Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or vif.
  • Nose : riche, puissant. Médicinal, il restitue à merveille l’atmosphère chaude et humide d’une aire de maltage. Il évolue sur la réglisse et le chocolat noir. Le safran et le curcuma lui procurent beaucoup de noblesse. Minéral (salpêtre, craie), il gagne en onctuosité (citron confit, noix fraîche).
  • Palate : ample, ferme. Tout d’abord empyreumatique (eucalyptus, herbes sèches), elle évoque la chaleur d’un feu de camp (braises). On se délecte ensuite de ses fruits rouges (framboise, fraise) finement épicés (cardamome), de ses notes de pistache et de menthe. Elle gagne sans cesse en fraîcheur (melon, pastèque).
  • Overall : longue, dense. Les épices (poivre, coriandre), la racine de gentiane et les fleurs capiteuses tranchent nettement avec la fin de bouche fruitée. Végétale (concombre, troène), huileuse (noix de cajou), elle flirte avec l’Irlande (feuille de cassis). Le verre vide révèle un alcool supérieur, réglissé et fruité (kirsch).
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.
