Royal Lochnagar 12 DB in North America?

Postby pmullin » Thu Nov 26, 2009 3:51 am

Hi,

Has anyone seen the Royal Lochnagar 12 distillery bottling for sale in North America? I managed to pick up a bottle of the Distiller's Edition while in Scotland earlier this year, but would like to pick up a bottle of its "mate" as well.

Thanks,
PM

It is my understanding the Lochanger OBs are no longer brought into the US and haven't been for some years. The only bottles I think you would find are in small stores where know one knows what they are.

I picked up a bottle a year or two ago at Bottles 'n Bins in Monterey California. But as Ganga pointed out RL (meaning the 12, the Select Reserve made a comeback this year) is not being imported to the US anymore.

Ganga & pkt77242,

Thanks for taking the time to reply. This pretty well confirms the conclusion that I had been coming to after a survey of some of the major online retailers. There were a few sightings of the Select Reserve and some IB expressions, but absolutely no sign of the RL 12.

Cheers!
