The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Museum is proud to launch its Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, ‘The Thin Red Line’.
The Battle of Balaklava
‘The Thin Red Line’, which is depicted on the label, refers to the famous incident during the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War.
Just 400 soldiers from the 93rd (Highlanders) repelled a charge of Russian cavalry. 160 years on, this momentous event is marked by the launch of this commemorative whisky.
The whisky itself is a marriage of various ages, some older, some younger to produce a delicious malt. This Single Malt has a bright, pale gold colour. On the nose there follows a lovely youthful barley with light citrus notes, a touch of candied fruit and pear drops, even a hint of mint. . To taste there is an initial burst of flavours of barley, lemon and vanilla.
This is an easy drinking malt, ideal for all occasions
Whisky writer and journalist Jim Murray recently gave the malt 88 points, stating it was a ‘beautifully made malt which is full of life’. It also received the bronze medal at the International Wines & Spirits Competition, a huge achievement for a young whisky.
Supporting the Museum
All the profits of the Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky go to the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Museum (Charity no. SCO42084). The museum endeavours to honour the men who have served during its 200 year history, and is almost entirely funded by public donations.
