Morrison Bowmore Distillers has unveiled a new Auchentoshan single malt whisky exclusively for the duty free and travel retail channels.

Auchentoshan 1988 Bordeaux Wine Finish is bottled at a natural cask strength of 52.4% abv, the company said earlier this week. Limited to 1,800 bottles, the new whisky will be priced at GBP100 (US$186), and will be available to all duty free retailers.

"Travellers purchasing in the duty-free and travel-retail environment are faced with an overwhelming range of single malts everyday so it is important that the limited editions we introduce are nothing short of world class," said Auchentoshan's marketing manager Karen Christie.

Other references in the Auchentoshan range include the entry-level Select, Auchentoshan 12 Year Old, Auchentoshan Three Wood, Auchentoshan 18 Year Old, and Auchentoshan 21 Year Old.
