Miltonduff Distillery - Single Malt - Scotland- 1979
Located within Miltonduff Distillery in Morayshire, Mosstowie was founded in 1964 under the ownership of industry pioneer Hiram Walker - who championed the use of longer, more versatile Lomond Stills to give a variety of flavour profiles.
This stills, which produced Mosstowie's smoky, soft spirit operated for just 17 years as the longer arms of the stills were notoriously difficult to clean, resulting in their removal in 1981.
Only 164 bottles are available worldwide of this full-bodied whisky, full of sherry influences and dark chocolate notes. The 40-year-old whisky was laid down in Gordon & MacPhail's Elgin warehouse on Thursday 13 September 1979 in cask number 20323, a refill Sherry Hogshead. (G&M)
Mosstowie was the name given to single malt produced on Lomond stills at Miltonduff Distillery. Butterscotch, ripening peaches, ripe plums, and a hint of lime on the nose. The palate is viscous, with red berries, peach, and vanilla. Drying steadily in the finish, with aniseed, black pepper, and, finally, black tea. (164 bottles, 16 for U.S.)
