This exceptionally rare 32 year old Highland single malt was laid down at the Glenury distillery in November 1968 and bottled by Douglas Laing & Co. for their classic Old Malt Cask range in February 2001.
Charged from a single sherry sherry hogshead and bottled at a natural cask strength 49.4% ABV, this is one of only 258 bottles from another of Scotlands long lost distilleries, with the Glenury (AKA Glenury Royal) site closing its doors for the final time in 1985. WhiskyFun later reviewed and awarded this rarity a big 90 points!
The Old Malt Cask range was first released in 1999 by Douglas Laing & Co. Ltd. Always single cask and (almost always) bottled at 50% ABV, there have been some astounding examples of vintage and aged whisky in this series. The OMC range followed the Hunter side of the Laing clan when the company split in 2013.
Note: Whilst the carton is showing signs of wear and tear, the bottle is in mint condition - see image for detail.
