1979 Girvan 38 Years (IB: Hunter Laing) The First Edition, Single Grain, South Ayrshire, 50.3% 70cl
The First Editions range of single barrel expressions is always released at natural cask strength, and of course without colouring or chill filtration.
As the name may suggest, each cask is carefully selected to evoke the qualities of a rare literary volume – those of character and collectability. Colour-coding on the labels denotes the particular regions the whiskies themselves are from and each bottle is individually numbered and presented in a gift tube. A “First Editions” bottling without doubt makes a valuable addition to anyone’s whisky library.
38 year old single grain from Girvan, matured in a single refill hogshead cask. It was distilled in 1979.
Nose: Resinous pine, treacle tart, sponge cake and lime peel.
Palate: Creamy vanilla and peach arrive first, followed shortly by peppercorn and cinnamon.
