MacNairs Lum Reek Blended Malt 12 Year Old 2021 Release 70cl
At the heart of MacNair’s Boutique House of Spirits lies a meticulous attention to detail.
Taking inspiration from MacNair’s discovery of the delights of a dram beside a smoky peat fireplace, Master Blender Billy Walker has drawn upon his half century’s experience in blending to develop a recipe fit for a traditional Scottish toast to long life; “Lang may yer lum reek”.
Billy has sourced the finest vintage Speyside and Islay Single Malts, then blended with aged GlenAllachie, in pursuit of the perfect balance between peat and rich, fruity character. The spirit was then laid to rest in premium American oak barrels, sherry casks, and French oak barriques.
Nose: Sweet peat reek, butterscotch, warming mocha and gentle nutmeg
Palate: Lashings of heather honey, rich toffee, sweet spices, all with undertones of peat.
