Usquaebach Flagon Ceramic Old Rare Blended Scotch Whisky
Usqueabach(pronounced Oos:Ke:Bah) is the ancient name derived from the Scotish Gaelic Uisge Beatha or 'The water of life'...we now know it as whisky." 41 different single malts used, the oldest is 20 years Producer information Usquaebach (pronounced whisk-ay-bay) Original has gone through several incarnations since it was first created in 1768. From 1768 to 1842 it was a single malt. Between 1842 and 1904 it became a vatted Scotch whisky (a blend of single malts, often from different years from the same distiller, but never any grain whisky). Then, in 1904, it became a ‘malt-rich’ blend, where 85% of the blend was malt whisky and 15% was grain whisky. An American company, 12 Stone Flagons bought the distillery in 1973. Starting in the 1980s they began to release a line of aged Highland Single Malt whiskies to broaden their product base. Though it may be a ‘changeling’, the Original is still and always has been, the company’s flagship.
The Usquaebach Old-Rare Superior Blend is comprised of 41 exceptional Single Malt Scotch whiskies and 2 of the Highland’s finest Grain whiskies. The ‘Old-Rare’ Blend uses more malt in its blend than most premium blended whiskies produced anywhere in the world. The availability of the Usquaebach Rare-Old are limited by the rarity and expense of the whiskies used in the blend. This superior blend offers multi-layered opulence on the pallet, concentrated flavors of pepper, coffee, and sherry daz- zle the taste buds. The sublime mid-palate and long, heav- enly aftertaste are remarkably balanced, supple and graceful
