The Golden Age Blend Review

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.

You can pick up a bottle, or a sample, from Master of Malt

Thanks to Maverick Drinks for the official sample
