It’s exciting to see this distillery releasing its first single malt whisky! Lindores Abbey is rooted deep in Scotch whisky history and with the new operation of the distillery they have now dusted off that history book.
The abbey is officially recognised as the site of the first recorded distillation of scotch in 1494, which appears in that year’s Exchequer Roll. Over 500 years ago a Lindores monk named Brother John Cor turned 8 bolls of malt into Aqua Vitae on a commissioning from King James IV. With this knowledge of this history they are planning to keep Lindores Abbey in the history books for another 500 years.
It is after 15 years of planning that the vision of this distillery is now a reality.
This spirit has one of the longest wash fermentation periods in the industry, distilled in unusual sister spirit stills, and matured in a selection of barrels (bourbon barrels, wine barriques, and Sherry butts) that makes this unique.
Our early maturing spirit gives us great confidence that our whisky will be as sought after and enjoyed as it was in MCDXCIV (1494)
Nose: Elegant, soft, mellow vanilla, caramel notes playing with orchard fruits and sweet pear drops. Reminiscent of toffee apples!
Palate: Smooth with a creamy texture and a perfect balance of mellow vanilla, dried fruits, citrus touches with a hint of spice.
Finish: Medium length, delicate but lingering finish.
