Pernod Ricard has released the second edition of its Signature Oak range - Ballantine's 21-Year-Old American Oak. The first - Ballantine's 21 Year Old European Oak - was released in October last year.

"Ballantine's 21 Year Old American Oak is the ultimate expression of American Oak cask influence," said Sandy Hyslop, Ballantine's master blender. "We... nose each cask to ensure a balance between wood and whisky that results in a distinguished blend." 

The Travel Retail exclusive will be on show with its own installation in South Korea's Incheon and Jeju International Airports throughout November and December, the company said. The installation will include a tasting table and a film that shows the growth of an American oaktree alongside the maturation of whisky.
