I'm excited to announce some of the beauties soon to be arriving on our shores to Australia (on their way to the UK port as I type). I'll keep posting weekly until they arrive (expected in mid-August 2020, in time for Fathers day) just to keep appetites whet.
The first is a range of new Carn Mor Scotch Malt Whiskies in new packaging to Australia. The 'Bequest' package was created to honour the retirement of founder and chairman Brian Morrison. There are some truly exceptional Scotch Whisky (s) here with impressive age statements, all single cask whisky (s) with understandably small out turns. No chill filtering or colour added and bottled at cask strength. The 3 I have managed to get my hands on are:
Bowmore 1996 22 Year Old, ex Hogshead . Given Brian's close connection to Bowmore I could not pass this up! Only 225 bottles from the outturn and the measly allocation I could get was 6 bottles!
Macallan 1993 25 Year Old, ex Bourbon Barrel. Only 196 bottles from the barrel here. I'm told to think 'rare oak' releases on this one. These old Macallan Malts are always something special, and considering the number of Scotch Whisky collectors who chase Macallans they never stay around long. Given the low number of whiskies from the out turn I count myself lucky to have been allocated 9 bottles.
Finally is the 1993 Glen Grant 26 Year Old again from an ex Bourbon Barrel. I'm told on good advice this Glen Grant 26 Year Old is an exceptional Single Cask release! So exceptional, my allocation for all of Australia...3 bottles :(
Stay tuned for when these land, but if you are interested in putting your name down for a bottle, send me and email at email@example.com
