Distell Unveil Limited Release Malt Collection 2019

27th June 2019
Distell has unveiled its second batch of annual Limited Edition Releases, this year they have released eight single malts originating from their Bunnahabhain, Deanston and Tobermory (Ledaig) distilleries.

Distell, owner of Bunnahabhain, Deanston and Tobermory/Ledaig distilleries has unveiled its second batch of annual releases and this year the line up features three unique expressions from Bunnahabhain, three from Deanston and two from Tobermory (one Tobermory and one Ledaig expression).

All eight of the whiskies in this years limited release Malt Collection have under went a cask finish and all have been bottled at cask strength offering whisky enthusiasts something off the normal beaten track of the core range of whiskies available from Distell's three Scotch malt whisky distilleries, something which previously you would have only found available from independent bottlers but the difference here must surely be that Distell have the best of the best casks to choose from to bottle for their Malt Collection.

Commenting on the new expressions, Derek Scott, Brand Director for Malt Whisky at Distell, said:  "The team surprise us every year with the creation of new and exciting expressions with each distillery having a distinct flavour profile and the team continuing to achieve incredible results with their choice of finishing casks.

"One of my particular favourites this year has to be the Bunnahabhain Vintage Marsala Finish, it has sweet hints of chocolate and caramel that develop into a lingering smoky pepperiness, which is extremely memorable, especially if you can enjoy it on Islay at Bunnahabhain Bay overlooking Bunnahabhain Bay, the Sound of Islay."
