Three New Whiskies From Skene Whisky


10th December 2020
Independent bottler Skene whisky release two first fill Oloroso sherry cask, single cask single malts, one from Tomatin and one from Blair Athol and a peated Islay single malt from Bunnahabhain and all at a reasonable price.

Skene new releases - Tomatin, Blair Athol and Bunnahabhain

Following on from its "Black Tartan 88" Scotch blended malt whisky release in September Edinburgh based independent bottler Skene Whisky has released a trio of “Skene” labelled single malt whisky bottlings.

The trio of affordable single malt whiskies carry no age statement have been released just in time for Christmas, two from Skene's "aged in a sherry cask" range and the third whisky in the trio is a "peated Islay malt".

The first is a single cask Blair Athol 2015 fully matured in a first fill Oloroso sherry cask. Just 246 bottles were filled at an ABV of 48% with natural colour and no chill filtration. The price is only £34 for a 70cl bottle.

The second is a single cask Tomatin 2015 fully matured in a first fill Oloroso sherry cask. Only 186 bottles were filled at a punchy ABV of 50%, again with natural colour and no chill filtration. The price is just £34 a 70cl bottle.

The third and final bottling is a peated Bunnahabhain 2013 single malt (aka “Staoisha) from two casks. Just 504 bottles were filled at an ABV of 48%, yet again with natural colour and no chill filtration. The price is a very modest £42 a bottle.

The three new single malt releases together with earlier Skene bottlings and some aged Macallan's are now available from Skene Scotch Whisky’s online shop

Skene tells me that after a few years away from bottle sales they plan to release a number of new ranges over the next few months - "Skene Reserve", single cask premium bottlings of vintage malt whisky (eg Macallan 30 year old). "Skene Sherry Editions" will be sherry-matured single malts ( normally at 48% ABV) aimed squarely at drinkers. "Skene American Oak Editions" will be ex-bourbon single malt bottlings (again normally at 48% ABV). "Skene Peated Malt Editions" will be peated single malt expressions (yet again normally at 48% ABV).

You will find Skene whisky available from specialist online specialist retailer Master of Malt as well as direct from the Skene website.
