MacNair's Lum Reek Peated Blended Malt Scotch Whisky.
This blended malt heralds from GlenAllachie Distillery and is another triumph created by Billy Walker.
This is the perfect introduction into the Lum Reek range – a peated blended malt Scotch whisky, Master Distiller Billy Walker has combined whiskies matured in first fill Bourbon, Oloroso, Virgin Oak and Red Wine casks to produce this rich golden spirit. Bottled at 46% ABV, non chill filtered and natural colour, the spirit was first matured at GlenAllachie distillery before the final cask vatting was blended by Billy.
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?
Colour: Rich Gold.
Nose: Crisp peat notes with barley sugar and dark chocolate.
Taste: Full bodied peat reek, vanilla, barley sugar and tannins, followed by bog myrtle and sweet spices.
