Old Parr Blended Scotch Whisky recently announced that its Old Parr Aged 18 Years is a permanent addition to the brand’s portfolio and is headed to the American market.
This blend is aged 18 years and features what’s described as a balance of fruity, sweet, and aged wood notes. It contains rare malts from Cragganmore in its blend which gives it a complex yet smooth flavor of oak. The fruit-like tastes of a Speyside and the smokiness of peat from Islay round out the blend.
The Old Parr oval-shaped bottle is made with a crackled texture meant to resemble ancient tavern bottles. To this day, every bottle of Old Parr is sealed with signatures of its founders, the Greenlees brothers.
“As a brand with a rich history in Latin America that goes back generations, we’re excited to officially bring Old Parr Aged 18 Years to the US,” said Meghan Redler, Old Parr brand manager, in a prepared statement. “With its distinct flavor profile, Old Parr Aged 18 Years will shine within our portfolio as its own unique offering, while maintaining the high-quality standards that have characterized Old Parr for more than a hundred and fifty years.”
Old Parr Aged 18 Years will be available at stores in FL, MA, NJ, NY, TX, and DE with a suggested retail price of $69.99 (750 ml/bottle, 40% ABV).
