This latest blended malt Scotch whisky has been crafted from single malt produced within 39.8 mile radius of Dornoch distillery. 5 casks in total from Clynelish and Glen Ord distillery have been combined in a refill sherry butt for a resting period of 'more than a day but less than a year'. 

'An exceptional value deal'.

Looks like a lot of fun has been had making this latest blend but we're expecting nothing more than a serious and tasty dram from the good folk at Thompson Bros.
