The oldest bottling in the 2018 edition of Diageo's Special Releases and the sole grain whisky entry: a 48 year old from closed Carsebridge distillery – it closed back in 1983. This is a classic old grain whisky, matured in refill American-oak hogsheads to ensure that the spirit wasn't overwhelmed by wood influence.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Portuguese custard tarts, crystallised honey, blackcurrants and model glue. Thick vanilla and toffee spread across a freshly varnished table.

    Palate: Sugar syrup and fudge, lime and vanilla cream. Full-strength Ribena follows, along with developing notes of damp leaves and forest floors.

    Finish: Blackcurrants hang around, slowly facing to reveal caramel, brown sugar and a touch of varnish.

    Comment: A fine balance of the elegant dustiness and rancio typical of old grain against rich fruit and more youthful brown sugar and toffee notes.
