Lochnagar 30 year old 1974 60.2% Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Highland region eastern district.

Distilled 1974 Bottled 2005

Single cask releasing 224 bottles

Lochnagar Distillery Aged 30 year old

Bottled at natural cask strength 60.2% Non Chill filtered.

Platinum Selection bottling by Douglas Laing.

The initial nose is rich and sweet; bursting with ginger; cloves and orange peel with hints of toffee apples in the background.

The creamy body slowly falls away to reveal a well-rounded and full palate abundant with delights from the dessert menu; Crème brulee, peach melba and caramel shortcake.

The finish is surprisingly short-but-sweet and distinctly moreish.
