Tasting Notes

Based on the vintage recipe from 1963, this throwback bottling is meant to stand as a timepiece for the era that saw the first glimmers of the single malt category before anyone knew what that was.

You can take this retro bottle up on the roof and can enjoy this throwback any day. Maybe on another Saturday night. As far as I’m concerned, it can be my baby any day. ~Tanya
