New Scotch Whisky Releases From Terlato Distell Artisan SpiritsNovember 30, 2016
Terlato Distell Artisan Spirits, the spirits joint venture between Terlato Wines and South Africa’s Distell Group, has released four limited-edition Scotch whiskies in the U.S. market. Highlighting the group is Tobermory 42-year-old (47.7%-abv, $4,500-$5,000). Tobermory is one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries and the only one on the Isle of Mull. Only 222 bottles of Torbermory 42-year-old are available in the United States, from a global total of 650 bottles.
The new releases also include the 1996 Ledaig single malt (46.3%-abv, $159) from Tobermory distillery, a peated vintage malt whisky finished in Sherry casks. 1996 marks the first year the distillery began producing peated single malt whisky. Some 700 cases of 1996 Ledaig are being sold in the U.S. market.
Also being launched is the Bunnahabhain 13-year-old Marsala Finish (46.3%-abv, $85.99), aged in ex-Bourbon casks for 10 years and finished in Marsala wine casks for three years. This whisky was made exclusively for the U.S., with only 250 cases available.
The last of the four new releases is Deanston Organic 14-year-old (46%-abv, $89.99), the distillery’s first-ever organic expression. The whisky is made with Scottish ingredients and was aged in organic virgin oak casks. Some 1,000 cases of Deanston 14-year-old are in this year’s release. —David FlemingSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
