Loch Lomond Cristie Kerr 2002 Vintage Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Loch Lomond Single Malt Vintage 2002 was finished in French oak barrels which previously held the 2016 vintage of Pinot Noir red wine from the Kerr Cellars winery.
The 2002 spirit was selected to celebrate Cristie’s first win on the LPGA tour and spent six months maturing in the Pinot Noir barrels, which were shipped to the Loch Lomond Distillery in Alexandria, near Loch Lomond, in October 2018.
The barrels are composed of Vosges Oak from the Alsace mountains in Eastern France. They were seasoned for three years prior to being delivered to the Loch Lomond cooperage and used for six months to mature the 2002 spirit carefully selected by Loch Lomond Master Blender Michael Henry to form the release.
The Pinot Noir finish has amplified the fruit characteristics associated with the Loch Lomond Distillery to create a truly special single malt Scotch.
The Loch Lomond 2002 Vintage Single Malt delivers fresh red berries, strawberry, and cranberry with creamy vanilla. There are green apple and kiwi fruit with lime citrus and a gentle honeyed sweetness before mouth-watering fruit and warming ginger spice on the finish. Bottled at 48.1% ABV and non-chill filtered ensure a rich mouthfeel and a deep and complex flavor, just as nature intended.
