The XL Blend Batch 1 Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar 24 December 2018
The Blended Whisky Company
The Blended Whisky Company produces blends like the Lost Distilleries Blend, which is made exclusively from whiskies produced at now closed distilleries. Containing malts from Port Ellen and Caperdonich, for example, The Lost Distilleries Blend was named the World’s Best Blended Whisky at Whisky Magazine’s World Whiskies Awards in 2014, having previously received a score of 94 in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
Their second release, The Golden Age Blend, then picked up 3 Trophies in 2016 as a winner at the World Whiskies Awards, the IWSC and the ISC.
The XL Blend Batch 1 (46.2%)
The XL Blend from The Blended Whisky Company is crafted exclusively using whiskies aged for at least 40 years. Hence the name – XL means 40 in Roman numerals. It’s also particularly XL in terms of flavor profile, making this one to savor and enjoy.
I have also done a tasting here if you would like to see it as it was recorded:
