A superb new whisky from the chaps at Adelphi Distillers (owners of Ardnamurchan Distillery) the Maclean's Nose is blended to have a West Coast Character with both a high malt content (70%) and a high proportion of ex-sherry casks.
The whisky is named in tribute to Ardnamurchan's long association with renowned whisky critic, Charles Maclean, as well as a convenient local landmark on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula which is featured on the label (innovatively made from leftover barley husks).
