Carsebridge 48 y.o. - Special Release 2018

Profile Single Grain
Region Scotland
Body Whiskey

The busy brewing town of Alloa was the perfect site for John Bald to erect a distillery, what with a direct access to nearby coal pits, grain and malt delivered via the Alloa Harbour, and access to water at the Gartmorn Dam. By the time it became part of Scottish Grain Distillers in 1966, it was one of the biggest grain distilleries in Scotland. Carsebridge has only ever been bottled as a single grain with high age statements by independent bottlers in recent years, though as a result of its closure in 1983, stocks are now running low.

Tasting Notes

Product Notes
The oldest bottling in the 2018 edition of Diageo's Special Releases and the sole grain Whiskey entry: a 48 year old from closed Carsebridge distillery – it closed back in 1983. This is a classic old grain Whiskey, matured in refill American-oak hogsheads to ensure that the spirit wasn't overwhelmed by wood influence.
