A Highland Distillery 16Y – 50%

The name of the distillery must not be written, but a clue is Westport.

Super nice color, on this Highland distillery bottling, Claxton’s has bottled at 50%. The bottling is one of the 7 different ones released in their second release of their “Exploration Series.” The whisky has aged 16 years on a Sherry Butt (500L), which has given it this beautiful color.

The distillery from which this bottling comes is owned by Hennessy and founded in 1843, as well as an annual production of approx. 6,000,000 Liter.

In this second release of the “Exploration Series”, a total of 7 different bottlings have been released, which Fadandel.dk has the agency on. All bottlings in this series are bottled in standard round bottles, and not in the “flat” bottle type that Claxton’s otherwise normally uses. Under the foil on all the taps, in the “Exploration Series”, you will find a Claxton’s gold tokens. Once you have collected five tokens and sent them back to Claxton’s, you will have access to an exclusive Claxton’s bottling. Read more about the process here.
