MacNair's Lum Reek Peated 12 Year Old Review

2nd July 2019
Review of MacNair's Lum Reek Peated 12 Year Old blended malt whisky.

MacNair's Lum Reek Peated 12 Year OldMacNair's Lum Reek Peated 12 Year Old s a combination of whiskies from first fill Bourbon, Red Wine and Pedro Ximenez casks which were blended together to produce this smoky malt.

The Lum Reek 12 year old is non chill filtered, naturally coloured and bottled at 48% ABV.

In creating the MacNair's Lum Reek blended malt whisky range, Billy Walker, now of the GlenAllachie distillery but you may recognise him as the man who developed the BenRiach, GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh Distilleries into what they are today before selling them on and purchasing GlenAllachie, has said to have recreated the peated whiskies of 100 years ago for the modern-day palette.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Toffee infused with gentle sweet peat and a wee touch of coffee and some raisin lurking in the background.

Taste: The toffee from the nose leads with more sweet peat than I was expecting, a touch of honey and some sweet spices

Finish: The peat bows out quickly but leaves some gentle sweet spice and some late green apple.

Comment: A little peatier than expected on the palate after nosing it but the peat doesn't hang around for long on the finish.

SMW Score 81/100
