Hi
I am wondering if anyone has heard of a Clan Campbell whiskey that comes in a gold box with "Duke of Argyll" (as well as a graphic of his signature in red) printed on it. I don't recall exactly how old it is, but it is probably very old at this point, as it was given as a gift some 15 to 20 years ago.

Any info about this, or even a hint as to where I could find more information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Must have been a limited Edition from Campbell Distillers, and later they where taken over by Pernod Ricard. I believe there's some amount of Edradour in it. It's a quite nice blend. Does your edition give an age statement? I think if you are a collector, then save it, if you are a true connoisseur, then just open the bottle...

Thanks Erik.

Sorry, I did not have all the information as of my last post (I am enquiring for my girlfriends father who has not been able to find any information about it).

The full text on the bottle/box states:
Legendary
