Tasting Notes

An exclusive blend of single malts from some of Scotland's top distilleries with a rare batch of ex-bourbon mature Macallan at its heart, with the rest of the blend composed of Aultmore and Glenlivet all three aged in first fill casks. All of the single malts in the whisky were matured for a minimum of 19 years before being blended and bottled with their natural color, un-chill filtered at a healthy 96 proof. Paying for single malts this old with one bill has become by and large a thing of the past. To get several of them together in one bottle easily makes this one of the best values in the category. Notes include beautiful clover honey, yellow peaches, vanilla bean, coconut, apricot marmalade, ginger candy, grassy malt, heather, earthy peat and baking spices. This whisky really delivers.

Glen Graeme brings Macallan, Aultmore, and Glenlivet together harmoniously with notes of rich cream, pipe smoke, mossy peat, bold mint, and a long finish that makes for a blend greater than the sum of its single malts.

With the Parliament’s passing of the “Excise Act” in 1824, licensing fees for distilleries were much cheaper. Distilleries started to take out...
