The James Buchanan Company is a scotch whisky "merchant"--a company that purchases and blends lots of scotch whisky to make their own signature blend labels. The company is named for James Buchanan (actually Canadian born returning back across the Atlantic and settling in London) who founded the company in 1884 and today markets a number of scotch labels. The company purchased a number of distilleries before itself becoming part of different conglomerates.The brand itself is owned by Diageo.

3.9/5, I like it. For the price range it's perfect. Well rounded, a touch of honeyed sweetness (American oak??). But mostly it's just really easy going. No big finish, not hugely complex, but a perfect commercial blend. If you like this you'll love the 18. Great range, great age progression, perfect bar malt, please try!
