The Golden Age Blend Crowned Best Blended Scotch 2016!
Named for the ‘Golden Age’ of distilling spanning the early ’60s to the mid ’70s, The Golden Age Blend has been named Best Blended Scotch at the World Whiskies Awards 2016.
A superbly rich, intense and full bodied award-winning blended whisky, it demonstrates the extraordinary depth of flavour that can be found in some of the marvellous whiskies distilled during the ‘Golden Age’. Just 210 bottles are available worldwide.
To create this whisky, The Blended Whisky Company took a selection of the finest venerable malts (all the whiskies used are aged for over 40 years) distilled at Macallan, Glenrothes and Tamdhu. Next, additional character and ‘seasoning’ was added in the form of gently peated whisky from Bunnahabhain.
Finally, an exceptionally well-aged grain whisky from North British was added to tie the other malts together and form the backbone of the blend, at a ratio of approximately 4 parts malt to just 1 part grain.
The Golden Age Blend is available to buy from fine retailers including Master of Malt (RRP £349.95).
