The origins of the Whyte & Mackay's 'Double Lion' blend lies in the Glasgow firm of Allan & Poynter, founded in November 1843 by John Poynter, and William Allan.
The firm’s initial business was in warehousing goods for the grocery trade. In due course the business changed hands and the new owner, William Scott recruited, James Whyte and Charles Mackay as bonded warehousemen.
Whyte & Mackay 30 Years Old Scotch Whisky Tasting Notes
Colour: Bright, golden mahogany.
Nose: Deep and mellow. The sherry wood exposes itself immediately. Hearty and grand. The weight of the Speyside Malts linger in graceful harmony.
Taste: A classic refined flavour brought about by its many years in wood. A blend of this age must be drunk with respect - slow, not hurried. Each flavour must be given time to reveal its many fine qualities - rich and mellow, elegant and distinguished. All these excellent attributes are captured on the tongue leaving the palate rewarded and satisfied.
It takes 30 long years to create this masterpiece but only seconds to recognise its outstanding quality.
