Old Perth is an old time range of Blended Malt Scotch Whisky which has had its tradition restored by blending in Perth and exclusively using sherry matured malt from a selection of what’s described as Scotland’s finest distilleries, located in the Glenlivet region of Speyside. It was a lost blend that was originally created by Peter Thomson, who began his career in the grocery, wine and spirits business in Perth in 1908, but soon established his own whisky blends.
“We are proud that our Old Perth range of quality blended malt whisky has restored the tradition of blending in Perthshire, once synonymous with so many great whiskies,” Sales Director of Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers Niel Hendriksz said in a prepared statement. “Our new 12 Year Old and Vintage Old Perth releases provide a new experience for whisky fans, showcasing the added depth and complexity that can be achieved when great single malts are blended to create something even more special.”
Both bottlings are available now through select retailers in the UK, with Old Perth Vintage 1996 retailing for £180 ($243.84 USD) and Old Perth 12 Year Old for £45 ($60.96 USD). Official tasting notes can be found below.
