To toast the start of Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky has launched two new limited edition blended Scotch whiskies, an 18 and 21 Year Old. Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky has introduced the additional expressions as an extension to the range that currently features the popular 8yo blend, described by Jim Murray as a ‘superstar whisky that gives us all reason to live’. A fruity and well-balanced 12yo and a limited edition, elegant 50yo, of which only 400 bottles were ever produced, complete the selection.
Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky is owned by one of Scotland’s leading, independent, family-owned distillers, Ian Macleod Distillers. Neil Boyd, Commercial Director of Malts for Ian Macleod Distillers, said, “The Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky range was created based on a 19th century family recipe that blends distinctive peaty Island and mellow Speyside malts. Unusually for blends, each whisky in the recipe has been aged for a minimum of eight years.”
