    Now here’s something worth talking about. A whisky that’s different every time it’s bottled. This is not a single malt, but a living vatting of carefully chosen malts, which in our expert opinion, will marry perfectly. For example the current batch contains a beautiful mix of Islay and Speyside malts. Stocks are topped up and then left to marry before the next batch. - with its unique batch number – is released. These batches are always limited, always different and always a talking point. The cask is stored in the open workshop in our shop in Inveraray, pop up to see us to bottle your own! Too long a trip..? We will make sure it is done for you and sent to your door, straight from Loch Fyne.

    The aromas in this whisky has lots of layers, a combination of toffee, cut grass and fresh pine sit nicely against it's slightly more coastal notes, oily with a touch of smoke. With a drop of water it opens with a much sweeter nature, honeycomb, butter biscuits and malty.

    A gentle oaky flavour balances with some aromatic spice, (star anise) and the pine detected in the aromas is present here also. A drop of water teases out some of the earthy tones, there's a little peat though soft toffee and milk chocolate dominate with a creamy texture before a spicy kick on the finish gives a comforting warmth.

    Start your remarkable collection now, and remember, no two batches are ever the same. (Nor are three, four or… you get the picture…!)
    The Living Cask still held some whisky from the original 1999 vatting. Into this was introduced a goodly portion of the 1745, then additional malts from regions other than Islay, in keeping with the ‘solera system’. It is expected that there will be four or five batches each year. The idea is that as The Living Cask continues its life, each change will be noted and given a batch number, so the drinker can assess the changes and even collect the series.
