Bottled in July 2010, the ten are all  cask strength, natural colour and non chill-filtered. They are individually numbered and presented in a gift tube.

    Tasted some of these during the Witch in Den Haag. The 1979 truly was an excellent malt, looking at the the fruity/vanilla side of Benriach.

    In the UK you can probably buy them in the next two weeks. In the rest of the world, it usually takes a bit longer. In Belgium, I guess they won’t be widely available until the GlenDronach cask in a van tour.
