A blend of malt and pot still whiskies but originally a pure pot still whiskey from the Locke’s Distillery in Kilbeggan, the oldest licensed distillery in the world. The first mature cask of the re-launched brand was tapped by the grand-daughter of the last John Locke on 17 July 1992.
Review and Tasting

Clear, pale golden amber.
Surprisingly floral with daffodil with leathery barley.
Slightly sweet brioche and orchard fruits but with underlying drying toastyness and spice.
Toasty cereal with buttery pastry and light cinnamon spice.
