64 Year Old
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
In 1937, cask 843 was filled with spirit from the stills at The Glenfiddich distillery in Dufftown and laid down in a dark, damp dunnage warehouse to mature and develop. It was discovered to be an unusually slow-maturing whisky and over its life ten consecutive warehouse masters patiently watched over cask 843 and frequently nosed and tasted the whisky, noting its development. After 64 years, in October 2001, Glenfiddich's Malt Master David Stewart declared that cask 843 was finally ready to be bottled. Just 61 bottles were left in the cask.

This whisky is definitely worth the £17,000. I found it very good to sell at auction even after buying it here. It brought headlines just look at The Times 2006-04-23. The whisky brought back very happy teenage memories for me. It reminded me of when I would sneak into my fathers cellar and steal the other bottles of whiskey that we kept cached, Oh the memories. Truly, Arthur Thomas Timothy Kennedy (no relation to the former president, if only ;)
Not bad for a £17,000 bottle of whisky. I'm not sure how to describe it yet, I've only had two glasses. My Initial reaction is that it's very woody, definitely a taste to acquire and savour, but honestly I've had better.
