Moidart Profile

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Independent bottler Wm Cadenhead named its blended malt brand after the remote area of the west coast of Scotland where Bonnie Prince Charlie landed in 1745. The event inspired the Gaelic song, My King has landed in Moidart (Thainig mo Rìghsa air tìr am Mùideart), lyrics that appear on labels of Moidart blended malt. 

The expression was bottled at 46% abv and at six ages: 10, 12, 15, 21, 25 and 30 years. As with all Cadenhead bottlings, no colouring or chill-filtering was used in its production, and reputedly it contained only Springbank and Bruichladdich malts.

Moidart History

Wm Cadenhead was founded in 1842 in Aberdeen, although it was long after the company’s sale to Springbank owner J. & A. Mitchell & Co. that Moidart first appeared.

The blended malt was produced largely during the 1980s and ‘90s, though is now discontinued.
