Nose: Subtle Sherry aromas lead to plum, red apple, and custard notes. A fresh lime undertone develops. Taste: Peppery but creamy with lemon, grapefruit, and hints of cocoa powder. Charred oak flavours combine with a hint of liquorice.

Coleburn Distillery

Coleburn Single Malt Whiskey


A Dundee based firm of whiskey blenders commissioned the architect Charles C. Diog to design Coleburn malt whiskey distillery in 1897 and it duly opened in 1899 at Coleburn farm just to the south of Fogwatt in Scotland's Speyside whiskey region. Coleburn Distillery was built beside Colburn railway station which ensured a speedy connection to the southern whiskey blenders. This distillery closed in 1985 and whilst many of the buildings remains most of the equipment has gone. Recent releases are few and are highly collectable, an example being Gordon & MacPhails Coleburn Rare Old.
