Dufftown 2008 Milan Whisky Festival 11 Year Old / Diamond Rum Cask Finish
Whiskybroker was founded in 2010 with the intention of supplying larger quantities of whisky to clubs and connoisseurs to buy and bottle in bulk. In addition to this service, they bottle some of the casks themselves, keeping the presentation simple and the costs down in order to offer affordable independent alternatives to standard distillery bottlings.
This single malt was distilled in 2008, filled into a single hogshead and matured until 2019. It was then split into four small Oloroso sherry octaves in 2019, before being married together in 2020 and bottled.
Dufftown was built in 1896, becoming part of the Arthur Bell & Sons portfolio in 1933. As with Blair Athol, Dufftown was regularly bottled as a single malt, despite its importance to the Bell's blends. When the company was bought by Guinness in 1985, these bottlings stopped, but a Dufftown distillery bottling returned in 1991 as part of United Distillers’ Flora & Fauna series, later becoming part of The Singleton stable. Prior to the construction of Roseisle, Dufftown was Diageo's largest distillery.
