The Macphunn 18 Year Old 

Charlie Maclean selected an 'unknown (probably Glenfarclas) speyside malt' at 18 years old, bottled at cask strength of 56.9% and yielding only 300 bottles - to revive this unusual brand.

The story goes that during the 17th century, the clan chieftain MacPhunn was charged with sheep stealing and was duly hanged in Inveraray. His corpse was immediately collected by his young wife, but while being rowed home across the loch for burial, Lady MacPhunn saw her husband's body twitch. She poured a measure of illicitly-distilled whisky into a cup and expressed some breast milk into before raising the cup to her husband's lips. “Uisge beatha,” he is said to have whispered, as the innovative cocktail revived him
