A winner for those that are into rare Whisky blends.

You know us – give us good storytelling and even better Spirits and we don’t need much else. A Scottish independent bottler, FABLE Whisky sources the rarest single cask Whiskies and brings them to you through the art of storytelling, animation, and illustration. Legendary Scottish myths are brought to life and hand-selected Single Malts are found from across Scotland’s best and little-known distilleries. They bottle the Whisky straight from the cask or leave it to further mature to deliver the most exclusive distinct flavors.

Did you know that the origin of the modern-day word ‘Whisky’ comes from the word Usquaebach, pronounced Oos-Ke-Bah, which translates to “Water of Life” in Scottish Gaelic. Steeped in history, The Usquaebach brand was founded in 1877 with its ‘Old-Rare’ recipe dating back to the 1700s. Dedicated to tradition of the craft to this day, Usquaebach’s renowned Master Blender finds the finest Single Malts and aged Grain Whiskies from the most renowned distillers in the Scottish Highlands.

Usquaebach 'Reserve' Blended Scotch Whisky is a rare blend that’s crafted from more than 50% premium Highland Single Malts that were each aged between 16, 17 and 18 years before they were blended with the finest aged Grain Whisky. Aged in ex-Bourbon casks, this dram brings you flavors of soft peat, dried heather, and crisp palate on the smooth palate. The Gold Medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition really came as no surprise.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
