SMWS 98.1 Lomond 1972 70cl
This is an extremely rare bottle of Lomond single malt distilled in April 1972 and bottled in August 1992 by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
Lomond single malt has only ever been bottled twice, both times by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This is the .1 version, and so is the first-ever bottling.
Many people confuse this whisky with Loch Lomond single malt, but it has nothing do with spirit from that distillery.
Two pot stills (one wash and one spirit) were installed at the old Dumbarton grain distillery in 1938, which produced Inverleven single malt. In 1956, a single Lomond still was also installed. The liquid from the wash pot still was distilled a second time through this new still to create Lomond single malt. We believe this malt was produced as an experiment for only a few years, which explains its rarity.
