The Loch Lomond Group, has officially announced the launch of two new expressions from its Island Collection of single malt Scotch whiskies.

Inchmoan 12 Year Old (46% ABV) was produced using spirit from the distillery’s traditional swan neck and straight neck pot stills, which was then matured in a combination of re-charred American oak and refill bourbon American oak casks. Inchmoan Vintage 1992 (48.6% ABV) was produced using spirit from the distillery’s straight neck pot still, before being matured for 25 years, in refill bourbon barrels.

The Inchmoan range consists of peated whiskies which have been married together by Master Blender Michael Henry, to complement the unique flavour and character of the Loch Lomond Distillery.

The new Inchmoan releases, now sit aside Loch Lomond’s Inchmurrin bottlings, as part of their Island Collection of single malts, which are said to epitomise the diverse range of flavour profiles possible from the distillery’s unique still configuration.

Commenting on the launch, Michael Henry, Master Blender at Loch Lomond, said: “Our intriguing new Inchmoan expressions have been created to celebrate the history and heritage of the island and are the first heavily peated releases in the Loch Lomond Whiskies range. I have selected three different spirits each bringing a unique peat characteristic, whether that’s spicy, medicinal peat or smoky peat, to the Inchmoan 12 Year Old. This combination creates a balanced, complex peat character highlighting some of the softer, spicier peat notes often masked by heavier peat flavours.”

Inchmoan 12 Year Old and Inchmoan Vintage 1992, are now available from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s pf £44.00 and £199.00.
