The Exceptional Grain

  • The Exceptional by Sutcliffe & Son
  • Edinburgh, The United Kingdom

Method & Production

A blend of very special aged Scotch grain whiskies, selected from several different distilleries, each cask chosen for its distinctive and memorable characteristics. While others blend to produce year-in, year-out consistency, each edition of The Exceptional Grain will offer a whisky that is authentically individual, possessed of its own qualitative and stylistic distinction. Composed of a selection of remarkable casks from North British, Loch Lomond, Strathclyde, Cameronbridge and Carsebridge distilleries, blended and married in first-fill Oloroso Sherry cask. A whisky of this kind is very unusual and at this level of quality, its a rarity to experience.

Tasting notes

First nosing suggests lemon meringue and toffee apple, followed by apple, cinnamon, cranberry and tablet on the palate. The finishis long and lingering with notes of apple pie, cream and butterscotch.
