Ladyburn 1973 Statement 43 Year Old - Blackadder 70cl / 41.9%
Donated by Robin and Michael Tucek of Blackadder International.
A bottle of Ladyburn 43 Year Old Lowland single malt Scotch whisky, Edition No.17 in the Statement Raw Cask series. This was distilled on 28 September 1973, matured in a single cask and bottled at cask strength in October 2016 by Blackadder International.
As with all of the Raw Cask series, this whisky has not been filtered at all and may contain harmless cask sediment.
This is bottle number 4 of 60; it was bottled from cask 5678.
Ladyburn was built within William Grant & Son's Girvan grain distillery in 1966. The four pot stills were used to supply malt whisky for Grant's blends, freeing up stock from Glenfiddich which was becoming popular as a single malt. Demand for Girvan's grain whisky grew and Ladyburn was dismantled in 1975, meaning the stills were operational for just nine years. Given its short lifespan, only a handful of official bottlings were released, including a 1973 vintage, as well as some from independent bottlers such as Cadenhead's, Blackadder and Signatory Vintage.
