In the past six months, we have released seven casks and only one person, me, has tried them all! That was until a savvy blogger managed to get his hands on samples from each cask!

“a distinctive character with a very enjoyable nose”
All the releases were uniquely numbered and presented in the Lady of the Glen glass etched bottles, so if you managed to snag a bottle you’ll be excited to know that they are almost completely unavailable, there is one bottle of Miltonduff left on Ladyoftheglen.com and I have heard Hard to Find Whisky, Luvians in Fife and Jeffrey Street in Edinburgh have a few bottles of the other releases remaining.
There you have it a solid performance from a generation of casks born in the era of Brit-Pop, New Labour and the same decade the Scotland was in the World Cup and won the five nations!
