McClelland's Single Malt Lowland
McClelland's // Lowlands, Scotland
T&A McClelland's was established in 1818 as a whisky blending and export company. Morrison Bowmore began producing this range of single malt whiskies in its memory, with each expression created to represent a different Scotch region with its classic characteristics. This whisky is their Lowland malt release.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"The Lowlands are known for their lighter, considerably less rich styles (compared to Speyside, Highland or Islay), very akin to Irish whiskeys. Floral (lilac and lavender, almost soapy) and spicy, with golden fruits and toffee in the mid palate, finishing with a distinct candied ginger heat. Tastes like one of those funky old school violet candies that come in a slim tin at the deli. Honestly, this is not what I associate with Lowlands at all except for the color!"
