A very fancy packaging job for this limited expression of 24yo single malt from the Fettercairn distillery. Owners Whyte & Mackay clearly have confidence in the brand to be spending this sort of marketing money on a distillery many malt fans had given up on - we wish Fettercairn well with this latest rebirth.

A bottle of 1981 vintage North Port (aka Brechin) from independent bottlers Duncan Taylor. This was released as part of their Rarest of the Rare series, for bottlings from now closed distilleries. North Port closed a couple of years after this was distilled, in 1983, and as such bottlings are becoming increasingly hard to find.
