Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or vif.
  • Nose : ample, aérien. Ses notes de lichen, de noix verte, d’anis, de menthe poivrée et de verveine lui confèrent de la personnalité et du panache. En plus de son caractère malté (bière, levures), huileux, animal (cuir) et salin, il propose une vaste palette allant des agrumes (citron, orange) au lait d’amande.
  • Palate : légère, vibrante. Ses notes de loukoum et de confiture de rose font penser au superbe rye californien Old Potrero. La noix de coco, les fruits secs (abricot, amande), l’eucalyptus et les plantes aromatiques (sauge, mélisse) mettent en exergue sa complexité. Avec assurance et naturel, elle se suffit à elle-même.
  • Overall : duveteuse, soyeuse. Comme le phénix, elle renait de ses cendres. Balsamique, elle profite des eaux du loch Lomond tout proche pour se rafraîchir. Capiteuse, elle se prolonge sur le cuir de Russie, la cannelle et le lys. Le verre vide est mentholé.
The brand

The brand

Behind this highly exclusive single malt lies a dominating distillery made famous across the world by the most courageous merchant navy captain in comic book history. Located on the border of the Lowlands and Highlands, Loch Lomond is a veritable laboratory. It distils various types of whisky (grain and malt) and produces various styles of malt, including Inchmurrin, which has a floral and very pronounced exotic style, and another malt well-known to connoisseurs, Old Rhosdhu.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

Cask strength simply means that the contents of the cask have not been diluted with water. This is therefore a range of whiskies that have been bottled at their natural strength without any dilution. These whiskies are also not chill filtered – enabling a finer appreciation of their character – and carry a detailed label specifying the number(s) of the cask(s) in the blend, the date of the distillation and the bottling, and usually the type of cask(s) selected. This range will delight fans of special release whiskies bottled at cask strength.
