Loch Lomond, The Official Spirit of the Open, agreed on a high-profile partnership with 2011 open champion, Darren Clarke to promote the brand’s range of award-winning single malts across the world.
Darren Clarke worked with Loch Lomond Whiskies Master Blender Michael Henry to create the Open Course Collection Royal St George's, a 20-year-old single malt. To celebrate our visit to England for the first time since becoming The Spirit of the Open Michael’s choice of casks, specially commissioned English Virgin Oak, brings out the fruit character created by the innovative stills at Loch Lomond distillery.
Bottled in the traditional artisanal manner: non chill filtered and bottled at 50.3% abv resulting in a richer mouthfeel and a deeper and more complex flavour, just as nature intended.
Spiced apple, elderflower and sweet vanilla.
Caramel sweetness, green apple and honeydew melon, then toasted oak and clove of spice.
Dry, lingering finish of lime citrus, cumin and ginger.
