A very special 1971-vintage blended malt: the pinnacle of The Decades range of whiskies, all bottled in honour of The Whisky Exchange's co-founders' family's 50th year of working in the drinks industry. This is a great whisky to close out the range, with five decades of maturation creating huge complexity without hiding the underlying spirit. The result is a fruity and softly spicy dram that's laden with sweet vanilla and sponge cake notes as well as layers of fruit, both fresh and dried. A cracking celebration whisky.Tasting Notes (1)
While the history of The Whisky Exchange starts in 1999, the story of co-founders Sukhinder and Rajbir’s family goes back decades further – this year we are celebrating their 50th year of working in the world of drinks. Back in the 1970s, their parents – Narinder and Bhupinder – founded The Nest, an off-license in Hanwell in west London. It grew over the next couple of decades to be a destination for spirits lovers worldwide, and Sukhinder and Rajbir continued the business online to create The Whisky Exchange. To celebrate, we’ve worked with some of the friends they’ve made over the years around the world to bottle a collection of exclusive whiskies that shows the family’s aim from day one – to introduce people to great-tasting drinks, no matter where they are from.

Shortbread with honey and combs of beeswax. The shortbread becomes more buttery and spread with apple and sultana jam. Spiced vanilla sponge cake pokes out around the edges, balanced by unsweetened whipped cream and savoury vanilla.
Soft fruit leads, with apples and pears joined by barely ripe mango, slightly crunchy pineapple and fruit jelly sweets. Vanilla cream rolls in, followed by a dusting of baking spice. Wax-polished oak sits underneath alongside sponge cake and buttered toast.
Honey and beeswax are joined by sweet candied lemons and more buttered toast.
