The Clydesdale

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Clydesdale whiskyClydesdale is an independent bottler with a full range of whisky brands and offices in the UK and Sweden. It started in 1998, but it became better known after a redesign and new marketing strategy in 2006.

 

The ClydesdaleThe casks are being selected by Robin Tucek, the man behind the Blackadder label (mostly known for the Raw Cask series in which burnt sediments of the cask are found in the bottle). Clydesdale whiskies are always single casks at cask strength, un-chill-filtered and uncoloured. That’s the way we like it!

Tomorrow I’ll review the Glen Albyn 33 yo 1974/2008 cask #0016/1601 that won a silver medal in the 2008 Malt Maniacs Awards.

    Good afternoon,
    I am a Kilchoman collector from the Netherlands and heard that there were two new spirit bottlings for Clydesdale from Kilchoman. Is that correct? And if so, is it possible to buy those bottles? It would be great!
    Best regards from the Netherlands,

  • Tony: Well the 1401 batch 8 could be found easily in most places for £200 - indeed I got one for £180 with a discount. The £225 price was a bit high and

  • Sam: Nicely written notes, not rated this myself yet. Just to confirm, it's nowhere near a 40% price rise though. The last 1401 released in the UK was at
