Distinctive malt from the bonny banks

LOCH Lomond Group has expanded its Island Collection of whiskies with two new peated expressions.

Inchmoan 12 year old contains whiskies from Loch Lomond Distillery’s swan neck and straight neck stills and has been matured in a combination of re-charred American oak and refill bourbon oak casks, while Inchmoan Vintage 1992 is a single malt distilled in 1992 and matured in refill bourbon barrels.

The whiskies take their name from Inchmoan Island on Loch Lomond; in centuries past mainland inhabitants travelled to the island for its bountiful supply of peat.

Master blender of the Loch Lomond Distillery, Michael Henry, said the new expressions are “the first heavily peated releases in the Loch Lomond Whiskies range”.
