MacNair's Lum Reek Peated 21 Year Old.
This blended malt heralds from GlenAllachie Distillery and is another triumph created by Billy Walker.
A blend of some of the finest Islay and Speyside peated malts combined with richer, older GlenAllachie, the Lum Reek 21 years old was aged in Oloroso, Virgin Oak and Red Wine casks. Non chill filtered, natural colour and bottled at 48% ABV, Billy Walker has recreated the peated whiskies of 100 years ago for the modern-day palette.
The name is inspired by Victorian distiller Harvey MacNair,also linked to a Hogmoay toast " Long may your lum reek!" meaning Long may your chimney smoke!
Presumably peat smoke?
Nose: Aristocratic peat smoke with dark chocolate and fudge.
Taste:Tobacco, leather, cedar wood and waves of peat reek with oodles of cocoa, vanilla, honey and spices.
