A limited edition bottling of the famous Living Cask Batch 4 from Loch Fyne Whiskies in the Royal Burgh of Inveraray, released to celebrate the Inveraray & District Pipe Band being crowned World Pipe Band Champions at Glasgow Green on 12th August 2017.2017 has been a fantastic year for the pipe band who have won a host of major accolades including The British Championship, The Scottish Championship, The European Championship and the overall drumming title and the World Championships, leading to the coveted title of Champion of Champions for the second year running.Together with our own Johan van der Wal, manager of The Whisky Shop Oban and a piper in the band, Loch Fyne Whiskies have released this commemorative bottle of the ever-evolving Living Cask series.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 Inveraray & District Pipe Band was formed in 2005 and sees many international players joining the ranks of both the pipe corps and the drum corps. The band became the youngest World Champions in 2017, winning the title just 12 years after its formation.
