The clans of Scotland have survived for centuries and although belonging to a clan today is quite a different experience to the one you may have had 300 or 400 years ago, many of the traditional values and feelings are the same. While the term “Clan” means family or children in Scots gaelic, not everyone in the same clan was actually related to one another. The clan structure however embodied a feeling of unity and strength, a spirit of togetherness and friendship and one which allowed the Clansmen to have control over their designated land. (You can see from our map the clans which surrounded Loch Lomond). The spirit of kinship is reflected in our range of Loch Lomond whiskies-to be enjoyed on their own and also shared with others!
Loch Lomond, the official spirit of The Open, has agreed a high-profile partnership with 2011 Open Champion, Darren Clark, to promote the brand’s rangeof award winning single malts across the world.
Darren Clarke has been working with Loch Lomond Master Blender Michael Henry to create Loch Lomond 19 Year Royal Port Rush Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Michael’s choice of casks reflects the underlying fruit character, created by the innovative stills at the Loch Lomond distillery. Bottled in the traditional artisanal manner: non chill-filtered, and bottled at 50.3% alc/vol., resulting in a richer mouthfeel and a deeper and more complex flavor, just as nature intended.
NOSE: Tropical fruits and honey sweetness.
PALATE: Orchard fruits and lemon meringue. The deep fruity character of pear lead into citrus lemon, vanilla meringue and light biscuit sweetness.
FINISH: Medium length with gentle spice.
