An incredibly rare experimental malt from the folks at now closed Littlemill. They had an adjustable rectifier attached to their stills which gave them the ability to produce a number of different distillates. Dunglass, named Dunglas here due to someone not finishing the stencilling on the cask, is an oily, lightly peated spirit that has not been produced again.
