Balmenach 'Miltonhaugh' 1966 Whisky Connoisseur 28 Year Old
Balmenach is a rarely seen single malt distillery in Speyside. It was built in the early 19th century and for the majority of the 20th it was owned by DCL (now Diageo). Its distinctive style made it highly prized by blenders, and little of it was spared for official distillery bottlings, or independents for that matter. The distillery was closed in 1993 during the Scotch market downturn, but was revived in 1997 by Inver House who purchased it and resumed production. The focus today is still on provision for blends, and Inver House are yet to release a distillery bottling. It is however the source of the popular Carounn gin.
Distilled 15th June 1966, this was bottled 28 years later for J.A. Bell as part of The Whisky Connoisseur range, named after his self-styled nickname. He bottled a whole series of single malts under different guises, which included a revival of the legendary Largiemeanoch pseudonym for Bowmore.
Selected from cask #3154.
