Bottles end year on a high

Postby Kate » Wed Feb 25, 2004 2:29 pm

London-based The Whisky Exchange says that two of its most special 2003 releases have been selling well.
A Glenfiddich bottling released to mark the 50th anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953 and a Dunglas 1967 ‘Experimental Lowland malt’ have both attracted interest from serious collectors and casual purchasers alike, reports the distributor.
The Glenfiddich is a single cask bottling from a 1974 refill sherry butt and is described as having ‘velvety and rich sherried creaminess with hints of spice, chocolate and slightly peaty finish’. It has an ABV of 48.9% and retails at £249.
The Dunglas was distilled from unpeated malt at the Littlemill distillery in 1967. It was intended for blending purposes only. Only 102 bottles existed, no other casks are known to exist, and it was only made in 1967.
It retails for £699.
