As the label suggests, this is some very old whisky. The 12 year old Ballantine's released circa 1970s/1980s.

There will be many opinions referring to the time period of Whisky Production in Scotland that could be referred to as "The Golden Age of Whisky." There is a time however that without doubt was special and considered by many that period.

The whisky made early 60s-70s with direct firing of stills, the abundant use of Golden Promise Barley, a slower more deliberated approach to production and even a more generous portion of malts in blends of the period ,all lead to a treasure of never again to be repeated whiskies. We refer to this as the "The Golden Era of whisky."

Watch for whiskies from Turmeaus that is identified as such and give it careful consideration when you feel like a rare and special dram
