Lochlea’s much anticipated First Release
Seven years on from when the concept of Lochlea Distillery began, we are almost ready to release our inaugural whisky in January 2022.
Bottled at 46% ABV, the first release single malt whisky was matured in fresh first-fill Bourbon and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. Here are our tasting notes, but everyone is different!
Nose: Bursting with fresh orchard fruit, apple, zesty orange and pear drops. Some brown sugar, toffee and vanilla fudge in the background.
Palate: Rich and sweet, with burnt caramel and hazelnuts. Still plenty of stewed fruit and now some toasted oats, cinnamon and clove coming through.
Finish: Medium mouth coating, holding on to that fresh fruit, cereal sweetness and gentle spice.
