Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers, has announced the launch of the first limited-edition release, from its Mac-Talla Islay Scotch whisky brand.

This latest Mac-Talla release, which is said to further demonstrates the diversity of this iconic island, is the first in a series of limited editions which will feature a range of specially selected cask types and maturation styles.

Commenting on the launch, Niel Hendriksz, Sales Director at Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers, said: “Islay is synonymous with peat and smoke, however through maturation in exceptional wood you can develop different styles and interpretations of that classic Islay smoke. Full maturation in Red Wine Barriques has resulted in an elegant, yet powerful dram with great balance of fruit and smoke.”

Limited to 7,200 bottles, Mac-Talla Red Wine Barriques, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £68.00.
