You will like to know that…

Albertson is a blended Scotch whisky that comes from the heart of Scotland itself. A product of A. Bulloch & Co., a Glasgow-based company first established back in 1856, this fine spirit has been offering consumers excellent value for money for as long as it has been around. This is an extra-special blend that would make an excellent addition to any bar.

Made using a mixture of malt and grain whiskies that are then aged for a minimum of five years, the result is a beautiful, clean, amber whisky that looks like liquid honey in the bottle. This relatively young whisky is 100% Scottish. It is distilled, blended, and bottled in Scotland with the export market in mind. With just five years of ageing, this spirit manages to form an excellent array of flavours and aromas, among which dried fruit, nuts, and vanilla are in the forefront.

Albertson is a dry and intense Scotch whisky that is not as sweet as some similar blends can be on the palate, which is a refreshing change. This makes Albertson perfect for mixing into the whisky-based cocktail of your dreams. If you are looking for an everyday whisky that won't break the bank, try Andersons. It has the quality, flavour, and history that matter.

Description of Albertson 1L

Albertson 1L

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: This Scotch has the average yellow-amber whiskey colouring.
  • Aroma: Oak spices make up the zesty parts of this drink's scent profile. Earthy notes from the grains and malt used to make this drink are also easily noticeable.
  • Taste: The taste of this beverage is similar to the smell, consisting heavily of malted barley and other grains. The long ageing time manifests the oak spices, which provides heat and zest.

PRODUCER: The Dunochter Distillery was founded by John Bulloch in 1817. Throughout the next couple of decades, the distillery changed named several times before it earned the name it currently has, Bulluch Lade & Co. in 1853. This company thrived in Scotland until the start of World War I. The distillery also faced troubles in the early 1920s due to the American Prohibition, which lost them many sales. Because of this, the company was bought out by the DLC, but the brand kept its name. However, the brand was dissolved in 2007 due to poor sales.

COUNTRY: Scotland

PRODUCTION DETAILS: This drink is made with a mix of malt whiskey and a grain whiskey. They are aged together for a minimum of five years before the drink is bottled.

The Producer

Bulloch Lade & Company

In 1817, John Bulloch founded the Dunochter distillery in Dunbartonshire, in the Lowland of Scotland. Years after, when the distillery became a family business, it adopted the name of Bulloch & Co. After the merger with D. Lade & Co, it became the Bulloch Lade Company located in Glasgow. Later in the 18th century, the company expanded its activities acquiring several Islay distilleries becoming a prominent actor in the whiskey scene in Scotland. After the World War I, as coal became more expensive and the Prohibition in the US deprived it from a key market, the company went bankrupt and bought by a consortium which kept the distilleries running.
