The eighth 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. Under the expert eye (and nose) of Tom Aitken, former Master Blender at Dewar's, this 2019 batch has brought some carefully selected Highland malts to the coastal notes of Batch 7.
The nose is bursting with exotic fruits, lemon, lime and kiwi, with freshly cut grass and sweet white chocolate aspects. The palate is light and fresh with grassy notes and a warming spice emerging with some of Batch 7's coastal notes. The finish is incredibly smooth and long lasting.
