate, subtle sweetness and spice coat the finish, and the essence of all that goodness lingers long on the tongue after the whisky goes down. If we had been offered exclusivity on this cask, we would have taken it. Unfortunately, we'll have to share this one with the general American market. Grab it while it's here.
