Highland Single Malt Whisky
Bottled By North Star Spirits 70cl / 49%
North Star have unearthed another gem with this 2007 Inchfad, which nowadays could be considered as a lost single malt from an operating distillery.
Inchfad was one of Loch Lomond's experimental heavily-peated single malts made on Lomond stills, but the Inchfad name has now been officially retired for this style and now is only used internally to refer to a different type of blending stock at the distillery.
Anyhoo, there's evidently still some of Loch Lomond's old-school Inchfad out in the wild, as evidenced by North Star's rather tempting Inchfad 2007, bottled in 2021 as a 14-year-old from an Oloroso sherry barrique, no less, which yielded 234 bottles at 49%. Peat and sherry fans take note.
