Signatory Vintage are an independent bottler founded in 1988 by Andrew and Brian Symington. The name ‘Signatory’ was derived from the initial intention to find a person of suitable standing to sign the labels for bottles drawn from a single cask. The first cask bottled was a 1968 Glenlivet which quickly sold through long before any suitable signee could be found.
Signatory currently bottle at three strengths: 43%, 46% Unchillfiltered (UCF) and Cask Strength.To add proof of authenticity to their cask strength bottlings, Signatory always include the cask numbers, date of distillation, date of bottling and number of bottles produced.Signatory Vintage’s aim is to offer as wide a range of whiskies as possible, some of which are not even bottled by the proprietary distillery. This allows malt enthusiast to sample the huge variety of subtle differences which occur between casks.
The Aultmore distillery is owned and run by John Dewar and Sons Ltd or better known as Bacardi. The distillery has changed hands a few times during its long history when it was founded in 1896. Aultmore in Gaelic means ‘Big Burn’ and the water for the spirit is taken from the Burn of Auchindorran which helps it produce around 2,100,000 litres of spirit annually. The Aultmore spirit has for a long time been a contributor to Dewars blends and is best known for its 12 year old single malt which has a very distinctive taste.
With this whisky you should expect a crisp but delicate single malt with plenty of fresh fruits, clean and rounded.
This independent bottle by Signatory has been matured in a single ex-bourbon Hogshead Barrel for 11 years and it was bottled at 43% abv. It was distilled on the 2nd of September 2008 and bottled on the 7th of February 2020.
