The world-renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club in Dornoch, Sutherland, Scotland, has for the first time licensed the use of its famous crest and tartan on a unique Highland single malt. The exclusive dram has been created for the Carnegie Whisky Cellars, in partnership with the golf club, and can be purchased only from the specialist shop in the centre of Dornoch.
Carnegie Whisky Cellars’ own whisky club members tasted the new malt and voted it as ‘top dram’ in a blind tasting against five other well-known single malt whiskies. Full bodied and sherry cask matured, it is described as marvellously mellow, with warming hints of spice and a long lingering finish.
The bottles of the whisky come in 70cl or 20cl sizes and are adorned with Royal Dornoch’s iconic wildcat emblem and its officially registered tartan.
