Royal Lochnagar Single Malt Whisky 2000 Muscat Caskwood 40% 70cl Double Matured in Fine Old Muscat Cask-Wood. Distilled in 2000 Bottled in The Distillers Edition. Tasting notes kindly supplied by Diageo Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine.Carefully matched for a second maturation in Muscat casks, this is a beautifully soft and rounded whisky that’s a pleasure to drink. Colour; Rich amber, with polished copper tones. On the nose; Immediate strawberry jam, bags of jelly babies, then a richly malty heart with malt loaf and Dundee cake. With water, sweeter (rich fresh fruit aromas, as in a village fruit shop) and a hint of almond oil. Palate; Oily. Fruity, with a silky cereal smoothness. Finish; Soft and biscuity, as with old-fashioned fig rolls. Lovely late warmth.
