The Exceptional Blend

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

Method & Production

An exemplary selection of mature grain and malt casks from North British, Strathclyde, Cameronbridge, Glenfarclas, Ben Nevis, Alt-a’Bhainne, Auchroisk, Glenallachie, Westport, Macallan and a vatted barrel of three storied family owned Speyside distilleries, blended and married in first-fill Oloroso sherry cask. While others blend to produce year-in, year-out consistency, each edition of The Exceptional Blend will offer a whisky that is authentically individual, possessed of its own qualitative and stylistic distinction.

Tasting notes

Initial nose is all crème caramel and orange marmalade, evolving on the palate to include wild strawberry and vanilla cream. The finish is long and lingering with notes of shortbread, orange peel and a whisper of herbal mint.
