Macnairs 10 Year Old Lum Reek Blended Malt Scotch 700ml
The second batch of MacNair's Lum Reek 10 Year Old, blended and bottled at cask strength by the gang at the GlenAllachie distillery. This blended malt Scotch combines single malts from Speyside and Islay, including whisky from GlenAllachie's own stocks, rested in a host of Spanish sherry casks, wine barriques, and virgin oak. The result is an impressive balance of elegant peat smoke, sweet, honeyed fruit, treacle, and spice. Bottled without chill filtration or added colour at a hearty 55.8% ABV.
Nose Sticky toffee, burnt sugar, and smouldering bonfire embers are joined by spiced biscuits and oaken vanilla.
Palate Roasted malt, rich coffee, and bittersweet cacao tangle with charred peat and honey cake.
Finish Zesty marmalade and spiced fruits finish things up, supported by cinnamon sticks, and murmurs of sweet smoke.
