Badachro Distillery has introduced two new limited edition expressions to its Bad na h-Achlaise range of single malt whiskies.
Bad na h-Achlaise Ruby Port Finish Cask Strength is limited to just 30 bottles, making it a true collector’s item. The intensely flavoured 57.9% spirit is bottled from individually nosed and selected Ruby Port casks, blending the purity of an unpeated Highland whisky with the depth and sweetness of fruity, first-fill ex-ruby port casks.
Joining it is the Bad na h-Achlaise Madeira Cask expression. A total of 1,900 bottles are available of the latest in the Highland distillery’s experimental cask series, which combines Highland whisky with the complexity and sweetness of fruity, first-fill, individually nosed and selected madeira casks.
“The Madeira Cask expression is a light and drinkable dram packed with flavours of red cherries, a hint of bitter chocolate and strawberry sherbets – while the Ruby Port Finish Cask Strength malt intensifies the popular fruity flavours of the regular strength variety,” said Gordon Quinn, Managing Director of Badachro.
“Experimenting with different casks allows us to highlight and amplify different flavours in our whisky, meaning each has its own, truly unique flavour profile.”
Bad na h-Achlaise Ruby Port Finish Cask Strength is available only from the distillery shop at a cost of £145.00 while the Bad na h-Achlaise Madeira Cask is available selected stockists at around £56.95.
