Top 10 January drinks launches4th January, 2013 by db_staff
Matured in ex-Bourbon hogshead casks for over 44 years, this highly collectible whisky is one of the rarest expressions of any Lowland single malt. A mere 257 bottles of the Auchentoshan 1966 were laid down following triple distillation in February 1966 in Warehouse Number Three, where temperatures vary by just 12 degrees a year.
Encased in a hand-crafted, individually numbered, aluminium and oak outer case, Auchentoshan 1966 comes with a booklet charting its history. “This is a stunning example of the care, craft and investment we put into our whiskies, that means it can withstand the test of time. Auchentoshan 1966 has matured beautifully – it has aged with a complex character, but keeps its youthful vitality,” says Kirsteen Beeston, head of brands at Morrison Bowmore Distillers. RRP: £4,500
