"Usquaebach Scotch Whisky, (pronounced “oos-ke-bah”) an artisinally crafted, hand-blended Highlands Scotch imported by family-owned Cobalt Brands, announces the release of its first new blend in nearly 25 years, the Usquaebach An Ard Ri Cask Strength. Translated from Gaelic as “the high king,” the An Ard Ri is an ultra-premium, high-proof blend of more than 20 single malt casks, aged between 10 and 21 years.

Carefully crafted by longstanding Usquaebach blenders, Hunter Laing and Co., the An Ard Ri is made with casks from Master Blender Stewart H. Laing’s personal collection. Mr. Laing selected from a range of Highlands whiskies, including Inchgower, Benrinnes, Craigellachie, Glengoyne, Dailuaine, Blair Athol, and Auchroisk. At 57.1% ABV, the finished product is a powerfully complex and structured, yet harmoniously smooth cask strength blend that faithfully maintains Usquaebach’s position as “King of the Blended Whiskies.” On the nose, the An Ard Ri exhibits marzipan, brioche, and burnt orange peel, followed by notes of honey, leather, dried fruits, and brown sugar on the palate.

The 2,000 bottle limited release is packaged in a striking gold and blue variation of Usquaebach’s signature flagon bottle, keeping with the product’s theme of bringing ancient tradition to a modern audience" -- PRWeb
