Bruce, the founder and owner of Dramfool, says only 500 casks were ever filled with Lochindaal spirit, making it very rare. So you know you need to move quickly to get your hands on this bottling. What probably makes it more unusual is it's finished in a port cask!

Jim McEwan Tasting Notes:
Colour - Tawny Gold Aromas - Opens beautifully on a Maritime peat influence underpinning the spiciness from the bourbon cask and then drifts of the rich port overture rise in harmony and its magical. The peat toasted barley is classic Islay as is the drift of sun dried seaweed & Heather covered Moorlands.
Palate - Its deceptively potent with the spiciness from the bourbon cask working well with the Port overture. Then the peat smoke and the Atlantic Marine freshness provide a unique palate experience that lingers long and transports the mind to this amazing Island of Distilleries!
Finish - It’s a spirit that reflects the Island and its people, warm and welcoming!
