Distell unveils new single malts from Bunnahabhain, Tobermory, Ledaig and Deanston
Distell has unveiled six new limited-edition malt whiskies from a range of distilleries it owns across Scotland.
From Islay it has launched a £275 Bunnahabhain expression finished in a Palo Cortado cask, along with Bunnahabhain Mòine 2008, which is finished in a Bordeaux red wine cask and retails for £75.
Tobermory, the only distillery on the picturesque Hebridean Isle of Mull, has released a 12 Year Old expression finished in a fino sherry cask, retailing for £110. It is said to have notes of toffee, espresso and dark chocolate, rich fruit and citrus, balanced with the dry influence of the Fino sherry.
Ledaig, which is distilled at Tobermory, has released two 1998 expressions. One is finished in an Olorosso sherry cask and has an rrp of £130, while the other is finished in a Pedro Ximenez cask for a sweet, syrupy mouthfeel, and it retails for £150.
Finally, Distell has revealed Deanston 2008, which hails from the Highlands and is finished in a brandy cask. It sells for £60.
Derek Scott, brand director for Distell’s malt whisky portfolio, said: “Each of these new releases is unique. They tell their own story of where they came from, by maintaining the flavour profiles known to each of the brands, while having individual enhancements from being finished in carefully selected casks for their final maturation.”
