About Buchanan's 15 Year Old Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
On August 16, 1849, James Buchanan was born in Ontario, Canada. The son of Scottish immigrants, his family returned to the United Kingdom while Buchanan and his siblings were still children. As teenagers, Buchanan and his brother began working as grain exporters in Glasgow and at the age of thirty, James moved to London and began working as a whisky merchant.
While in London, Buchanan quickly realized that there was an untapped English demand for blended Scotch whisky and opened the doors to James Buchanan & Co. Today, Buchanan's company represents one of the oldest and most prestigious whisky blenders in the world (in 1898, Buchanan was given the Royal Warrant, which allowed him to supply Buchanan's Whisky to Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales).
Buchanan's Select is the personal creation of Craig Wallace, Buchanan's Master Blender. This whisky is an expression of his expertise and acumen, showcasing the finest craftsmanship, by choosing the most quality whiskies. Expect a twist of peat smoke, a hint of rich fruit and a touch of smooth barley malt.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
