Bailie Nicol Jarvie Blended Whisky
Bailie Nicole Jarvie // Scotland
Bailie Nicol Jarvie is a blended Scotch whisky produced by the Glenmorangie Company. Although the label fell into disuse in 2014 as consequence of the expanding market for malt whiskies (i.e. the opportunity cost of bottling their malts in blends became too high), Glenmorangie's parent company still does own the brand. This is a blend of malt and grain whiskies (a 60:40 ratio of malt:grain) sourced from Speyside, in the Scottish Highlands, and from Islay. Mortlach, Benrinnes, Linkwood, and Mannochmore have been mentioned specifically by Master Blender Bill Lumsden as some of the malts used in the blend. In early 2016, Lumsden stoked rumors of a revival; however, he gave no specific timeline. Bottled at 40% ABV.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
