Malts of Scotland
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News
A new independent bottler was born a couple of months ago: Malts of Scotland. In March 2009, they released a first range of 11 single cask whiskies (cask strength, no colouring, no chill-filtration) with prices between 40 and 140 euro. They claim to have several hundreds of casks from more than 60 distilleries ageing in their warehouses.
The brand was founded by Thomas Ewers, who has been acquiring interesting casks over the last couple of years and is now releasing them.
I’ll be reviewing most of their current products soon. Some of the highlights in the range:
- Bunnahabhain 1976
- Clynelish 1996
- Glenkinchie 1975
- Macduff 1990
- Port Charlotte 2001 (fully sherry matured)
