Aftapperen Hunter Laing & Co, har under navnet The Whisky Barrel har sendt en 50 års Strathclyde i handlen.
Der er tale om cask #17254 fra 1969, en refill barrel der er aftappet ved fadstyrke på 40,1%
Der er noter af: Red berries, menthol and dark chocloate lead the nose. A lovely sweetness across the palate with apples, candy floss and toffee. A long finish with a mellow vanilla sweetness.
Strathclyde Distillery was established in 1927 on a site which had previously supported mills in Moffat Street by the south bank of the River Clyde in the heart of Glasgow. Strathclyde Distillery is a Lowland grain whisky distillery equipped with two Coffey continuous stills for grain whisky production and also a further five Coffey continuous stills which produce neutral spirit. Loch Katrine situated amongst the hills to the north of Glasgow provides the water. In 1957 Kinclaith malt distillery was constructed within the Strathclyde Distillery complex but closed in 1975 and was dismantled the following year.
