The second-ever bottling for Keepers of the Quaich was selected by a valued member of the Management Committee, Dr Nicholas Morgan, in December 1998. Nick selected a refill butt from the Talisker distillery, aged 18 years old and bottled at a cask strength of 56.6% abv without chill-filtration. The cask yielded 618 bottles which were released for the KOTHQ’s Autumn banquet in 2017.
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.
