The first of the Seven Stills of Dufftown, Mortlach was established in 1823. It is one of the great iconoclastic distilleries for its unique combination of stills and the fact that its spirit is distilled 2.81 times.

Described by Dave Broom as, "the beast of Dufftown" its muscular and beefy style has won an army of followers over the years.

This stunning whisky was the oldest single malt whisky in the world when it was released in March 2010.

The whisky has been bottled in a hand-blown, tear-shaped crystal decanter, which is set in a silver base and housed in a Brazilian Rosewood box.

Only 162 of these decanters were released and it has been described as 'Scotland's Liquid History'.

Distilled: 1938

Bottled: 2008

Age: 70 years old

Cask type: Spanish oak, bodega refill sherry hogshead.

46.1% ABV / 20cl

Bottle Number: 81 / 162
