Littlemill 2017 Private Cellar Edition

Price: £2,250 (US$2,917)
Launched at the beginning of this month, only 500 bottles of a 27-year-old single malt from silent Scotch whisky distillery Littlemill were released globally.

To create the whisky, Loch Lomond master blender Michael Henry picked eight refill ex-Bourbon barrels that had been distilled between 11 and 19 May 1990, each filled at 68.8% abv. The casks were then married in fresh Bourbon barrels for 12 months before bottling at 51.3% abv.

Each decanter is individually numbered and presented in a case, which includes a piece of Littlemill cask used to mature the whisky, plus a miniature of the whisky itself.
