We’re delighted to present MacNair’s Lum Reek, a heavily peated blended malt created by Master Blender Billy Walker with packaging inspired by company founder Harvey MacNair; Victorian gentleman, bon vivant and raconteur.
To create this whisky Billy has sourced heavily peated Islay and Speyside malts, married these with richer GlenAllachie and then filled to specially selected casks. These casks are matured on site at GlenAllachie Distillery until the final cask vatting is blended by Billy and bottled at 48% ABV, unchilfiltered and with no added colouring.
The old Scottish saying “Lang may yer lum reek”, literally meaning long may your chimney smoke, is the best way to wish someone a long, healthy and prosperous life. Best done with a dram of MacNair’s Lum Reek.
NOSE: Aristocratic peat smoke with dark chocolate and fudge.
TASTE: Lashings of rich peat reek with mature heather notes, bog myrtle, butterscotch, toffee and sweet spices.
