Scotch whisky has a rich array of stories, myths and legends.
For Myths & Legends III we have taken some of the same parcels of malt whisky used in Myths & Legends II and added peated malt whiskies from a pair of celebrated island distilleries. Some would object to our actions on principle.
Famous single malts are always too precious for blending, they say; the sanctity of the category seems to take precedence over quality.
However, thanks to our parcels of well regarded malt whiskies, the tropical fruit and butterscotch notes of Myths & Legends II are now further enriched by a deep and enchantingly aromatic smoke profile.
Never blend the famous names? The breadth of generous and complex flavours found in Myths & Legends III dismantles such superstitious thinking.
