Old Rhosdhu 25 Year Old (1994) - Cooper's Choice
The Cooper's Choice range of single cask whiskies from Scotland's finest distilleries are releases from the Family owned Independent Bottlers; The Vintage Malt Whisky Company. The range is a homage to the passion and skill of the Coopers, the craftsmen, who build the barrels for maturation of Scotch Whisky. The range focuses on the impact of maturation in oak, and includes several obscure and rare wood finishes.
Old Rhosdhu was the name (or one of the names) given to single malt scotch whisky distilled at the Loch Lomond distillery before it's temporary closure in 2000. This 25 Year Old Malt Old Rhosdhu was distilled in 1994 and matured for 25 Years in a Bourbon Cask.
The bottling showcases the lovely light elegant malt that Old Rhosdhu could be alongside bold oak spice and nut character.
From the bottler: "Oaky spices and...fruit. Touch of walnuts, toasted oats and cereal notes. Cedar and spice. Medium length."
