Hunter Laing, Hepburn's Choice Craigellachie 2011 9YO (700ml)
Hunter Laing, Hepburn's Choice
Craigellachie 2011 (9YO)
The Hepburn’s Choice range comprises whiskies bottled either from specially-selected single casks or from small batches of two to three casks. Always bottled at 46% alcohol, and naturally without artificial colouring or chill-filtration.
Each bottling is chosen to showcase the specific characteristics of one of Scotland’s whisky producing regions, or those of a distillery in particular. This range is named in honour of our directors’ late maternal grandfather, William Hepburn, who travelled the globe with his job in the Diplomatic Service.
With a fine judgement honed at many embassy functions, Mr Hepburn was a connoisseur of his homeland’s whiskies: with this in mind we believe these bottlings would indeed have been "Hepburn's Choice"
You will find notes of chocolate, red berries, vanilla and rich toffee stemming from this exquisite single red wine cask.
