The Fallow Edition from Lochlea's calendar of yearly, seasonal releases, see's the distillery's spirit matured entirely in first-fill Pedro Ximinez & Oloroso Sherry casks. Compared to many of the other releases from this rather new distillery, which seek to show off the lightness of the spirit, this batch, especially for the latest release (Second Crop), goes all in on creating an indulgent, velvety mouthfeel, oozing with fresh sherry notes. Definitely one of our favourites, the balance between PX & Oloroso is on point, neither leaning too heavily towards dry or desserty.

Very promising for future releases....

 

Official Tasting Notes:

Nose: Rich Manuka honey, golden syrup

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.
