BANFF 80/100

... CLOSED 1983
...... an obscure and hard to find speyside Malt consigned to the annals of history.
An anodyne Malt by nature with no strong still signature, any bottles now are Indi and of variable quality so be warned! ... Folklore has it that during the war in 1941, a German bomber dropped a shell on the warehouse and in the resulting explosion, hundreds of barrels washed into the distillery burn causing all the fish, sheep, cows and desperate humans to end up totally pissed. .... yipee!
The Rare Malt Selection version at 21 y.o. seems to be the best example of this whisky.
