The 2022 edition of The Whisky Exchange's festive whisky is a classic seasonal dram – a good old-fashioned Christmas whisky.

Tasting Notes (1)
A Good Old-Fashioned Christmas Whisky

Our 2022 Christmas blend:

The Grains

We’ve blended barrels of Strathclyde with butts of Cameronbridge to provide an elegant old backbone to our Christmas whisky.

Strathclyde:
Built in Glasgow in 1927 on the site of an old cotton mill, this distillery is now owned by Chivas Brothers and provides delicate, floral Lowland grain for their blends.

Cameronbridge:
Founded just over a century before Strathclyde, Cameronbridge is the largest grain distillery in Europe and is known to many as the maker of Haig Club. Independent bottlings of Cameronbridge are often prized for their toffee, vanilla and cereal notes.

Our 2022 Christmas blend:

The Malts

We’ve used three different single malts in our blend, drawn from a variety of casks, to add layers of festive complexity.

Glen Elgin:
The distillery has been making whisky — on and off — since 1900, and although still something of a hidden gem it has been bottled as a lushly fruity single malt in both the Flora and Fauna range and Diageo’s Special Releases.

Linkwood:
A distillery close to our co-founder Sukhinder Singh’s heart, Linkwood is just an hour’s walk from its Speyside neighbour Glen Elgin and has been producing citrussy, apple-y, spicy whisky since 1824.

Blair Athol:
This Highland distillery has been operating for more than two centuries and was originally named Aldour. Today, most of its production goes into the Bell’s blend, but single malt bottlings often focus on the effect of sherry casks on this rich, weighty spirit.

Exploring

the flavours of Christmas

This whisky has been specifically blended to evoke the flavours which remind us of a good old-fashioned Christmas. There’s Christmas Cake: all the flavours of a rich, brandy-soaked fruitcake covered in marzipan and icing, spiced raisins that seem lifted straight out of a particularly juicy mince pie, and decorative chocolates stolen off the tree. Rounding it all off is Boxing Day ramble through mulchy leaves in the forest — all that’s missing is snow.

    Anonymous,

    I dare say that this is one of the best whiskeys I've tasted. Light fragrance, sweet and oh, so smooth and delicious. Stock up, it's the best Christmas edition thus far.

    Erlendur Geir Arnarson,

    Christmas in a bottle. Feels like drinking an English Christmas cake with lots of ripe plums. Truly sets you in the Cristmas spirit, already in November.

    James,

    Great purchase. Entirely agree with the stated tasting notes. A boozy Christmas cake in a glass, the grain being the icing sugar.

    Declan Francis W Jr.,

    five stars just for the tasting notes. You did repeat glacé in both the nose and palate sections. Furthermore, you didn't use a french word in the finish section... I will stick with my gut and go with five stars. An appropriate level of regards, D
