Macnair's Lum Reek 10 Year Old Batch 1 combines Single Malt Scotch Whiskies from Speyside and Islay – two of the most sought-after whisky producing regions – resulting in a subtly smoky yet sweet favour profile.
The aged whiskies were personally sourced by legendary blender, Billy Walker before being blended together with GlenAllachie Single Malt. The spirit was then re-racked into specially selected Spanish Sherry casks, wine barriques and virgin oak casks for secondary maturation, allowing the whiskies to marry and additional characteristics to be attained from the wood.
Once the final cask selection was determined by Walker, Lum Reek 10-year-old Cask Strength Batch 1 was bottled at a natural cask strength of 55.4% ABV, without added colouring or chill filtration.
Colour: Rich Bronze
Nose: Waves of smoke, heather honey, and ginger fusing with cinnamon, treacle, and vanilla.
