Food & Spirits: Scotland's Ian Macleod Distillers is launching an extremely rare, limited edition Springbank 40 Year Old from its award-winning Chieftain's Single Malt Whisky collection. Distilled in 1968 at the famous Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown, only 398 bottles of this exceptional natural strength, natural colour and unchill-filtered whisky will be available. It is the last, oldest and the best Springbank cask available from the Chieftain's collection. Sleek and masculine, the bottle rests in a silver leather-lined, piano finished, solid oak box which has been stained black and lacquered 11 times to enhance the natural wood grain.

Two silver plaques on the front of the box display all the individual bottle details, as does the certificate of authenticity scroll, personally signed by Antony McCallum-Caron, Chieftain's Rare Malt Manager. The Chieftains collections hallmark is that each bottling must be fit for a King, a Leader or in the Celtic world, a Chieftain. A neck tag hung on a silver chain features detailed tasting notes on this precious first fill sherry cask. A deep, rich gold colour, with a nose that hints of melon, ginger and light toffee, the palate is spicy, rich cedar wood mixed with herbal undertones and a long, powerful finish. Only 398 bottles are being produced at a price of €800 or about $1,300.
