Match 8 Year Old Bottled 1970s-1980s - Branca 75cl / 43%
A bottle of Match 8 Year Old Special Malt Whisky, distilled and bottled by Burn Brae Ltd. This was imported and distributed in Italy by by Fratelli Branca. We estimate this was bottled in the late 1970s to early 1980s.
This lot comes from a large collection built up during the 1970s in Kent, England. For 50 years the owner displayed the collection in the family’s home bar, with later additions being gifted to the collector by friends and family. Then in 2021 the collection was dismantled to be sold at auction. Many of the bottles have stickers that show the original price paid and the date (month/year) of purchase.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear and damage to the tax strip.
