Caskers Orphan Barrel Muckety-Muck 25 Year Old Scotch Whisky, Diageo’s Orphan Barrel line up recently had released into it its second single grain Scotch whisky, the Muckety-Muck 25 Year Old from the historic Port Dundas Distillery.
Although Port Dundas closed its doors in 2010, there are a few select remaining stocks that allow a glimpse into the past of one of Scotland’s most historic distilleries.
Port Dundas was also once home to a piggery with hundreds of pigs. One prized pig in particular, Muckety-Muck, In turn, that pig inspired the name of this limited edition release that follows upon the heels of a 24 year old offering under the same moniker.
Six variations of the bottle label are available, with Muckety-Muck himself boasting a Scottish tartan sash in either red, green, blue, gray, orange or yellow, making the range of label variations a collectible keepsake.
The distiller’s notes show that the aroma of Muckety-Muck 25 Year Old starts with a burst of caramel and notes of baked sugar backed by the taste of crisp fruit and light toasted oak.
