Royal Lochnagar Distiller’s Edition 2008

Country: Scotland

Region: Highlands

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 40%

Score: 87 Points

This received additional maturation in a Muscat wine cask, and the nose is buttery with hints of grapes and plums. Water brings out notes of grass, spearmint, and lavender. The taste is red grapes, pine needles, wood polish, and licorice, and the finish builds over time with notes of Christmas cake and nutmeg.
