Lord Elcho 15 Year Blended Whisky
Lord Elcho // Scotland
Lord Elcho, the eldest son of the 5th Earl of Wemyss, was one of the most celebrated supporters of Bonnie Prince Charlie during the Jacobite Rebellion. In his honor a blended whisky is created by independent bottler, Wemyss Malts. This 15-year old version has a high malt whisky content of 40 percent.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"Starts on sweet and malty notes with a touch of charred oak. There are cereal husks, honey and sweet orange juice as well. The palate is pretty creamy, even at this low abv. A subtle, chocolate-y arrival, with hints of raisins and a mild spiciness. A bitterness lingers for a little while, with a sweet touch of slightly burnt caramel."
