Located on the Moray Coast, in distillery terms, Banff was situated between Macduff and Glenglassaugh. In its early days, when still owned by the Simpson family, single malt was bottled under the name Old Banff and supplied to the House of Commons. In the DCL era, it provided fillings for blends. There are very occasional bottlings, most notably within Diageo’s now discontinued Rare Malts range. The whisky had a slight smoky tinge underneath perfumed notes, a distinct apple note and the light oiliness of many of these older distilleries.
