FINLAGGAN RED WINE MATURED WINS IWSC SILVER

The Vintage Malt Whisky Company are thrilled to announce their new release Finlaggan Red Wine Matured Islay Single Malt Whisky has been awarded a silver medal by The International Wine & Spirits Competition 2019.

Andrew Crook, MD said of the award “we are delighted to add another award from the prestigious IWSC to our collection!  Even more so, that it is our new release Finlaggan Red Wine Matured.  The Rioja red wine cask maturation of this quality Islay single malt has given it a delicious sweet smoke and red berry nose, along with strawberries and plum notes on the palate and a long lingering sweet smoke finish.  Our customers are very excited by this new product in our portfolio and feedback has been very positive”.

The IWSC scored Finlaggan Red Wine Matured a 92 and described it as a fresh and vibrant whisky, with nettles, apples, pears and an elegant peatiness.  Spiciness builds, ending with a ginger-led, well rounded finish.

“This is great news for our Finlaggan brand – not only is it a great indication of the quality of Finlaggan Red Wine Matured Islay Single Malt, but the IWSC name and medal is internationally recognised by trade and consumers, who seek out the winners” said Brian Crook, Chairman.
