Morrison Bowmore has launched its Small Batch Reserve, a limited release Scotch that the company claims is its lightest whisky so far.

The reserve is limited to 5,000 cases and will be sold in the UK off-trade as well as through a distribution deal with Asda, Morrison Bowmore told just-drinks. The new addition coincides with the release earlier this year of new packaging across the Bowmore range and new travel-retail marketing, the company said. 

Bowmore said the Islay single malt has been launched in response to increased consumer demand for special and small-batch whiskies. It was created from a selection of first- and second-fill Bourbon casks and combined for an extended period of maturation.

Last month, Morrison Bowmore launched a marketing campaign for its 15-year-old Darkest Scotch brand.
