Batch 1 of Lochlea's (soon to be) annual Cask Strength Release.  This release doubles down on the house-style, elevating the softer fruity, nutty notes found in their other releases. Despite a hearty ABV of 60.1%, the spirit drinks clean, opening up with a few drops of water, showing off a more gentle set of cereal notes.

Official Tasting Notes:

Nose: Fruit punch, cigar notes, coffee beans

Palate: Signature Lochlea fruit, Brazil nuts

Finish: Orange syrup, aged oak shavings

 

The Lochlea distillery was founded in 2018 in Ayrshire, Scotland, making this distillery the newest to open in the Lowlands region. With a strong launch in 2022, and an identity driven by sustainability, and locally grown barley, they have managed to bring weight to their new-style concepts with incredible clean spirit and an impressive cask regime. Currently, they maintain a consistant core release, alongside yearly limited releases themed around the agricultural seasons of Scotland.

Distillery manager, John Campbell, will be a recognisable name from his time at Laphroaig, and has been working with Lochlea since distillation started in 2018.
