Black Tartan Batch 21, a limited edition blend of five Scotch single malts from Inchgower, Teaninich, Benrinnes, Blair Athol and Tormore distilleries.

Black Tartan Batch 21 with Edinburgh Castle in the background.Edinburgh based Skene Whisky has just released the next limited edition instalment of their Black Tartan Scotch Blended Malt Whisky, Black Tartan Batch 21, which is the independent bottler's first blended malt bottling for 2021.

Black Tartan Batch 21 is a blend of five component Scotch single malt whiskies from Highland & Speyside distilleries. The five whiskies are: Inchgower 2008; Teaninich 2008; Benrinnes 2010; Blair Athol 2012; and Tormore 2016. The vatting of the five single malts produced a total of 2,990 70cl bottles which have been bottled non chill-filtered at 40%, although I am told it does contain a small amount of colouring, still an intriguing blend of Highland and Speyside malts and great to see a bottler willing to bottle non chill-filtered at this strength, I wish more bottlers would do it.

Black Tartan describe it as the latest example of their dedication to quality over quantity in the blended malt whisky category. Created in Elgin over the Winter of 2020/21 the whisky, presented in a dark glass bottle which does make you wonder 'why the colouring?'.

Black Tartan Batch 21 is said to offer balanced sweetness, they describe it as fresh and spicy on the nose and say it offers vanilla and butterscotch on the palate and a smooth, sweet and warming finish.

Black Tartan Batch 21 is just £38 for a 70cl bottle and is now available from Skene Whisky’s online shop at https://www.skenewhisky.com/product/black-tartan-batch21/

You will also find Skene's everyday Black Tartan blend available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
