The Golden Age Blend

The Golden Age Blend 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.

Sweet and spicy in equal measures this shows serious amounts of age with beeswax and furniture polish and lots of juicy fruits.

An utterly fabulous old dram this really is delicious and worth every penny.

Thanks to Maverick Drinks for the official sample

 

Oh lovely, there's a lovely plum and fruit peel note, raisins and dried apricots mix with beeswax furniture polish, hints of tobacco leaf and new leather mix with old wood furniture and sweet honey.

Sweet waxy notes with hints of cardboard, tobacco leaf and leather then lots of dark fruit peel, plums and apricots, really lovely old mahagony furniture that's been newly polished, then spiced fruits come through also.

Sweet, drying and spicy
