A rich and caramely single grain Scotch found sitting in barrels, untouched for twenty-four years and now we can finally have a dram.

An "orphan barrel" is a common term in the Spirits industry for a barrel that has missed out on a release of a blend for one reason or another. Sometimes it’s because it was simply misplaced in the rickhouse — if you’ve ever seen the inside of one of these massive storage facilities you’d understand how easy that can happen. Very often these casks are sold off to independent bottlers. Diageo launched their own brand called "Orphan Barrel" to do that exact same thing when a handful of barrels are found in their amazingly huge inventory. Originally they intended to use this outlet for just the Whiskies in their American portfolio, but they’ve recently opened it up to their other properties in the UK.

Muckety-Muck from Orphan Barrel is EXACTLY the kind of special release bottling they intended. Someone found a handful of casks distilled at the Port Dundas Distillery near Glasgow. The facility was closed more than a decade ago. But here we have a bunch of casks of twenty-four year-old single grain Scotch just sitting there with nowhere to go. So they bottled it up at 45% ABV and brought this golden, obviously limited edition opportunity to us. And in keeping with the limited edition nature of this offering, there are six color variations in the label, no doubt spurring collector demand.

The Port Dundas Distillery sits on a hill overlooking Glasgow proper. It was founded in 1810 and made Spirits for two hundred years.

Jacci,
Not bad. It has a bit of an aftertaste or more so like a bite. I definitely complained about not having a box or an outside packaging as it was a gift for Christmas and paying $350 total with shipping I was kind of disappointed just opening the box and having just the bottom one there. I’m definitely up for trying new and different types of liquor from this company. Let’s just all have a happy new year and a very blessed 2021. And remember thank Jesus for everything!!

A great Dram, smooth on the nose with caramel and oak. Taste with a hint of citrus, vanilla, and butterscotch.
