Description

The arrival of Lindores Abbey's first commercially available whisky marks a significant moment in Scotch whisky history, as it harks back to the origins of whisky distillation at Lindores Abbey in 1494. This Lowland single malt Scotch whisky pays homage to that legacy while presenting a modern interpretation of the craft.

Aged in a combination of ex-bourbon, ex-sherry, and STR ex-Burgundy red wine casks, this whisky offers a unique and impressive flavor profile that balances lightness with richness.

On the nose, it greets you with malty crispness and sherried spice, evolving into a complex array of aromas reminiscent of a bakery in an orchard. Notes of puff pastry, vanilla, apples, pears, figs, plums, blueberries, and citrus intertwine with hints of chocolate, porridge, and tobacco, creating a captivating olfactory experience.

The palate delivers a viscous texture, with a pleasing balance between creamy and oily sensations. Aromatic spices mingle with creamy caramel, vanilla, and darker fruits, while occasional spikes from the youth and wine casks add depth. Notes of marzipan, poached pears, chocolate, and burnt orange emerge, providing layers of flavor and complexity.

The finish is medium in length, leaving behind a hint of drying bitter oak, syrupy anise, peppermint, and a lingering memory of orchard fruits and dairy cream, reflecting the whisky's character and craftsmanship.

Overall, Lindores Abbey's inaugural whisky release showcases both the historical significance of its origins and the innovative spirit of modern Scotch whisky production, making it a compelling addition to any whisky enthusiast's collection.
