Drams like this, with its smooth palate laden with creme brûlée and vanilla notes, are far too rare to burden with heavy-handed words, as Chaucer might have said. Here you have a bottle of whisky from a now-silent distillery, which means there is not only no production there any more, but the whole site has now been torn down so no more Port Dundas whisky will ever be produced.

Port Dundas, built in 1811, was once the largest distillery in Scotland producing over 39 million litres of spirit per year until it was closed forever in 2011. Situated in Glasgow, this distillery was an icon of the city, and of Scotland, being built at the highest point in the city before its sad demise.
