The Golden Age Blend Bottling Note

The Golden Age Blend is an extraordinary whisky, harking back to the 'Golden Age' of distilling from the early 1960s to the mid 1970s, being made exclusively with whiskies that are at least 40 years old. Malts from Macallan, Glenrothes and Tamdhu are used, along with a little peated Bunnahabhain to add the 'seasoning'. An extremely old grain from North British was selected to complete the blend and bring the different components together, with a ratio of 4 parts malt used to just 1 part grain. Only 210 bottles were produced.

This incredible whisky was named Best Scotch Blend at the World Whiskies Awards 2016 and Best Scotch Blend Over 20 Years Old at the International Spirits Challenge 2016 and won the Blended Scotch Whisky Trophy at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2016!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Chocolate brioche, sticky Corinth raisins, juicy barley and clean Sherry. A little toffee and butterscotch. Touches of sweet florals and Jelly Tots develop, dried apricots, cigar box, rum and raisin, nettle and rich raw honey.

Palate: Fruitcake, more juicy barley, spiced buns, resinous oak, Champagne, light honeycomb, icing sugar on yule log. Ripe gooseberries in syrup.

Finish: Very long with tobacco leaf, milk chocolate buttons and clean fruit with just a hint of peat.

Overall: Fantastic round 'old Sherry' character with a sense of precision. A tremendous blended Scotch whisky.

This is quite simply the very best whisky I have ever tasted. It's sold out in full bottles now, but there are still samples available. What are you waiting for!!!

Perfect

Lets start with I own over 100 whiskies and have had over 300, many in this price range. There is no doubt in my mind this is an absolute perfect whiskey. Very balanced, medium sherried, and well aged.

Get two if you can

One of the best whiskies I have ever drank. Well worth the money. Get two if you can.

Deep sherry goodness

Lovely rich sherry influence, and lots going on here besides that - this is a complex and deeply satisfying whisky.
