    Fudge Waxy Oak Oily Fruity Vanilla Rich Taste

    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.

    Official tasting notes:

    Fresh creamy vanilla aromas with a dry citrus burst, fresh pine needle and lovely fresh oakiness, it opens nicely with time to reveal fresh apple, pear and rhubarb with a sweet heather bouquet.

    It has a creamy mouth-feel with a waxy texture, carrying a lot of flavour, autumn fruits with cherry, peaches and plums combining well with a dry wood spice and a little cinnamon. Adding a touch of water releases a more softer sweeter flavour, marshmallow and creamy coconut with a hint of wood smoke on the finish.

    A most perfect, warming beach bonfire companion.

    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.

    I tasted the whisky in the metro centre shop, Gateshead. This whisky is superb, from the moment you sip and drink, the lingering taste of the whisky remains on your tongue long after swallowing. Smooth and persistent taste, a great sipping whisky for long winter days.
