We are delighted to unveil our newest release; Loch Lomond 45 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Our 45-year-old single malt is the first of three releases in The Remarkable Still series, which has been created to spotlight our distillery’s innovative and unique straight neck pot stills. Presented in a Loch Lomond premium bottle, complete with a debossed copper plaque, and enclosed in a beautifully crafted oak wood box designed to mirror the design of the Loch Lomond straight neck pot stills. Only 200 individually numbered bottles have been released, making it one of our rarest expressions to date. Distilled in 1973, the whisky has been matured in American oak casks before a one year finish in first-fill oloroso, adding a distinct sweetness. This single malt has exceptional character, showcasing aromas of orange blossom and honeysuckle. A sweet honey palate, followed by intense tropical fruits of melon, kiwi and lime citrus. The finish is long with notes of tart green fruits and warming cinnamon spice. Bottled at 42.2% and non-chill filtered, allowing the underlying fruity Loch Lomond style to come to the fore. The Loch Lomond 45 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is priced at £3450. Our Master Blender, Michael Henry commented on the new release: “Our straight neck pot stills connect us to the spirit of innovation that was built into our distillery from the beginning, and places flavour at the centre of what we do. It is only fitting that we mark their significance to us through the Remarkable Stills Series. “It has been a pleasure working on the creation of the Loch Lomond 45 Year Old, our first release of the series. It is a truly beautiful expression and captures the essence of the Loch Lomond Whiskies spirit perfectly. “After 45 years aging in American oak and oloroso sherry casks, the whisky retains the character of the distillery, and showcases Loch Lomond Whiskies signature fruity flavour beautifully. The flavours of the expression are wonderfully unique, and we hope whisky lovers will enjoy it.” The launch of the 45 year old follows a brand refresh and extension of our whisky portfolio which took place earlier this year, including the addition of our 21 and 30 year old single malts. John Grieveson, Chief Marketing Officer at Loch Lomond Group, said: “The Loch Lomond 45 Year Old is an exquisite single malt and we are very proud to launch it to market. A wealth of experience and craftsmanship goes into each of our expressions, and the Loch Lomond 45 Year Old is no exception. It’s a fantastic edition to our range of single malts and as the first expression in our Remarkable Stills Series, we’re very excited about its launch.” To mark the launch of the release we have created an online experience which details exactly how the liquid was created, over more than four decades.
