Barrogill Malt Whisky Blended by HRH Prince Charles

Barrogill blended Scotch Whisky from Gaelic Pure Scotch Whisky

Barrogill, Blended Malt Whisky

Barrogill is a blended malt whisky, produced by Inver House Distillers, and it is endorsed by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. A percentage of profits made on the sales of Barrogill whisky will go to the North Highlands Initiative, which is designed to support remote communities in the far north of Scotland.

Prince Charles is known to be an admirer of old Pulteney, and as the Pulteney distillery in Wick and Balblair, further south, are owned by Inver House, it seems reasonable to assume that both are represented in this 'North Highland Blended Malt,' along with quantities of Clynelish from Brora in Sutherland.

According to Inver House, 'This robust, complex whisky balances the various characteristics of the distilleries of the area,' and Barrogill is floral and medium-sweet on the nose, with pear drops, wood smoke,and a lingering note of yeast. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, it is fruity and spicy on the well-balanced palate, malty and slightly smoky. More smoke and some notes of peat develop in the lengthy finish. An interesting exercise in creating a blended malt from a very specific geographical area, and the result is a solid yet sophisticated and eminently drinkable blended malt.
