Highland distiller Loch Lomond has unveiled two age-statement single malt whiskies as part of its core range, including a cask strength 30-year-old Scotch.
Michael Henry, Loch Lomond Whiskies master blender, said: “Working on these two aged products has been a pleasure. Each expression perfectly showcases our signature style and the range of flavours that Loch Lomond Whiskies is known for – fruits, spice and a hint of peat. Working with both American oak and oloroso casks has created wonderfully distinctive, warming flavours that we hope whisky lovers will enjoy.”
Loch Lomond 30 Years Old, which is bottled at a cask strength of 47% ABV, has been matured in American oak casks and half the liquid used in its production was finished in oloroso Sherry casks. It is said to have aromas of honey, peach, vanilla and cinnamon spice on the nose. On the palate, it has flavours of toffee, fresh pineapple and a subtle spice of ginger and nutmeg.
The Loch Lomond 21 Years Old Single Malt, which is bottled at 46% ABV, is made using three styles of spirit, two of which are peated. Each whisky was matured in American oak casks, before being married together for up to three months. It is said to offer flavours of sweet vanilla fudge, peaches, pears and a touch of cinnamon.
Both Loch Lomond 21 Years Old and Loch Lomond 30 Years Old will be available globally. For more information, go to lochlomondwhiskies.com
