Speyside Festival To Feature Unique Whisky
How many different types of single malt can exist harmoniously in one bottle? The place to find out is the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival being held later this month. The Scotsman reports that over 150 bottles of single malt from 26 Speyside distilleries will be blended to create a one-off blend. The unique product is the creation of Ed Dodson, who was a master distiller at the Glen Moray distillery and Jim Cryle who is a retired master distiller at The Glenlivet. The malts range from ten-year-olds to 21-year-olds including some rare offerings. Only one 700ml bottle will be produced and auctioned off. The bottle will probably go to a collector for an exorbitant sum but there will be also be 2,000 souvenir miniatures available at the festival.
