About Buchanan's Special Reserve 18 Year Old 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).

"In keeping up with the pioneering spirit of James Buchanan," says Maureen Robinson, the distillery's master blender, "Buchanan's Special Reserve was born." Buchanan's Special Reserve 18 Year Old Scotch Whisky is a blend of 15 unique whiskies, including Dalwhinnie, each of which have aged for a minimum of 18 years. "Dalwhinnie is a delicate, sweet, malt whisky," Robinson adds, and contributes a honeyed, toffee flavor to Buchanan's.

Buchanan's Special Reserve has a deep amber color, along with an aroma of chocolate, cocoa and toffee. The aroma gives way to notes of fruits (particularly red plums), orange and roasted nuts on the palate, and leads to a finish of honeyed oak, coffee and vanilla.

The whisky earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2009, where it was named the "Best Blended Scotch Whisky," In addition, it earned the Double Gold Medal in 2013, and a score of 95 points from the Beverage Testing Institute. It was also named the "Best Blended Scotch Whisky" at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2012.

"Buchanan's Special Reserve is a special blend for special friends," says Robinson. Pick up a special whisky today!

About Scotch

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.
