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'.
