An independent bottling of Glen Elgin, distilled in December 1995. It then was laid to rest in cask #3268, a single hogshead, for nearly quarter of a century. After its 23 years had passed, Signatory bottled the single malt in February 2019 for the Cask Strength Collection. The 258 bottles drawn from the hogshead were of course bottled at cask strength - 49.2% ABV.
