Blended at Birth

1965 Blended Scotch Whisky

47% ABV

Distilled in 1965 and married as new make spirit this unusual combination of malt and grain whisky has spent the following 57 years maturing in American oak where it has taken on rich, decadent notes of marzipan and fruitcake. This rare release is packaged in a hand engraved, individually-numbered decanter with ash display box featuring gold leaf inlay.

£4,500 GBP

70CL

Character

Rich notes of marzipan, Dundee cake and leather on the nose followed by pleasing tannin-rich herbal tea on the palate and a cool, minty aftertaste. This is not only one of the world’s first whiskies to be blended at birth, it is also likely to be one of the last, for such practices are now prohibited by the powers that be within Scotch.

Significance

Some whiskies may appear born to be paired together but very few are blended at birth. Yet such is the case with this unusual parcel of grain and malt, born 57 years ago and married –as new make spirit –before aging as a blend for half a lifetime in ex-bourbon American oak. Time has brought the malt and grain components together to create a blend that has matured beautifully as a single spirit.
