Proof66 Notes

The Buchanan Red Seal scotch is their ultra-premium offering aged whisky. It is said that it is a recreation of the 1901 version that James Buchanan himself created to celebrate the coronation of King Edward VII--hence, the red seal. In the 2015 re-packaging, the 21 year age statement was dropped... a practice among whisky producers that is becoming increasingly, depressingly common.

The 2013 Beverage Testing Institute found it to be a "true blend of all the regions."

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.
