ABV: 43%

Proof: 86

Nose: Sweet corn, smoke, citrus, honey, almonds, and floral notes.

Palate: Rich caramel, vanilla, anise, oak, leather, nutmeg.

Finish: Long, with tart flavors of apricots and apples, and a lingering smoky, spicy flavor.

Overall: This is a fantastic whisky. It is full of character and leaves you wanting more from the first sip. The sweet and spicy flavors play very well together without being overly sweet or overly spicy. The finish is long with plenty of character and a wonderful aftertaste. I really enjoyed this whisky and the flavors that came with it. It is very smooth with just a slight burn to it. A great addition to any whisky lover’s shelf.

History: Syndicate 58/6 Premium Scotch Whisky was founded in 1966 by William Muir
(Bond 9) Limited (Founded in Leith, Scotland in 1823) and the original blend was
distilled in 1954 by Marshall Taplow (Established in London 1760) for their most
important customers.
In the United Kingdom Syndicate 58/6 is a private highly exclusive club made up of
discerning individuals who really appreciate a top quality Scotch Whisky. The
Syndicate members include Members of the House of Lords, High Court Judges and a
wide range of leading professionals from throughout the United Kingdom.
The quality and consistency of the blend is assured by using a ‘Solera’ system
whereby additional whiskies are blended with the older stock. They include 18
single malt whiskies and 4 single grain whiskies. The syndicate 58/6 still contains
small quantities of the original 1958 blend. It is finally married and matured in 4
year old Oloroso Sherry casks which give the whisky its exceptionally smooth and
distinctive taste.
