Eight Single Malts, no compromises.

You have to be a bit cheeky to name your Whisky “The Exceptional.” Not just “Exceptional Whisky” or “Exceptionally Good Whisky”… but “THE Exceptional.” Well spirits industry veteran Don Sutcliffe founded Sutcliffe & Son to fulfill his thirty years of producing his own line of Scotch. He partnered with Willie Phillips — managing director of The Macallan for 23 years — to create The Exceptional brand. Based in America, they use their exceptional connections to acquire exceptional barrels of spirits and finish them in exceptional Sherry casks to make their - The Exceptional Whiskies. And they all are… exceptional, that is.

Do you think that you know your Single Malt Whiskies? Here’s a list for you: Glefarclas, Ben Nevis, Alt-á-Bhainne, Auchroisk, Clenallachie, Westport, Speyside, and a 30 YO Macallan. It reads like a who’s-Who of Single Malt loveliness. Picking a favorite is like choosing between your bucket list travel destinations… it’s really a no-lose scenario. But with The Exceptional Malt you don’t have to choose. All eight of these lovelies have been blended, married, and finished in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks. It’s like a dream dram come true, but dreams come to an end — there will only be 1000 bottles released.

What does The Exceptional Malt taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in The Exceptional Malt and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Shawna,
Too oaky and smokey.
Matt
Matt,
I had this at a tasting and it was delightful.
Jefferey
Jefferey,
Deep dark flavors, needs a bit of water to open up. Molasses. Ginger. Almost a bit of sherry brandy way deep in the finish. The sherry casks come through, the age speaks softly. A very fine dram.

Jeffrey,
Shared with a friend. One loved it, the other hated it. Reminds me of other scotch that I really like
