The Blended Whisky Company XL
Crafted exclusively using whiskies aged for at least 40 years, The XL Blend is far more than the age the roman numerals suggest, it's undoubtedly 'extra large' in flavour too. Think rich, dried fruits and sweet brioche, topped with nuts and a long, smooth finish that lingers with notes of vanilla and oak.
Only 1,000 bottles available worldwide.
Available to pre-order now and to buy from 21st December.
You can buy this blended whisky for £548.95 at Master of Malt
Tasting notes supplied by The Blened Whisky Company

Finish: Long smooth finish that lingers on with pronounced notes of vanilla and oak.
