G&M Rare Old Banff 1966 45.2%
A rare single sherry cask bottling of malt from the now-closed Banff distillery.
This cask (ref: RO/15/03) was distilled in 1966 and bottled in 2015. Outturn was 362 bottles.
The bottler's tasting note: sweet sherry influences, stewed apple and fig aromas with a delicate herbal edge. The palate has cracked black pepper with prune, grapefruit and red apple flavours.
Banff was established in 1824, but in 1863 it moved to a new site nearby. Like many whisky distilleries it endured fires and explosions, although unlike most, it was also bombed, in 1941. It finally closed in 1983.
