Diageo-owned blended Scotch whisky brand Buchanan's has made its first foray into the blended malt subcategory with the launch in the US of Buchanan's Select 15-Year-Old.

The new variant is a permanent addition to the Buchanan's range, which includes blends such as 12-Year-Old Deluxe, Master, 18-Year-Old Special Reserve and Red Seal.

Described as offering "a rich and complex flavour profile featuring oak notes combined with the lightness of fresh malts", Buchanan's Select is a blend of single malts from across Scotland, and the first permanent addition to the range since 2010, when Buchanan's Master was launched.

"Buchanan's Select offers a combination of only fine single malts with great character and balance at the beginning, and evolves over caramelised 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," said master blender Craig Wallace.
