Diageo, has announced the launch of a new limited-edition 30 Year Old expression, from its Mortlach Distillery.

Mortlach 30 Year Old - Midnight Malt (49.1% ABV) is a single malt Scotch whisky, which was initially matured in refill American oak and European oak casks, then finished in a combination of Bordeaux wine, Calvados and Guatemalan rum seasoned casks, before then being married in custom quarter casks.

This latest release from the Speyside based distillery, which has been described by the brand as a rich, deep whisky, to slowly savour in the darker hours, is said to deliver notes including pork crackling sprinkled with dry sage, apple and black pepper.

Commenting on the launch, Dr Craig Wilson, Diageo Master of malt, said: “There is an art and science to the creation of whisky, born of an unabating quest to wield flavour – a journey that is complex, evolving into unknown directions, only to finally reveal itself as the patient labour of visionary at work.”

Limited to 350 bottles, Mortlach 30 Year Old - Midnight Malt, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £3,700.
