The outstanding quality of this Speyside Single Malt Whisky distils in a bottle the exceptional attributes of the Highlanders and their predecessors for the past 230 years. Everything these Highland Warriors have achieved is a result of quality, pride, precision and dedication, which this whisky reflects.
The flavour is rich and mellow with ripe fruit and fudge aromas. The fruitiness continues on the palate with a vanilla sweetness and delicate hint of smoke, which are representative of its highland heritage and the long 10 year ageing process.
Cuidichn Righ is Gaelic for Help the King and is the motto for the Queens Own Highlanders (Seaforth and Camerons) and subsequently The Highlanders. Tradition has it that Colin Fitzgerald, ancestor of the Mackenzies of Seaforth, saved King Alexander III from a charging Stag when he shouted Cuidichn Righ as he slayed it with his spear.
