About The Feathery Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Aside from whisky, there may be no other tradition as sacred to Scottish culture as golf. In the game’s early days, balls were hand-crafted with goose feathers (as many as could fit in a gentleman’s top hat), tar and bird skin, creating a perfectly rounded ball that was more streamlined and effective than the previously used leather balls. The downside, however, was that the new balls — appropriately dubbed “featheries” — were extremely time-consuming and costly to produce. As such, two spotters were required on the course at all times to ensure the featheries weren’t lost.
The Feathery Blended Malt Scotch Whisky pays homage to the traditional Scottish craftsmanship that went into making each feathery ball. The whisky is produced by blending three Highland single malts — Tamdhu, Glengoyne and Glendronach — which have been matured 8-10 years in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks.
As a result, The Feather Blended Malt Scotch Whisky has an intense aroma of chocolate, raisins, leather and mixed nuts. Flavors of orange candy, toffee, malt and black cherry dominate the palate, and lead to a finish accented with oak, licorice and dates.

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.
