1969 Caperdonich 50 Year Old "Rarest Of The Rare by Duncan Taylor" Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

SKU #1628999

Scotch Whisky Company , Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky, has released two very special whiskies as part of their “Rarest of the Rare” portfolio, in time for the Nth Ultimate Whisky Experience Show at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, at the end of April. Dating back to 1969, the launch of a Kinclaith 51-year-old and Caperdonich 50-year-old form part of a collection of rare whisky casks from closed distilleries, that Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky has matured in warehouse for half a century. Both whiskies have notable histories; Kinclaith’s transitory existence ended in 1975 and production of Caperdonich from Rothes finished in 2002. These sought after whiskies are rarely released and it’s the first time that the Aberdeenshire bottler has launched drams dating back over 50 years. Caperdonich’s conception dates back to 1898. Mothballed for approximately six decades Caperdonich’s production was reinstated in 1965 to fulfil demand for Glen Grant, culminating in the expansion of the Caperdonich distillery site in 1967. The new pot stills were steam heated which was a very modern technology at the time and the whisky was given a new appellation in 1966, Caperdonich. The name was chosen after its water source. A limited release of less than 100 handcrafted glass decanters is available of each whisky worldwide. The bottles will be individually numbered and engraved as well as housed in a beautiful lockable framed box, inside a brushed stainless steel carry case.
