Glen Flagler 1973 - 2003 Cask Strength Limited Edition
An ultra-rare bottling from silent distillery Glen Flagler.
Having started out in life as a paper mill, Glen Flagler was purchased and transformed in 1965 into Moffat Distillery, also home to the Garnheath and Killyloch stills.
Glen Flagler fell silent in 1986, however, several casks were set aside and warehoused until they were judged to be at their best for release by the Master Blender. This bottling is a result of the vatting of these casks - the last 5 of the proprietary stock available. The whisky has been bottled at natural cask strength and unchill-filtered to allow the genuine characteristics of this stunning malt to be enjoyed.
As Red Rum went on to win the Grand National at Aintree, the Hogshead casks were being filled and locked away to be opened 29 years later.
Inver House had their own malting's at this time which enabled them to vary the degree of peating in their malts. Glen Flagler is a lightly peated and for a Lowland Malt, has a surprisingly Speyside character. Glen Flagler is one of the cleanest and softest single malts to be bottled at this age. An elegant and fruity malt with a complex taste. A subtle hint of smokiness with a note of vanilla, giving a long, clean finish.
