The makers of Scotland's only triple-distilled single malt whisky, Auchentoshan, has revealed plans to release an 18-Years-Old limited edition bottling.

Morrison Bowmore will sell only 4,800 bottles from a selection of first and second fill Oloroso sherry butts. The limited edition range is described as copper in colour with a medium body and a fragrant aroma of heather, sweet honey and almonds

Auchentoshan marketing manager Karen Murray said: "This limited edition is a fantastic expression of Auchentoshan and is a worthy addition to our premium range. The traditional characteristics of Auchentoshan are clearly evident however the sherry maturation adds an additional distinctive quality."
