Scalasaig Tobermory 2013 Single Distillery Vintage (46.5% ABV) is an 8 Year Old single malt, comprised of four casks which were all distilled and filled at the Isle of Mull based Tobermory Distillery in 2013.
These latest releases, follow the announcement that Scalasaig Blended Malt scooped a 93 point silver medal at the International Wines & Spirits Competition 2022.
Having just launched the brand in Switzerland and, from next month, Australia, the company is preparing further launches in 2022 and beyond, both for its Blended Malt and named distillery single casks and vintages.
Commenting on the launch, Keith Bonnington, Company Director, said: “The Island Hopper represents our journey to uncover hidden treasures from some of the best island and coastal Scotch Whisky distilleries, shining a light on the varied styles that these producers are known for. The whisky itself has gone through a rigorous sampling process before bottling, to ensure that the quality is the best it can be. There will be no set style, rather an exploration of all that the islands have to offer from heavily-peated to sweet and light but each one with its own maritime character.”
Scalasaig Island Hopper Jura 1992 Single Cask (limited to less than 200 bottles) and Scalasaig Tobermory 2013 Single Distillery Vintage (limited to 1,450 bottles) will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s of £245.00 and £67.00.
