Lagg Kilmory 70cl
The flagship single malt and the first core range expression to be released from Lagg Distillery. Many have been waiting for whisky from Arran's peated sister distillery for some time and they have delivered exceptionally.
It's made from peated Concerto malted barley and water from the distillery's own borehole and matured exclusively in first-fill bourbon casks in order to preserve the house style of the Lagg distillery.
Cask Type: 100% First Fill Bourbon Casks
Peated | Natural Colour | Non-chill Filtered
Nose: Sweet and peat flavours dominate. Citrus sweetness is undercut by a gentle ashy smoke, reminiscent of bonfire embers or old pubs as well as a damp, earthy and note.
Palate: Bright and vibrant. The citrus and tropical fruits from the nose continue and provide a zesty spark. Vanilla creeps in and the grassy damp vegetal and herby notes of the distillery character arrive more pronounced on the palate. Again, the peat is earthy and ashy and the bonfire ash develops into cigar tobacco.
Finish: A gentle short to medium finish that brings out more of the earthy/ashy smoke and some peppercorn spice.
