Signatory (distilled at Kinclaith), Cask #301446, 35 year old, 1969 vintage, 51.3%

Price: $1700.00 Issue: Summer 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

This Lowland distillery only operated from 1957-1975. Huge bourbon impact on the nose and palate, along with vanilla, coconut, stewed fruit, and dried wood spice -- especially on the finish, with lingering notes of anise, espresso, very dark chocolate, and charcoal. A taste of history for sure, but this is a whisky that never was meant to be aged this long.
