Whyte & Mackay has launched a campaign that will give consumers the opportunity to win a rare bottle of 50-year-old blended Scotch whisky estimated to be worth £5,000.

The whisky is being released as part of the whisky maker’s 175th birthday celebrations and can be won by buying a special bottle of the company’s blended whisky, that has a unique code which, when uploaded online, will allow consumers to enter into a monthly draw.

Whyte & Mackay 50 Years Old has been matured in an assemblage of the finest Bourbon barrels, first and second fill Matusalem sherry butts, Tawny Port Pipes and finally in 30 years old ‘Apostoles’ sherry butts from the bodegas of Gonzalez Byass in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain.

Each element of its long maturation has given the whisky an intense yet flavourful taste profile boasting hints of macerated plums and Manuka honey, along with sticky toffee pudding and freshly baked banana bread. It’s being hailed as a must-have for whisky fans and collectors alike and is bottled at natural colour and cask strength 44.6% vol.

Their release of this rare 50-year-old comes as part of a very busy birthday year for Whyte & Mackay. Earlier in 2019, they unveiled a new look bottle and launched Whyte & Mackay Light – a premium spirit drink at 21.5% ABV.
