Sovereign is a range of old and rare Single Cask Single Grain Scotch whiskies which are bottled at full cask strength.

Traditionally used as the major component of blended whiskies, Single Grain whisky has become fashionable in recent times and the Sovereign range provides some exceptional old and rare examples such as this 42 year old from Carsebridge distillery.

OFFICIAL TASTING NOTES
Nose: Notes of apples, plums, marzipan and dark, nutty chocolate.
Palate: Sweet and smooth with cherries, apricots and just the slightest hint of spice.
Finish: Medium length with an oaky, warming influence.

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Based in Alloa, Carsebridge distillery was established in 1799 for the purpose of producing malt whisky and was converted to produce grain whisky in 1852.

At one time, during the 1880's, Carsebridge was Scotland's largest distillery, but the facility was closed in 1983 before being demolished in 1992.

Nowadays the site used as a business park, though some of the original building can still be seen.

Carsebridge single grain whisky is very hard to find, with some old and rare stocks being bottled by The Clan Denny brand of single cask, cask strength single grain whiskies.
