About The Sassenach Blended Scotch Whisky
The Sassenach Blended Scotch is the first product to come from Great Glen and the realization of Heughan’s lifelong dream. He was personally involved in picking the perfect blend of Scotch whiskies for this limited edition release. Matured in casks that used to hold Madeira wine, it has a distinct character, rich aromas and an exceptionally smooth palate that is meant to evoke “ancient peaks, hidden glens, and rising morning mist, fresh water and firm oak”. You can expect notes of citrus, almonds, as well as vanilla, with plenty of sweet and fruity notes including peaches and honey as well as butterscotch on the palate.

About The Sassenach
Scottish actor Sam Heughan of science fiction TV show Outlander and recently released blockbuster Bloodshot fame has long been a fan of whisky. He recently started the company, Great Glen, as a means to share authentic Scottish products with the world. A member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society himself, he has long dreamed of having his very own whisky.
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
