Ln comes from a distillery situated on the coast of Loch Indaal. Heavily peated to more than 50pmm, this combines first-fill bourbon-cask sweetness with rich peat.
Core FlavourChili spice and pharmacy sweets
Cask detailsA Single Bourbon Barrel
NoseNotes of orange, Victorian sponge cake and fresh pastries dipped in honey, as if walking past a bakery first thing in the morning. Peppermint sweets in a pharmacy, followed by mojitos, cupcakes and smoky mezcal shots with lime wedges.
PalateThe initial smoke that was shy on the nose becomes more and more powerful. Jalapenos are roasted on a beach bonfire below a hillside farm. The palate is dark and bucolic with hints of cumin and salted vanilla biscuits. Rich and powerful.
FinishSmoke lingers but leaves space for some rich toffee and vanilla flavours. The farmyard notes are still present, gradually losing some spiciness, as the whisky releases a wave of sweetness and honeycomb cake.
