The Unnameable 2001 (Carn Mor c.10-year-old)

Bought – Nickolls & Perks, 17th June 2014

81.5/100 – Whiskybase (average from 2 member votes)

This Unnameable forms part of the 24 x 20cl bottles that make up the Carn Mor Vintage Collection. Distilled in 2001 and bottled in 2011, it’s from a limited edition of 1300, Cask No: 258. Non-chill filtered and no added colour.

The title ‘Unnameable’ is a bit of a joke by the independent bottler because they’ve been sold cask #258 on strict instruction that they’re not allowed to reveal the source distillery when selling on the bottlings. So it’s effectively a mystery malt. Not even the region is known (Speyside, Islay, etc) as it’s simply listed as ‘Scotland’ on Whiskybase for ‘district’. Someone suggests in a comment on Whiskybase that they think it’s Macallan but this is unlikely as the Carn Mor Vintage Collection contained a declared Macallan (distilled in 1988) in its original 24 bottles.
