Delnabo Whisky

Postby davequa » Tue Nov 08, 2011 2:51 pm

I've just come across a miniature of Delnabo malt whisky and I can't find out anything about it. I know the Delnabo distillery ceased to exist somewhere around 1858 so I guess this whisky does not originate from that distillery
The label simply says" The Delnabo Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, 12 years old, Bottle No: 308"
Any information as to where this whisky was produced would be appreciated

i believe it was bottled by gordon currie when he was at the was the owner of the whisky castle in tomintoul

i believe glenlivet were at delnabo many years ago not 100% sure but think it is correct
gordon wouldnt tell me what distillery it was from

i hope this helps

Thanks Richard - sheds some light. Do you know if it is meant to be a 'replica' of the origina; Delnabo whisky in terms of style or have they just used the name

im not sure but i will be speaking to gordon some time soon probaly early december so you might have to wait

gordon had hes own casks bottled so its not one of them as the labels different

it might have just been sold by him for somebody else

if i find anything out i will let you know
