New Scotch from Bruichladdich

August 21, 2008, 5:11 pm

Scottish whisky producer Bruichladdich has launched the second edition of its 18-year-old single malt.

The Bruichladdich Islay Scotch has been matured in oak casks from the French wine-producing region of Jurancon, in the Pyrenees mountains, Scotland Food & Drink reports.

Designed to complement the original, Bruichladdich managing director Mark Reynier explained: “The first bottling went so fast. We wanted a subtle contrast with this new version, while retaining the toasted French oak nose, voluptuously mellow body and hint of tropical fruit.”

He added that the new edition has a golden hue to match its complex, balanced flavour.

The whisky is distributed by Malcolm Cowan and has a recommended retail price of £50 per bottle.

Fellow Scottish brand The Famous Grouse has also added a new product to its range, in the shape of Snow Grouse – a whisky designed to be served chilled, direct from the freezer.
