Lindores Distillery | The Casks of Lindores Bourbon (Coming Soon!)
The Casks of Lindores
The Casks of Lindores is a new limited edition series showcasing the award winning spirit of Lindores Distillery matured in the various casks used at the distillery. The first release in this series has been matured exclusively in ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 49.4% vol, a higher strength than the core Lindores MCDXCIV release.
We've been extremely impressed by the distillery since launch in 2017 and the core release has been been receiving some great reviews by our customers and experts around the world, so we're incredibly excited to see this latest release, especially because it's been fully matured in ex-bourbon casks. It's often said that spirit matured in ex-bourbon casks can honestly display how young spirit has been maturing in cask through the years.
Gary Haggart, the distillery manager at Lindores has been at the helm since 2017 and distills using local barley and long fermentations of 119 hours with slow distillation runs, resulting in the distillery winning Scotland’s best New Make Spirit in the 2020 World Whiskies Awards.
We'll soon have 'The Casks of Lindores Bourbon' release available for purchase via Abbey Whisky but in the meantime, here's a teaser of the producer notes from the distillery. Once we've cracked a bottle open and sampled for ourselves, we'll post our opinions and notes via the site. We'd love to hear your thoughts and options, so please post any comments below.
