Caledonian 'Xtra Old Particular' 1976 / 40 years old 55.1%
Product Description
This 40 year old whisky comes from the Caledonian distillery which was at one time one of the largest grain whisky producers in Scotland. Situated in Edinburgh, Caledonian closed in the late 1980's and there have been very few bottlings of its whisky, this being only the second we have had in our store. The tasting notes from Fred Laing, owner of Douglas Laing & Co, speaks of a classic aged grain whisky - sweet and distinctly spiced, with maple syrup, sugary sweets and lashings of vanilla throughout. There is a corn-y quality to the taste, described as being 'mature Americana', with all of these flavours coming together in harmony. An exceptionally rare bottle of Scotland's liquid history.
