Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Duncan Taylor
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.
