Blended Scotch whisky brand Scottish Leader has launched its first blended malt whisky, a travel retail-exclusive expression comprised of island, Speyside and Highland single malts.
Scottish Leader Blended Malt is a limited edition, no-age-statement whisky bottled at 40% abv, which is said to offer ‘complex layers of rich sweet fruit, honey and vanilla’ with ‘peppery smokiness’ on the palate.
Liezl Dippenaar, Scottish Leader’s global marketing manager, said: ‘The blending team, with nearly 400 years’ combined experience, contributed their specialist skills to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.’
The blended malt will be available exclusively in global travel retail priced at £29.99/€34.90 per one litre bottle.
The first blended malt in the brand’s history, Scottish Leader’s stable of blended whiskies includes a flagship 12-year-old blend alongside no-age-statement peated and honeyed expressions.
The following year the Naked Grouse was also relaunched within the Famous Grouse portfolio as a blended malt.
