By Hannah Kanik / February 26, 2021

Scotch whisky brand John Crabbie & Co. recently announced the launch of its single cask, a 1992, 28-year-old Speyside Single Malt. 

The single malt has been released in just 260 bottles, making it one of the more exclusive bottlings to come from the brand. It was matured in a single cask from an unnamed distillery in the Glenlivet Valley of Speyside, and has official tasting notes that make mention of fresh fruit aromas and hints of spicy oak, toffee apples and chocolate caramels on the palate. It is rounded off with a smooth and creamy finish.

The Scotch whisky is bottled at 45.5% alcohol by volume at Crabbie’s own Edinburgh-based facility. It comes in a wooden case and features embossed detailing to showcase the Crabbie elephant and ‘Leith, Edinburgh’ wording to commemorate the heritage of the brand. 

John Crabbie & Co. has a wide array of award-winning products, including the Crabbie Whisky 30-year-old single malt scotch, the Crabbie 12-year-old single whisky, Crabbie Whisky 8-year-old single malt scotch and the Crabbie’s Yardhead. 

John Kennedy, Commercial Controller for Scotland, John Crabbie & Co. said in a prepared statement that “John Crabbie was well renowned for sourcing whiskies from the very best distilleries in Scotland, and as we seek to continue his legacy – this 1992 Speyside Single Malt is certainly no exception. Given the quality of the liquid and the real rarity of an age release from this Speyside distillery, this is an incredibly exciting launch for the John Crabbie brand, and we’re confident that it’ll be well-received amongst whisky fans. Plus, with the price point, and the limited production, we don’t think it’ll be available for long.”

The 1992, 28-year-old Speyside Single Malt is being old at a suggested retail price of £350 and is available for order now.
