Speyside Single Malt 1973 Antique Lions 44 Year Old / The Butterflies

A unique and attractive bottling from an undisclosed Speyside distillery. 

Distilled in 1973 and bottled 44 years later as part of The Butterflies series for Antique Lions Of Spirits (ALOS). The labels are an homage to old Moon Import bottles, and feature lost plates by the same artist, discovered in Pepi Mongiardino's collections.

ALOS was recently formed as a collaborative project between renowned whisky enthusiast and collector, Jens Drewitz and two Italian whisky merchants: Max Righi of Whisky Antique, and Diego Sandrin of Lions Whisky.  Their uncompromising passion for whisky is the drive behind their selection of these whiskies of equally uncompromised quality.

This is one of 372 bottles drawn from a sherry cask.
