Bought – Online Whisky Auction, 22nd December 2013
79/100 – Malt Maniacs (average from 3 reviewers)
When I bought this bottle at auction I thought the seal over the cap had been put on by the distillery but I was wrong. When the bottle arrived I realised the seal was from the US Internal Revenue to indicate that the import tax had been paid. The great thing about this seal is it has the date printed on it – 1st May 1983. Which means this 10yo was distilled no later than 1973. It was imported by John Gross & Co, Baltimore, Maryland. 31 years later and it’s back in the UK!
