Distell, one of Africa’s largest producers of wines, spirits, and ciders, has released six limited-edition malt whiskies for 2018.
The company says that the new releases ‘represent the four distilleries in the Distell portfolio’.
The product line includes: Tobermory 2005 (12-year-old) Fino Cask Finish; Ledaig 1998 (19-year-old) Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish; Ledaig 1998 (19-year-old) PX Cask Finish; Deanston 2008 Brandy Cask Finish; Bunnahabhain 2008 Mòine Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Matured; and Bunnahabhain Palo Cortado Cask Finish.
The recommended retail prices for the line range from £60 to £275.
Derek Scott, brand director for Distell’s Malt Whisky commented: “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.”
The new 2018 range encompasses a range of flavour profiles to suit a multitude of tastes. Ledaig 1998 is said to have a ‘sweet, smoky character’; and Tobermory 2005 has a ‘spicy, chocolatey’ taste according to Distell. Additionally, the company has utilised the hybrid whisky trend in its Bunnahabhain 2008, which has been matured in Bordeaux red wine casts.
