This single cask bottling from Dufftown distillery represents a bygone era, and arguably an extinct style of whisky. This is whisky history in a bottle.

Distilled on the 24th November 1987 and bottled at natural cask strength of 54.7% abv on the 17th June 2022. Matured in a refill hogshead, this cask has let the spirit character shine through without overwhelming the whisky. There are hints of sweetness from the American Oak but also an appealing bitter dark chocolate note as a result of 34 years of wood influence.

This is an incredibly complex whisky. One to leave in the glass and keep coming back to over the course of an evening. The palate dances from tropical fruit notes to dark chocolate to more earthy tones. This is a whisky that keeps you coming back for more.


The early 1990s saw the beginning of the boom of single malt whiskies with blended whisky slowly taking a back seat. Originally, the nutty backbone of Bells, Dufftown redefined itself as an ever so slightly more grassy style of whisky that is now recognisable as Singleton in the modern day. Indeed, those old style earthy and nutty notes are clear to see in this cask with a dark chocolate note shining through. How fitting it is that a whisky style that was originally produced for the blends of the time is now being consumed not only as a single malt but indeed as a single cask.

This cask is indeed a personal reminder of how the world of Scotch whisky changes with Time. While the names, stories and legacies will all stand the test of time, it is worth remembering that the liquid produced is ever evolving and changing with the times. Just as no two single cask releases of Finn Thomson Whisky will ever taste the same - this Dufftown shows that even the most recognisable of brands will also evolve to stay with the times.
