The Loch Fyne The Living Cask 1745 Description
Winner of a liquid gold award in the 2016 Jim Murray whisky bible - scoring an impressive 94.5 points.
Carefully selecting a used bourbon cask with tight staves and a good heritage, we created a marriage of what we considered to be the ‘the best’ Islay single malts. And so The Living Cask® was born, with that combination of Islay malts at its heart forevermore. Respecting our Inveraray roots, we christened it The Living Cask 1745 in a nod to the year the town was founded by The Duke of Argyll.
You can buy and enjoy The Living Cask 1745 today. It’s a very fine dram, and its excellent Islay credentials can be tasted in every drop.
Please note: Our Loch Fyne Whiskies products are presented in handmade glass bottles. Due to their handmade nature, these bottles can show small imperfections such as grooves and seams in the glass.
Nose: Sweet smoke, like burning heather, it then opens to a chimney soot and coal tar. There's a nice maltiness with a touch of coconut. Over time this is reminiscent of harbours and old rope - Typical Islay!
Palate: Big, bold and yet balanced delicately. An oily texture, there's an ashy note underlying with lots of peat, tar, tobacco and charred oak
Finish: Peppery but with a sweet edge. It really stands out from the crowd.
