Ian Macleod Distillers, owner of the brand, announced today it is attempting to follow up on satisfactory sales of its 8-year-old expression that was introduced to the U.S. market in 2009.
The noted whisky expert and judge Jim Murray describes Isle of Skye as “an absolute must for any Islay-philes out there — in fact, a must for everybody. Your taste buds are beaten up and caressed simultaneously. One of the most enormous yet brilliantly balanced whiskies in the world.”
Isle of Skye 12 Year Old will carry a suggested retail price of $38.99 for the 750ml bottle from mid-September.
