100 Pipers is a blended Scotch whisky that belongs to the upper premium whisky segment. It is an extremely popular brand of Scotch in many countries especially in Asian countries where the demand for Scotch whisky is astronomical.
The brand’s philosophy and even their name is based off a Scottish legend which dictates ‘When you taste a good whisky, you head a piper play but when you taste a truly exceptional whisky, you can hear a 100 pipers play.’
The foundations of the 100 Pipers brand were laid in 1949 by Jimmy Lang and Master Blender at Chivas Regal, Alan Baillie, slowly introducing the brand worldwide. It was first released in the United States in 1965 and gradually all over the world. The 100 Pipers brand was launched in India in 1995, and continues to be a popular blended Scotch whisky in one of the largest whisky consuming markets.
The 100 Pipers brand has always been in great demand in Asian countries such as Thailand, Venezuela, Spain, Australia and India, where it happens to be the market leader in its category.
100 Pipers 12-Year-Old is a blend of malt and grain whiskies, with a significant proportion of their fingerprint whisky sourced from Allt a’Bhainne distillery from the Speyside. Other source whiskies are added to the 100 Pipers blend in different proportions resulting in the smooth, and flavorful whisky.
It contains only the finest and carefully selected batches of malt and grain whiskies which are finished in impeccable Oak barrels. The youngest whisky used in this expression carries an age-statement of 12 years which reflects the smooth palate of the 100 Pipers 12-Year-Old. The presence of a predominant Speyside fingerprint whisky also lends the blend a fruity palate and floral nose.
The alcohol strength carried by 100 Pipers 12-Year-Old is 40% ABV, the permissible limit for Scotch whiskies.
