Muckety-Muck Single Grain 24 Year is a release under Diageo's Orphan Barrel Whisky Co. portfolio. This single grain whisky was distilled at Port Dundas Distillery (1810-2010) and aged for 24 years before bottling.

During the distillery's most successful periods, it had a piggery on-site and the draff leftover from the mashing process was fed to the pigs. The pig on the bottle is named Muckety-Muck, a prize-winning pig that had the breeders keen to use him in their endeavors. There are six variations for the bottle label with the color of the tartan sash worn by Muckety-Muck in either red, green, blue, gray, yellow or orange.

Tasting Notes

"The oak barrels really come through here along with a bit of char and vanilla. There's some fruity notes like pear and apple skins which come through stronger on the palate. The whisky is a medium light body with a crème brûlée sweetness, but the finish is moderately spicy and is bittersweet. Overall, while the whisky is pleasant enough to sip, it isn't super compelling for a whisky of this age. "
