MacNair's Lum Reek 12YO Whisky

MacNair's Lum Reek 12YO Whisky

  • Blended Malt
  • Scotland, 700ml
Created from a selection of peated 12 year old single malts, MacNair's is blended together by famed master blender Billy Walker. At 12 years old the peat smoke is more mellow, sweet with butterscotch and mocha (coffee/chocolate) notes. To taste, the peaty flavours are deep, with heather and bog myrtle, butterscotch toffee and sweet woody spice.

  • Region: Islay & Speyside, Scotland
  • Alcohol: 46%
  • Volume: 700ml
  • Goes with: Ice
Inspiration comes from Victorian distiller Harvey MacNair, as well as the Scottish toast "Long may your lum reek!" (it means "Long may your chimney smoke!"). This expression features whisky aged in first-fill bourbon, Oloroso sherry, virgin oak and red wine casks, and packs a hearty helping of smoke at its core.
Ne’er happier than when exploring the globe or the spirit from the golden still, Harvey MacNair was – in the parlance of his native Glasgow – a man or ‘lad o’pairts’: a true Victorian entrepreneur. A trader, thereby a traveller, an inventor of all sorts of mechanical contraptions, his genius lay in the blending of fine whiskies. He loved and championed the natural, unadulterated colour of whisky. “Pure gold’ he said with a wink. Today’s Lum Reek is the creation of our Master Blender Billy Walker, raising his hat to the top hatted Victorian. It’s a peated malt, marrying Islay & Speyside whiskies with rich GlenAllachie, to extend the flavour profile. Lum Reek is matured in GlenAllachie’s warehouses, then bottled at 46% (and above), unchilfiltered, allowing its natural colour to shine like those golden autumns Harvey MacNair enjoyed, decked out in his waders.
