Loch Lomond 12 Year Old - The Open Special Edition 2020, which was created by by Master Blender, Michael Henry, is said to deliver notes of grapefruit, vanilla syrup, cinnamon and lime juice.
Commenting on the launch, Michael Henry, said: “It has been a real pleasure crafting this limited edition to mark The 149th Open. We are one of very few distilleries currently using wine yeasts in the fermentation process, which brings a unique and vibrant flavour to the finished liquid. As a distillery we are perfectly placed to be able to develop these rare expressions, which is ideally suited to our preference for longer fermentation times, combined with the control we have over the final character using our straight-necked stills.”
Limited to 3,000 bottles, Loch Lomond 12 Year Old - The Open Special Edition 2020, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £50.00.
