Blended Scotch Whisky

Scotland

40%

Description

A very old bottle of Black & White blended Scotch whisky. We estimate this was bottled in the first decade of the 1900s.

The label carries a Royal Warrant by Appointment to His Majesty The King and HRH the Prince of Wales.

The back label reads:
"BLACK & WHITE."
SELECT COMMITTEE.
At The British and Foreign Spirits Select Committee, appointed by the Government in 1890, under the presidency of Lord (then Dr.) Playfair, Dr. Bell, C.B., the Chief Analytical Chemist of the Government spoke in terms of high appreciation of a sample of Scotch Whisky, saying "From the general fine character of the sample there is reason to believe that it has been warehoused for many years etc." Fifteen Years Later the Medical Magazine (October 1905) says "The statement made by Dr. Bell is as true to-day as it was then."
