Lindores Abbey “Friar John Cor Chapter 2”
As the officially recognised site of the first recorded distillation of Scotch Whisky in 1494, when Brother John Cor, a Lindores monk, was commissioned by King James IV in 1494 to turn 8 bolls of malt into Aqua Vitae, Lindores is again taking its place in history with its, now commercially available, Friar John Cor ‘The Cask Strength Congregation Batch’ – Chapter 2.
Chapter 2 is matured in a blend of Bourbon Casks, STR Wine Barriques, and Rum-Peated Casks and bottled at the batch cask strength of 60.9% ABV. As with all Lindores bottlings; it has no added colouring, is non-chill filtered and bottled onsite at Lindores Abbey Distillery.
The introduction of the peated ex-Islay casks which originally held rum, gives a very exciting point of difference to our unpeated spirit. The end result is just fantastic with a complex Whisky with syrupy fruity sweetness, balanced perfectly with deep earthy peated notes that compliment perfectly in this unique Lindores Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Mellow maple syrup, roasted banana, fruity dates, apples and spicy cinnamon, caramelised demerara sugar with subtle waves of earthy peat.
Rich fruity pears, roasted banana with spicy cinnamon, caramelized nutty almonds followed by a pleasant smoky earthy peat and subtle maritime notes. Very smooth velvety texture, well balanced and complex.
Long lasting with lots of character.
