Loch Lomond // Highlands, Scotland
Loch Lomond The Open Course Collection Royal Portrush is one of two single malt releases the distillery has issued for its partnership with The Open Championship being held in Portrush, Northern Ireland in July 2019. It is a single malt which has matured in American oak barrels for 19 years. It finishes its maturation in claret casks (a British term for Bordeaux wine). The claret cask finish is a homage to the trophy given at The Open which is commonly called the Claret Jug.
