Where have you been in 1957? Probably the vast majority of today’s whisky connoisseurs didn’t arrive to our planet yet but despite Soviet’s test of H-Bomb the world seemed to be fairly safe.
Albert Camus was just awarded with the Nobel Prize in literature (the second youngest recipient in history after Rudyard Kipling) and first Nuclear Reactor plant opened for production of electricity i Pennsylvania. Meanwhile Glen Garioch Distillery was still operating as part of DCL and will be producing rather peaty whisky until decommissioning in 1968.
We are proud to present an extremely rare bottling from the Eastern Highland distillery – Glen Garioch distilled in 1957 and bottled in 1977 by William Cadenhead Ltd., the Scottish oldest independent bottling whisky company. Founded in 1842 by George Duncan it was acquired by J&A Mitchell & Co. of Springbank fame in 1972.
We cannot, although we would love to, share tasting notes of this expression from very simple yet painful reason – it is the only bottle in our collection and chances acquiring another one are close to zero.
