According to Classic Blended Scotch by Jim Murray, Passport is a blend of more flavored highland malts with lighter and sweet lowland whiskies, made at Seagram's Speyside distilleries.[2] The particular blend used in Passport Scotch was first produced in the 1960s by master blender Jimmy Lang, of Seagram's Scottish subsidiary Chivas Brothers, and started being sold in 1965.[3] It sold 1.7 million bottles in 2015, being a strong performer in Brazil (where it is second on the Scotch whisky market), Portugal, Poland, Spain, Mexico and India.[2]
