Gordon & MacPhail's 'Pride of the Lowlands' Vatted Malt

Postby Deactivated Member » Mon Sep 11, 2006 11:51 am

For a long time I've been trying to clarify (from Jim Murray himself, among others - but with no response) what the main constituent Malt is, in G & M's 'Pride of the Lowland's 12 Year old. Mr Murray states (in all editions of his Whisky Bible now) that. "the character of a certain distillery shines clearly through". I THINK that it's Auchentoshan, but a good friend who lives in East Lothian, says that it's Glenkinchie.
Does anyone know for a fact - or can anyone else give an inspired guess ?

I think you'll find that 'Pride of the Lowlands' is chiefly made up of Rosebank malts. That distillery provides the "character" Jim talks about - though there is a significant proportion of Auchentoshan and a lesser amount of Glenkinchie.
