Hunter Laing The Old Malt Cask Croftengea 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 50% ABV 700ml
Distilled at the Loch Lomond distillery in 2006, the word 'Croftengea' actually equates to a classification for a spirit type. This single malt whisky is made from heavily peated barley and is an elusive dram because of very limited expressions of the spirit.
This single cask release from the Old Malt Cask series was matured for 12 years in a refill hogshead, and bottled at 50%, flavours of vanilla custard and fruit salad, it becomes sweet with cinder toffee (crunchie bars) and pineapple. The smoke comes through on the palate and finish, lingering long and peaty.
Only 339 bottles produced.
Nose: Vanilla custard with fruit salad, honey.
Palate: Cinder toffee, pineapple, sea salt.
Finish: Long and lingering, with a hint of peat smoke.
