Old Smuggler Blended Scotch Whisky
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland|
Old Smuggler is a blended Scotch Whisky with a history that goes back to 1835. Its fine, smooth taste is due to its being specially blended from the finest of Scotch whiskies in the tradition of 18th century Smugglers who risked their life and honour to share its taste with their loyal customers throughout the islands. Today Old Smuggler is sold in over 20 markets with significant presence in the US, where it is the 8th largest selling Scotch, an important position in Argentina where it is the 2nd selling whisky, and strong sales in Eastern Europe.
The initial whiffs find soft, biscuit and sugar-cookie scents; aeration adds deeper aromas of cereal, honey, yeast and light caramel. Fat and creamy at palate entry, then toffee on the midpalate. Finishes up mildly spicy and oaky. A terrific bargain that first became fashionable during Prohibition. Best Buy.
