William Grant have announced a fourth addition to their Girvan Patent Still single grain whisky range. The Girvan Patent Still Proof Strength.
The Girvan Patent Still Proof Strength will be launched initially in the UK in time for Christmas, the edition is aimed at the whisky enthusiast looking to experiment. The Girvan Patent Still Proof Strength shows off the variety and versatility of single grain Scotch and brings exciting news to the world of whisky.
They tell me that this limited edition release has a surprisingly mellow taste profile for a higher strength variant – in line with the deliciously different profile of the brand. The extra strength brings out the vibrant, zesty notes of the whisky; giving it an extra intensity of flavour. Punchy on the palette with an unexpectedly light aftertaste, the whisky has a lingering sweet vanilla creaminess.
Packaging remains sleekand elegant. The slender bottle has a light, sophisticated feel to it and is available in a rigid box with a ‘picture frame’ to show off bottle and a metal badge on the side panels for a truly premium finish.
The release follows in the success of The Girvan Patent Still 25 Year Old, 30 Year Old and No. 4 Apps Single Grain whisky. It will be available in the UK initially plus additional markets in Europe, US and Asia in 2015.
