HIGHLY LIMITED EDITION COLIN MONTGOMERIE RELEASE TEES OFF
New triple cask matured single malt commemorates iconic Monty three wood shot
Loch Lomond Whiskies, The Official Spirit of The Open, has released its first triple cask matured single malt Scotch whisky.
The new and highly limited edition expression was created as a tribute to Loch Lomond Whiskies golf ambassador Colin Montgomerie’s glorious three wood shot that helped secure victory for Europe in the 1997 Ryder Cup.
Matured in refill American oak before being matured for up to six months in a combination of first fill Limousin oak and Oloroso sherry casks, the Loch Lomond Three Wood Matured 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky unites the worlds of single malt Scotch whisky and golf.
Colin Montgomerie – better known to his fans as Monty – is one of the UK’s most successful golfers.
Since turning professional in 1987, Montgomerie has recorded 53 tournament victories across the world and became European #1 in 1993 – a position he held for an unprecedented seven years.
Ryder Cup success followed as a player including his legendary three wood tee shot on the 18th hole at Valderrama in 1997 that secured victory for Europe by a single point and gained him “Shot of the Year”.
He later famously led Europe to success as Captain at Celtic Manor in 2010.
“As a proud Scot I know that Scotland is world-renowned for both our whisky and our unrivalled golf courses. I am thrilled that the Loch Lomond Three Wood Matured 25 Year Old Single Malt will celebrate both worlds.
“My shot at Valderrama is one that will live long in the memory for me. To know that it has inspired a Single Malt and one which carries my signature is a huge honour. I hope that golfers and whisky fans alike will enjoy a dram as much as I have.”
Created by Montgomerie in partnership with Loch Lomond Master Blender Michael Henry, the Loch Lomond Three Wood Matured 25 Year Old is a beautifully balanced and highly limited edition single malt Scotch Whisky. Offering fruit notes of peach and pear, with subtle floral and perfumed notes, it is enhanced by cloves and cinnamon on the finish.
Presented in an elegant black and red gift box that celebrates Monty’s golfing achievements, the Loch Lomond Triple Wood Matured 25 Year Old has an ABV of 46.3% and is available globally with an RRP of £250.
- Maturation in refill American oak casks from Loch Lomond’s onsite cooperage complements the distillery’s signature fruity character while the lightly toasted style of French European oak adds hints of refined spice. Additional maturation in Oloroso oak casks delivers subtle perfumed floral notes.
