Marshall toasts Father's Day with Marshall Whisky

Iconic amp brand rolls out the barrel

Marshall has rolled out the perfect Father's Day gift for dad's who miss their youthful days of sipping on a bottle of rock 'n' roll mouthwash: Marshall 50-year-old malt whisky.

Bottled last year in celebration of Marshall's 50th Anniversary, the Islay blended malt has been kept safe for over half a century by Ian McLeod distillers.

It's quite a feat - whisky experts tell us that 50-year-old malts are quite rare. Presumably that's because it takes superhuman endurance to look after a barrel of booze for a lifetime.

The Marshall whisky apparently boasts "a nose of hazelnut, apricot, cocoa, ground coriander and orange zest; a palate of chocolate, kiwi fruit and fresh mint; and a finish of tropical fruit, sweet oak and elegant spice," which sounds delicious if confusing.

Strictly limited to 200 bottles and shipping in a dashing presentation box, this is a gift for serious whisky drinkers only. How serious? Well, it costs £420, which is about as serious as a bottle of booze gets.
