The King’s Ransom 12-year-old whisky, produced by William Whiteley & Co., is a blend that has garnered both intrigue and admiration. Let’s delve into its character:

Bottler: William Whiteley & Co. (WW&C)
Stated Age: 12 years old
Strength: 43.0% Vol.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas evoke an old-school ambiance, reminiscent of an ancient library.
Some hints of sap emerge, adding complexity to the experience.


Interestingly, the King’s Ransom 12-year-old whisky does not age further once bottled, so its character remains consistent over time. The company, William Whiteley & Co., has a storied history, and it’s delightful to hear about the small oak cask in their London office, where visitors were offered a dram.


Colour: White wine.

Nose: Very different from all the other old blends. Unusual notes of cologne (it’s pleasant here), furs, violets, orange liqueur and liquorice… Very, very retro. 

Mouth: Very unusual again. Violet sweets, Turkish delights, rosehip tea, oriental pastries, orange blossom, a little cinnamon… And, once again, quite some peat and pepper.

Finish: Medium long, even peatier, with quite some pepper. Very peppery aftertaste.

Comments: funnily antique and unlike any other blend I could try so far. A style of its own.

If you happen to encounter a bottle of this vintage blend, consider savoring its rich heritage and the echoes of bygone eras.
