INTRODUCING LOCHLEA 'HARVEST EDITION' (FIRST CROP)
Introducing Lochlea 'Harvest Edition' (First Crop)!
The second expression in an annual limited edition series, Lochlea 'Harvest Edition' (First Crop) follows on from Lochlea ‘Sowing Edition’ (First Crop), which launched in March 2022.
Lochlea ‘Harvest Edition’ (First Crop) is inspired by the busy harvest season on Lochlea Farm, when the barley is ready to be harvested and eventually used for next year’s whisky.
The bottle’s ashy coral red label and carton were chosen to reflect the summer sunsets and Ayrshire soil, which changes to a deep red hue once the barley has been harvested.
Matured in Port hogsheads, Oloroso Sherry butts and first-fill Bourbon barrels, Lochlea 'Harvest Edition' (First Crop) sits at 46% ABV and is non chill-filtered with no colouring.
Enjoy notes of pear drops, stewed apples and oat biscuits on the nose, giving way to flavours of strawberries, violet and toasted marshmallows on the palate. The perfect dram to enjoy as the seasons begin to change!
