Owned by Diageo.
This bottle is in most bars and hotels around the world and is available to buy in some local supermarkets but certainly on-line (check out our online shop window for Blended Whiskies of the month).
On a night out Jim and Nicola would choose this dram over many other blends and it’s label is so well known and iconic.
Nicola has a bottle of this in her cabinet and would recommend all our readers to try and buy one or two, and remember to tell them the Whisky Boys sent you.
