McGibbon’s Golf Range

McGibbon’s-Golf-RangeJust this week, Scotch whisky producer Douglas Laing unveiled two golf club and bag-shaped Scotch whisky decanters ahead of the Ryder Cup.

The McGibbon’s Golf Range is a re-launch of the editions that earned the whisky bottler the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement in 1990.

Both expressions are small batch, 43% abv bottlings in 500ml golf-themed ceramic decanters that have been given a modern makeover.

    Personally, I dislike bottles that hide their contents. Too much pleasure of a distillation lays in viewing the hues. The Highland Park 50, The Macallan M, and Johnnie Walker Diamond are all gorgeous. I was not too impressed by the J&B Tatoo or the Chivas Regal versions though, as those are basically fancy labels/wrappers with nothing unusual about the bottle itself.
