Dumbarton 1987 | 30 Year Old | Sovereign
Distilled in March 1987 and bottled by Hunter Laing 30 years later, this is a beautifully gentle, rounded dram with aromas of summer fruits, beeswax and vanilla. The flavours revolve around candied orange and caramel while the finish is medium-length and satisfying.
The Dumbarton distillery commenced production in 1938 and was closed in 2002 by then owners Allied Lyons. Aside from its whisky, the distillery was known for its 'Scotch Watch', a flock of 100 geese introduced in 1959 to protect its stocks from burglars.
