Bacardi has added a limited-edition expression to its Aberfeldy single malt portfolio.

Aberfeldy French Red Wine Cask, which will be available in an unspecified number of units, contains liquid that was first matured for 18 years in a mix of first-fill Bourbon, re-fill and re-char barrels before a second maturation, lasting for up to five months. The 43% abv whisky, which was finished in French wine casks from the Bordeaux wine region of Pauillac, is available for one month at the distillery's shop before rolling out across the US, China, Taiwan, Germany and France.

"Pauillac casks are the aristocrats of the Médoc, they provide notes of black cherries, blackberries and a cedar wood spice," said Bacardi's malt master, Stephanie MacLeod. 

Late last year, Bacardi launched a 40-year-old Aberfeldy expression, retailing at GBP2,500 (then-US$3,290) per bottle.
