Righ Seumas Profile

Blended Scotch Whisky

Named for King James I, Rìgh Seumas I is a vatting of 10-year-old Bruichladdich with older malts from Auchentoshan, Old Rhosdhu (produced at Loch Lomond), Arran and Tobermory.

The malts were matured in a variety of Madeira, French wine and ex-Bourbon casks before being vatted together and finished in first-fill Bourbon. The combination of casks and distillery characters creates a fruity, sweet and spiced flavour profile.

Producer Murray McDavid has also gone one step further and produced a blend – Rìgh Seumas II – using Rìgh Seumas I as a base. To the vatting it has added an eight-year-old single grain from Invergordon distillery to create a lighter, sweeter and more vanilla-centred expression.

Both whiskies are bottled at 46% abv without chill filtration.
