The new 500 bottle limited edition expression was created as a tribute to Loch Lomond Whiskies golf ambassador Colin Montgomerie’s glorious three wood shot that helped secure victory for Europe in the 1997 Ryder Cup.

Matured in refill American oak before being matured for up to six months in a combination of first fill Limousin oak and Oloroso sherry casks, the Loch Lomond Three Wood Matured 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky unites two of Scotland's greatest exports, single malt Scotch whisky and golf.

Colin Montgomerie – better known to his fans as Monty – is one of the UK’s most successful golfers, since turning professional in 1987, Montgomerie has recorded 53 tournament victories across the world and became European #1 in 1993 – a position he held for an unprecedented seven years.

Ryder Cup success followed as a player including his legendary three wood tee shot on the 18th hole at Valderrama in 1997 that secured victory for Europe by a single point and gained him “Shot of the Year”.

He later famously led Europe to success as Captain at Celtic Manor in 2010.

Montgomerie said: "As a proud Scot I know that Scotland is world-renowned for both our whisky and our unrivalled golf courses. I am thrilled that the Loch Lomond Three Wood Matured 25 Year Old Single Malt will celebrate both worlds.

"My shot at Valderrama is one that will live long in the memory for me. To know that it has inspired a Single Malt and one which carries my signature is a huge honour. I hope that golfers and whisky fans alike will enjoy a dram as much as I have."

Created by Montgomerie in partnership with Loch Lomond Master Blender Michael Henry, the Loch Lomond Three Wood Matured 25 Year Old is described as a beautifully balanced single malt Scotch Whisky offering fruit notes of peach and pear, with subtle floral and perfumed notes, it is enhanced by cloves and cinnamon on the finish.

Presented in an elegant black and red gift box that celebrates Monty’s golfing achievements, the Loch Lomond Triple Wood Matured 25 Year Old has been bottled at 46.3% ABV and has a RRP of £250. A limited release of 500 bottles which will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
