Distell launches new limited malt collection

This year’s releases include two unique expressions each from Bunnahabhain and Ledaig and one each from Deanston and Tobermory.

Distell, the owners of Bunnahabhain, Deanston, Tobermory and Ledaig have just announced a collection of limited edition single malts for 2018.

In September, the company will host it’s first malt whisky showcase in London where the six new releases will be unveiled as part of an exhibition tasting event.

We’re looking forward to trying a few of them if we get the chance; the Bunnahabhain Palo Cortado Cask Finish and Deanston 2008 Brandy Cask Finish both catching the eye.

The other expressions in the collection are:

  • Tobermory 2005 Fino Cask Finish
  • Ledaig 1998 Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish
  • Ledaig 1998 PX Cask Finish
  • Bunnahabhain 2008 Mòine Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Matured.

Derek Scott from Distell said:

“This has been a revolutionary year for our malt portfolio. We’re lucky to have three very different distilleries and this showcase will allow us to share the stories of each and highlight how these are reflected in the bold new releases.

Kirstie, our lead blender, has been working with each distillery to create these unique whiskies. Using the flavour profile each brand is known for as the guide to select the finishing casks, we’ve been able to create six limited release whiskies that are not just of interest for their points of difference but are also fantastic drams that remain true to the whisky’s style.”
