Allt-A-Bhainne 1979 SMWS 14 Year Old 108.1
A lesser seen single malt, Allt-A-Bhainne is an unglamorous structure built by Seagram in 1975. Primarily a constituent in blends, Chivas Brothers bottled an official single malt for the first time in 2018. A number of independent releases like this were made available in the preceding years however, and are still a popular addition to catalogues today.
Distilled in November 1979 and bottled 14 years later in May 1994 by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) was founded in 1983 by a group of friends lead by tax accountant Phillip ‘Pip’ Hills as a private members club. The concept behind the society was to source casks from all over Scotland which would then be bottled and made available exclusively to its members. Perhaps the most famous feature of these bottles are the unique codes. Each distillery is represented by a different number and the following digits indicate that particular release. That same year, the SMWS set up its first location in Leith’s Vault buildings in Edinburgh where it still stands today.
