Loch Lomond The 150th Open Mizunara Cask 29 Year Old
This Mizunara Exclusive Cask has been chosen to celebrate the 150th year of The Open at St Andrews and our proud relationship with golf’s oldest, most prestigious tournament. We raise a dram to all those who have had the honor of playing and contributing to this very special tournament over the years.
Like the Open itself, this whisky has taken an incredible journey, distilled in 1993 from our traditional Swan Stills and starting its life in American Oak casks. Michael Henry, our Master Blender, hand-selected this whisky to take a different path, finishing it in Mizunara Oak which is a species native to Japan. These casks are quite rare and require social crafting as Mizunara Oak Tress take around 200 years to fully mature and have a softer more delicate nature.
You can expect rich orchard fruits on the palate, with a tropical influence of coconut, banana, and toasted oak from Mizunara casks, with a melted brown sugar sweetness on the finish. It is non-chilled filtered, to keep things just as nature intended.
