The tenth edition in The Living Cask series of small-batch releases from Loch Fyne Whiskies in Inveraray, this intriguing blended malt is built upon the original and award-winning The Living Cask 1745. Each batch is crafted with the remnants of its predecessor, meaning this expression is an ever-evolving creation. This release has seen the addition of four single malts from Speyside, Highland and Islands. Each malt has been finished in ex-Californian red wine barrels before being added to a percentage of the previous Living Cask Batch 9.
Aromas offer a top note of citrus and burnt orange peel used in a classic old fashioned cocktail, alongside toffee, banana and crunchy cereals dripping with honey. The flavours on the palate are of fig and physalis fruits; the wine impact gives it a tartness followed by citrus once more, jelly orange sweets and also some grapefruit. A gentle cinnamon spice greets the finish which has a chewy texture. The aftertaste stays sweet and fruity, with prune juice and almonds.
Please note: The Loch Fyne products are presented in handmade glass bottles. Due to their handmade nature, these bottles can show small imperfections such as grooves and seams in the glass.Back to top
