Whyte & Mackay, 1 Litre
The secret behind the award-winning taste of Whyte & Mackay is their triple maturation process and the way they blend to make sure no single whisky dominates another, creating a harmony of flavours that work together to produce their famous smoother, richer taste.
The story begins with choosing the finest aged single malts and aged grain whiskies from two of Scotland's most famous distilling regions, Highland and Speyside. Then they carefully age the malt whisky whilst separately aging the grain whisky. Most blended whiskies stop at this stage but Whyte and Mackay add an additional step.
The final chapter of the maturation story sees the marrying of these two different whiskies in sherry casks. This triple maturation process produces a whisky rich in colour with golden highlights, round and full on the nose with smooth, rich flavours of honey and fruits.
Colour: Rich mahogany gold with glittering amber.
Nose: Smooth with warm appealing highlights of marzipan, Manuka honey, creamy caramel and Demerara sugar, followed by whispers of glazed pineapple, cider apples and praline chocolate.
Taste: It begins with mellow and exhilarating flavours of tropical fruits, rose hip syrup, caramelized orange segments and macaroons and finishes with peaches in syrup, liquorice and Seville marmalade.
