The idea for the Speyside distillery was born in 1956 but it took another 21 years for it to become reality. Its previous releases had been a no age statement (Drumguish), and 8 year old and a 10 year old. Now the distillery has released another three expressions, including this, a limited edition expression 12 year old, of 8000 bottles (not that limited, then). Although not a particularly well-known brand in the UK, it is big in Taiwan with sales of over a million bottles per year.
