Ardbeg 1967 Kingsbury 29 Year Old #922
This is an incredible bottle of old sherry casked Ardbeg, bottled by Kingsbury's of Japan.
Kingsbury are Japan's most sought after independent bottler. They were founded in 1989 by Eaglesome, the high-end deli in Campbeltown that was purchased by J & A Mitchell & Co of Springbank distillery, and turned into one of the region's finest whisky merchants. They initially bottled Kingsbury's exclusively for the Japanese market, before the label was acquired by native firm, the Japanese Import System. They have released a number of some of the most collectible whiskies, including a Bowmore 1966, and two dark sherry casked Ardbeg, this is one of them.
Indeed, this particular cask is the highest rated Ardbeg on Serge Valentin's WhiskyFun.com, receiving a staggering score of 97 points. He had this to say, "…It’s got everything."
Distilled on 8th March 1967 and matured in single sherry cask #922 until June 1996.
