We don’t even know how we managed to get our hands on this Scotch.

Strathclyde distillery was originally created with Gin production in mind but following the rulebook was never something Strathclyde had in mind. After all, they decided to start creating their Grain Whisky in 1927, a time of depression in the UK and prohibition in the US. You may say crazy but what do you expect from a distillery based in Glasgow!? Over the years, this rebellious Spirit has been passed around some of the big boy alcohol companies and today creates a lot of the Grain Whisky used in Chivas Regal blends. Luckily, however, there are a few wise independent bottlers out there who access some of the distillery’s production unblended and release bottles as Single Grain Scotch.

This is one of them. Cadenhead is Scotland’s oldest independent bottler and somehow we have got our hands on their 26-year-old Strathclyde’s Single Grain Scotch. Not to state the obvious but this is proper rare and exclusive stuff, the kind of Whisky you’ll tell the Grandkids about one day. It’s been matured exclusively in a first fill Bourbon cask for all 26 years and to be honest you’re not going to get many chances to purchase a similar Whisky anytime soon. With only 168 bottles of this Scotch made available for purchase, you don’t even want to know the things we had to do to get hold of this one.
