John Crabbie & Co launch 1992 28 yo Speyside single malt
Pioneering Scotch whisky brand, John Crabbie & Co, is building upon its award winning Independent Bottling credentials and continuing its legacy of innovation with the launch of a new single cask, 28 YO Speyside Single Malt, of which just 260 bottles will be released.
One of the brand’s oldest expressions to date, this rare, 1992 Speyside Single Malt has been matured for 28 years in a single cask from an unnamed distillery in the Glenlivet Valley of Speyside. It boasts fresh fruit aromas on the nose, with hints of spicy oak, toffee apples and chocolate caramels on the palate, all rounded off with a lovely smooth, sweet creamy finish.
Bottled at 45.5% at Crabbie’s own facility in Edinburgh, it is presented in an elegant wooden presentation case, and in Crabbie’s new, bespoke bottles. These feature embossed detailing to showcase the distinctive Crabbie elephant and ‘Leith, Edinburgh’ wording in order to further emphasise the heritage and provenance of the brand.
John Kennedy, Commercial Controller for Scotland, John Crabbie & Co, comments, “John Crabbie was well renowned for sourcing whiskies from the very best distilleries in Scotland, and as we seek to continue his legacy – this 1992 Speyside Single Malt is certainly no exception. Given the quality of the liquid and the real rarity of an age release from this Speyside distillery, this is an incredibly exciting launch for the John Crabbie brand, and we’re confident that it’ll be well-received amongst whisky fans. Plus, with the price point, and the limited production, we don’t think it’ll be available for long”.
