Description

A single cask 1988 vintage distilled at the Glen Moray distillery and release as part of the spectacular Antique Lions Of Whisky series.

Built in 1958, Tormore is a relatively young distillery by Scottish standards. Its main duty is to provide spirits for the Chivas Regal and Long John blends (it is owned by Chivas Brothers) and is rarely seen as a single malt, although a few independent bottlings have appeared in recent years.

Independent Tormore’s have an ability to re-create the ‘old-timey’ Scotch flavours, with floral rose, old oak and exotic spices. This is a spirit-driven expression from the distillery, with a thick texture and long finish.

A very special release of whisky that created quite a stir when they were released in Europe earlier this year, the ‘Birds’ series is the first release from Antique Lions Of Spirit. The indie bottler was formed by Jens Drewitz of Germany’s Sansibar alongside Italian whisky merchants Max Righi (Silver Seal) and Diego Sandrin (Whisky Antique).

This release is a homage to the Moon Import bottlings prominent in Europe in the ‘90s and ‘00s. Often beautifully stylised, this homage series has some of the best packaging we’ve ever seen.

The whiskies have been selected to have an ‘old world European’ style, so expect them to be soft, elegant and fruity with fantastic poise.

There are less than 300 bottles of each of the expressions in this first Antique Lions Of Whisky ‘The Birds’ and even less of complete sets. The Oak Barrel will be tasting the entire set of the whiskies at an event Tuesday 17 October. Details here.

Un-chill filtered and with no added colouring.
