Among connoisseurs of single malt Scotch, whisky from the Springbank distillery in Cambeltown is highly prized. A new rare, limited edition bottling of Springbank 40 Year Old from Ian Macleod Distillers' Chieftain's Single Malt Whisky collection is sure to be snapped up quickly. Only 398 bottles of the exceptional natural strength, natural colour and unchill-filtered whisky, distilled in 1968, are being produced at a price of €800 or about $1,300 each. the bottle rests in a silver leather-lined, piano finished, solid oak box which has been stained black and lacquered 11 times to enhance the natural wood grain. Two silver plaques on the front of the box display all the individual bottle details, as does a certificate of authenticity scroll personally signed by Antony McCallum-Caron, Chieftain's Rare Malt Manager. A neck tag hung on a silver chain features detailed tasting notes.
