St Magdalene 20 Year Old (100 Years Of Waterloo Street)
The Waterloo St. bottling was distributed to Diageo engineering staff and VIPs in 1998 in celebration of 100 years at Ainslie & Heilbron's buildings at 64 Waterloo Street in Glasgow.
This bottle was filled from a refill European Oak Cask that was laid down at St Magdalene Distillery, Linlithgow on 31st March 1978.
The cask contained 346.2 original litres of alcohol at a filling strength of 68.8% by volume. Bottling strength is 62.7%.
The name derives from the land known at St Magdalene's Cross, but the specific site of the distillery is Linlithgow, an ancient town with a lovely loch and a ruined palace, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scot's. St Magdalene's distillery is thought to have been founded in the early 1800's and became the area's principal malt distillery after a multiple merger in 1914. It closed permanently in 1983.
This 20-year-old malt whisky has a round aroma with a touch of smoke, full bodied, smooth with a ripe finish and much character, an after dinner malt.
Very rare bottle in excellent condition celebrating 100 years of Waterloo Street Glasgow (1898-1998) Engineering.
