And they�re equally as storied. The 58/6 history starts with a rare blend of whiskies discovered in the Port of Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland back in 1958. 10 oak casks held a blend of both Scotch malt and grain whiskies, and their flavors were found to be quite desirable � so much so that six whisky aficionados (including members of the House of Lords) gathered to bottle some of it, and thus coined the name indicating the year (�58) and the founding group (6).,,The Syndicate blend contains 18 Single Malt Whiskies and 4 Single Grain Whiskies. The quality and consistency of the blend has been maintained over the years by operating a �Solera� system whereby when additional 12 year Old whiskies are added they are reblended with the older stock.,,Thus the Syndicate blend still contains small quantities of the original 1958 blend. One of the things that sets the Syndicate blend apart from other blends is that it is �married� and finally matured for up to 2 years in 4 year old Oloroso Sherry casks imported from the Spanish region of Andalucia.,,This final marrying and maturation process serves to give the Syndicate blend its exceptionally smooth and distinctive taste.
