Lindores The Cask of Lindores Red Wine Finish
Country: Scotland | Region: Lowlands | Volume: 70cl | ABV: 49.4%
As the officially recognized site of the first recorded distillation of Scotch Whisky in 1494, which appears in the Exchequer Roll of the same year, Lindores is again taking its place in history with its Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Over 500 years after Brother John Cor, a Lindores monk, was commissioned by King James IV to turn 8 bolls of malt into Aqua Vitae, Lindores are delighted to re-open the history book. Although Lindores Abbey has been in the McKenzie Smith family ownership for over 100 years it was 2001 when two unrelated incidents planted the germ of an idea in the mind of a young Drew McKenzie Smith. 2016 saw building on the new distillery commence and in 2017 the Visitor Centre opened and the first distillation took place. In 2021 the first scotch whisky went on sale.
One of the longest wash fermentation periods in the Scotch Whisky Industry at 117 hours coupled with an unusual sister spirit stills set up helps achieve the Distillery Manager’s goal of producing a malt of remarkable character for its age.
The Casks of Lindores series was created to showcase the award winning spirit produced at Lindores Abbey Distillery and is a great way to follow and enjoy their single malt grow over the years. This exciting series was created to showcase the award winning spirit of Lindores Abbey distillery and the three core cask types used to mature single malt at the distillery.
Mellow fruity apricot jam, toffee notes and a hint of cinnamon combined with butter and custard. Palate is full of sweets and spices. Mellow plums and red berries, treacle, cinnamon spice and a pleasant woody smoky note. Very smooth with silky texture.
