Inchgower 1976 27 Years – Rare Malts Selection
The “Rare Malts Selection” is a series of single malt whiskies from casks of closed distilleries or from distilleries that do not market bottlings independently. These include Rosebank, Linkwood and Port Ellen, for example. They are normally cask strength bottlings that were distilled in the 1960s, 1970s or early 1980s and laid down to mature for at least 18 years. The series appeared from around 1995 to 2005 and was marketed by independent bottler Diageo. The series has now been discontinued, being replaced by the annual “Special Releases”. The individual Rare Malt bottlings are highly sought after by collectors.
Inchgower is located at the mouth of the River Spey near the town of Buckie and was opened in 1871. The distillery is now part of Diageo. Most of the production is used for blends – only about 1% goes into producing single malts. This whisky from the Rare Malts Selection is therefore a real rarity.
