From the talented mind of Alistair Walker comes this mighty age-statement that was distilled in 1992 in Speyside before being laid to rest for 29 years with a finishing period in a rye barrel. It was bottled at 46.9% ABV, with an out-turn of just 274 bottles. Like all Infrequent Flyers bottlings, this whisky is bottled in its most authentic form – un-chill filtered with natural colour.
Limited stock has been allocated for the Australian market.
About Infrequent Flyers
The ‘Infrequent Flyers’ range is a series of single cask bottlings of Scotch whiskies brought to us by Alistair Walker, of Deanston, Tobermory, BenRiach, GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh fame. The expressions are predominantly single malts, though now and again Alistair does release a single grain. The brand name ‘Infrequent Flyers’ refers to the nature of many of the casks that are bottled – often whiskies from lesser-known distilleries that are of excellent quality, but have never been widely or consistently available.
