Unlocking the Vaults

In a Perfumed Garden is one of the first releases from The Vaults Collection

THE Scotch Malt Whisky Society has released two of its rarest single cask malt whiskies via a new premium series.

The first releases in The Vaults Collection are In a Perfumed Garden – a 26 year old single malt from a now-closed Lowland distillery – and Meeting an Old Master – a 27 year old single malt from a ‘renowned’ Speyside distillery; both expressions are said to have won approval from whisky veteran Charles MacLean.

Kai Ivalo, spirits director at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, said The Vaults Collection (which was released earlier this month) “encompasses the finest and rarest casks from our treasure trove of single cask whiskies”.

“These casks have been stored over decades and nurtured through their maturation as the ultimate expressions of their kind,” he said.
