Lochlea – First Release
The highly-anticipated first release from Lochlea, an independent family-owned distillery located in the heart of Ayrshire, who are approaching their small-batch whisky making in an innovative, flexible and responsive way, without the constraints of a large corporate structure.
Bottled at 46% ABV, the first release single malt whisky has been matured in fresh first-fill Bourbon and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks.
Bursting with fresh orchard fruit, apple, zesty orange and pear drops. Some brown sugar, toffee and vanilla fudge in the background.
Rich and sweet, with burnt caramel and hazelnuts. Still plenty of stewed fruit and now some toasted oats, cinnamon and clove coming through.
Medium mouth coating, holding on to that fresh fruit, cereal sweetness and gentle spice.
