Created in homage to the distillery’s unique straight-neck stills, the Remarkable Stills Series is said to celebrates the alchemy and engineering of Loch Lomond’s whisky-making process.
Loch Lomond 46 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of toffee,
caramelised sugar, rose, peach, mango and vanilla syrup on the nose. Followed
by notes of ripe pear, fresh orange peel, sweet melted brown sugar, cinnamon, clove,
raisins and sultanas on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Michael Henry, Loch Lomond
Whiskies Master Blender, said: “It is our unique straight-neck stills which set
us apart from other distilleries in Scotland. Often distilleries focus on the
flavours created through cask influence alone, but at Loch Lomond Whiskies we
use both the distillation and maturation process to create a distinctive
signature style. The Loch Lomond Whiskies Remarkable Stills Series has been
crafted in tribute to our unique whisky-making expertise and captures the
passion and curiosity of our whisky-making team who have set out to explore
flavour in our own unique way.”
Limited to 200 individually numbered bottles, Loch Lomond 46
Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a
RRP of £4,500.
