For the commemorative coronation release, Bladnoch's master distillery Dr Nick Savage selected a Tokaji 'King's Wine' cask . Tasting notes from the distillery say the whisky has a floral nose and a "rich and fruity" palate. The expression has been bottled at 47.7% ABV, and each of the 289 bottles available has been individually numbered.

"We are thrilled to release this special bottling in honour of King Charles III's coronation," said Dr Savage. "This whisky has credentials that are truly fit for a King, and we are proud to release this bottle in celebration of this historic occasion. With only 289 bottles available from this single Tokaji wine cask, this release is one or the rarest releases to date for Bladnoch Distillery."
