NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Buchanan's is proud to announce the release of Buchanan's Select 15-Year-Old Blended Malt Scotch Whisky as a permanent addition to the acclaimed Buchanan's portfolio. A first of its kind in the Buchanan's collection, it is a blend of fine Single Malt Scotch Whiskies from the heart of Scotland. Buchanan's Select has been matured for at least 15 years, offering a rich and complex flavor profile featuring oak notes combined with the lightness of fresh malts. It is the perfect balance of the best Scottish single malts in a bottle.
Buchanan's Select continues the tradition and quality that the brand is renowned for and was introduced by Master Blender Craig Wallace. Wallace is a respected Scotch Whisky specialist and has been responsible for launching some of Diageo's most exclusive single malts globally, including Singleton of Dufftown's 15- and 18-Year-Old whisky and Singleton of Glendullan's 15- and 18-Year-Old whisky. Additionally, Wallace continues to be a pioneer within the category and created Smoky Goat, a unique blend combining three styles of whisky that was the first bottling part of Whiskey Union.
"Buchanan's Select offers a combination of only fine single malts with great character and balance at the beginning, and evolves over caramelized notes to end in a persistent finish, marked by notes of toasted oak, initial aromas of caramel, walnut, light notes of apple and ripe pear. I am very proud of this fine whisky and hope that it will be enjoyed responsibly by Scotch Whisky enthusiasts across the U.S.," said Wallace.
This distinctive flavor profile and style of blend allows it to shine within the portfolio as its own unique new offering, while maintaining the high quality standards that have characterized Buchanan's for more than a hundred and thirty years. Scotch Whisky connoisseurs will appreciate the distinct complexity that this blend of prestige malts offers.
"The Buchanan's portfolio has always been comprised of award-winning liquids, and we are proud to introduce another highly regarded whisky to our collection. Buchanan's Select is unlike any other marque in our portfolio, and as a brand that thrives on greatness and continually defies expectations, we are thrilled that this new whisky embodies the core values and heritage of our brand," commented Tara King, Buchanan's Senior Brand Manager.
Buchanan's Select should be enjoyed responsibly neat, on the rocks or in your drink of choice. It will be available nationwide wherever fine spirits are sold with a suggested retail price of $49.99 (750 ml/bottle, 40% ABV).
