Best Expensive Scotch Whisky You've Never Heard Of
A blend of two very old (40 and 25 years at least) whiskies from mothballed, or ghost, Lowland distilleries, Ladyburn and Interleven, owned by William Grant. Very pale color, almost Sancerre, and a dry, delicate, heathery nose are the first impressions. After 10 minutes in the glass a malty, fruity sweetness emerged and shows just how appealing the under-rated Lowland malts are amidst all the show-off peat and sherry products of their more northerly and westerly compatriots.
