Whiskey maker Max McFarlane has over four decades of experience, which made him an ideal candidate to lead The Art of the Blend's first release. The new label will have a different lead for each release, given complete freedom to develop their signature blend. In the case of No. 1, McFarlane blended three first-fill Oloroso sherry casks from Glenrothes, Craigellachie, and Aultmore, mixing them for an IWSC award-winning dram. Limited to just 1968 bottles worldwide.
