1 bottle Glen Garioch 1968. 29 Year Old. Cask number 614. 70cl. 54.4%. In wooden presentation box. Level base of neck. Good condition.
One of a series of almost 20 astonishing single cask full strength Glen Gariochs from the 1968 vintage released by owners Suntory at 29 years old in 1997, the year the distillery was reopened after a brief hiatus that began in 1995.
1968 was the year that then-owners Distillers Company Limited decommissioned Glen Garioch, subsequently selling the distillery to Stanley P. Morrison in 1970. The fact that Glen Garioch was mothballed during a period when it was making whisky of this standard is a tragic shame on the evidence of this outstanding sherry hogshead, stuffed with intense fruit and rich, spicy, leathery tobacco flavours.
Although a condition report is normally included in the Lot description, we do recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the form below "Ask A Question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise, Lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles, corks and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. And no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
All bottles are checked by our whisky specialists Wayne & Harrison Ormerod prior to any auction. We do not auction opened bottles so therefore all items are sealed unless stated under certain circumstances where seals were never issued by the producer.
No item is deemed new, however many items are generally in good condition. When this is not the case, we aim to mention any faults in the description. The images supplied are of the actual item you will receive. If the filling level of the liquid is not visible in the images provided, we aim to indicate the current position in the description. If the filling level is impossible to determine, such as with ceramics decanters, we will provide an overall weight of the decanter in KG. Our filling level guideline can be found here.
All information in this listing is provided to the best of our knowledge including when we chose to date the age of a bottle. If you are unhappy with the listing or believe there is an error/discrepancy, you should notify us immediately and we will address the Lot accordingly. Placing a bid confirms you have checked the Lot and are satisfied.
If you have any questions regarding this item, please send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. All questions must be submitted no later than 6 hours before the end of the auction to guarantee a response.
