MacNair's Lum Reek Peated 12 Year Old.
This blended malt heralds from GlenAllachie Distillery and is another triumph created by Billy Walker.
Introducing the first age range statement from MacNair’s, the Lum Reek 12 years old, bottled at 46% ABV, reflects Billy Walker’s vast experience as a blender, his creative skills and his expert knowledge of wood management. A combination of whiskies from first fill Bourbon, Red Wine and Pedro Ximenez casks were blended together to produce this smoky malt.
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: Sweet peat reek combining with butterscotch and mocha.
Taste: Lashings of rich peat reek with mature heather notes, bog myrtle, butterscotch, toffee and sweet spices.
