Strathisla 1998 18 Year Old Single Cask #99642 Keepers of the Quaich Description

The first-ever bottling for the Keepers of the Quaich was donated by Strathisla, and was selected by Keeper of the Quaich Chairman Peter Prentice. In 1998, he selected an 18-year-old refill sherry butt and bottled the whisky at an eye-watering cask strength of 59.4% abv without any chill-filtration. The cask yielded 529 bottles which were released for the KOTHQ’s Autumn banquet in 2016.

Fun fact: 1998 was the year Doddie won the Premiership Title with the Newcastle Falcons.

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

This bottle has been kindly noticed by Peter Prentice, Chairman of the Keepers of the Quaich.

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
