FATHER'S DAY WHISKY TASTING!
Today Ryan Judson takes us on a journey to Scotland, with a special tasting of Usquaebach whiskies, just in time for Father's Day! Usquaebach (pronounced “oos-ke-bah”), or "water of life" in Gaelic, is a historic brand that embodies the ancient traditions of the Scottish Highlands, as well as being the word from which we derive the English word "whisky". Their blend dates back to the 1700s, with a focus on purity, refinement and elegance. Usquaebach's blenders seek out the best malts and grains from reputable distillers throughout Scotland, and have earned a longstanding reputation as the standard bearer of blended whiskies. Enjoy these at a 5% discount Saturday!
Usquaebach Reserve Premium Blended Scotch Whisky
Country: SCOTLAND / Region: N/A / Appellation: N/A / Varietal(s): N/A --- Usquaebach Reserve Premium Blended Scotch is a whisky that deftly balances elegance and structure. Featuring over 50% single malts each aged between 16-18 years and blended with fine grain whisky, the result displays a nose of honeyed sherry, with hints of vanilla, baked apples, and quince, accented by sweet spices and a touch of zest lingering on the palate. A long, smooth finish with a precise mouthfeel makes this an ideal aperitif or accompaniment to a rich meal.
Usquaebach 15 Year Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Country: SCOTLAND / Region: N/A / Appellation: N/A / Varietal(s): N/A
--- Usquaebach 15-Year Blended Malt brings together some of the finest Highland single malts, aged carefully for at least 15 years (some as old as 20), in oak and sherry casks. Elegant yet masculine, this robust Scotch brings forth enticing aromas of sun-dried fruits, pineapple and espresso, with baking spices, intense richness, and luxurious sweetness on the palate. A great way to explore the complexity and depth of blended whisky (especially for single malt drinkers)!
Usquaebach "Old Rare" Blended Scotch Whisky
Country: SCOTLAND / Region: N/A / Appellation: N/A / Varietal(s): N/A --- Usquaebach “Old Rare” Blended Scotch Whisky is a delicacy recognized by connoisseurs worldwide, including being served at the 1969 and 1989 US Presidential Inaugural Dinners. The porcelain flagon it comes in is a vestige of whisky history, a reminder of a time preceding bottled spirits when traveling merchants would mix the best spirits from single distilleries together to create unique blends. This bombshell blend is based on 41 specially selected single malts (up to 20 years old) from the Highlands, with the addition of a mere 15% high-quality grain whisky. A true classic, this offers up layer upon opulent layer on the palate, with delicate flavors of white pepper, coffee, brushed leather and lemon zest, and a luxurious, lingering finish.
