Caperdonich 1968 11 year old Connoisseurs Choice Black Label

Caperdonich 1968 11 year old Connoisseurs Choice Black Label

Distilled at the Caperdonich distillery in 1968 this whisky was bottled at 11 years old by Gordon & Macphail as part of the early Connoisseur’s Choice series.

This early black label style still lists the series as “Connoisseur’s Choice”; the apostrophe appears to have been dropped when they released the brown label style in the 1980s and since then it has been Connoisseurs Choice.

This early release from what is an iconic series has the distinctive black label with red white and gold font and comes with the original gold and red box. Please note there is some damage to the ‘window’ of the box.

A Caperdonich 1968 11 year old Connoisseurs Choice was last at auction in early 2018 and at the time was sold with no box.

Originally known as Glen Grant No. 2, a small pipe used to run overhead from the Glen Grant distillery to Caperdonich so that they could cask and recreate similar distillate to that of Glen Grant. The distillery operated like this for only four years before lying dormant until 1965 when it was purchased by Glenlivet. A law passed in the same year stating that two distilleries couldn’t operate with the same name, as a result Glenlivet renamed the distillery to Caperdonich. Sadly, the distillery ceased production in 2002 and was sold in 2010 with the buildings being demolished, making whisky from this distillery increasingly scarce.
