Tasting Notes

Bottled in 1990 from a single sherry hogshead cask. Bottle number 481 from an edition of 600. From the legendary Moon series of "Animals," single casks. Extremely rare collector's item never before available in the States. Adding more caché to the eminence of this bottling is that it comes from the 1980 vintage, the same year as the founding of Moon Imports revered for bottling some of the most exceptional Scotch Whiskies of this era. This is a phenomenal spirit indeed however please note that their is some natural slight stains to the label due to the years in cellar and the plastic top capsule and original tax stamp have begun to fray. But the fill still sits just above the neck and thw shiky looks every bit as immaculate as the day it was bottled.
