MacNair's Lum Reek Peated Review


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

MacNair's Lum Reek PeatedMacNair's Lum Reek Peated is the no age statement entry whisky in the Lum Reek range, a peated blended malt Scotch whisky which has been created by folks behind the GlenAllachie distillery, namely Master Distiller Billy Walker.

To create the whisky Billy has used a combination of whiskies matured in first fill Bourbon, Oloroso, Virgin Oak and Red Wine casks.

Bottled at 46% ABV, non chill filtered and naturally coloured, the spirit was first matured at GlenAllachie distillery before the final cask vatting was blended by Billy.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Light vanilla with a fresh gentle peat infusion and a little barley sugar sweetness.

Taste: The creamy vanilla infused peat which was announced by the nose leads, followed by some tongue tingling sweet oak spices and and a little dark berry fruitiness.

Finish: The dark fruit and barley sugar sweetness bows out first to leave some gentle lingering peat, oak spices and a little nuttiness.

Comment: A lovely balance of a gentle Speyside and Islay style.

SMW Blend Malt Score 80/100
