.the balvenie – 15yo – dun eideann – 1974-1990

43% abv, €??, single malt

No notes, tasted at a nosing& tasting

Mark: +++/++
Conclusion: She had a rough start, which was troubled by a stubborn cork that decided to disintegrate on the moment of opening. After having removed (most of the) cork and poured the dram, most people did not get much out of it – clearly we had to leave this for a while and give a go a little later.

More info: 75cl, distilled on the 19th December 1974 that had matured in casks 18103-18130 and was bottled in July 1990 at 43%, into bottle number 2890 of 3000.

The Dun Eideann bottles are (were?) a series of bottlings that are bottled by the Signatory and on rare occasions they would do splits like this into different bottles, with different strengths.
