Ed's review

Colour: Amber; oily in the glass with tears that develop slowly.

Palate: Medium mouthfeel. Terry's chocolate orange. Soft fruit, vanilla cream, gentle smoke. A savoury smoked meat note. Alcohol is well integrated.

Finish: Fruit, candied orange peel, and a touch of spice. Soft smoke lingers, like memories of the campfire.

Overall: A lovely dram with quality spirit, gentle peat, and port finish all in good balance.

About this Lady of The Glen whisky

Ruadh Maor is the peated whisky produced at Glenturret distillery. The whisky has a light fruity character with soft peated notes. Matured in a hogshead and finished in a first fill ex-tawny port cask by independent bottler Lady Of The Glen.

A classic highland malt with a twist, a peated expression from this distillery offers an alternative take on the smoky style compared to its coastal cousins. A light and fresh smoke character is complimented with a finishing period in an ex-tawny port cask which offers the spirit notes of silky chocolate and BBQ’d herbs.

Meet The Founder

Gregor Hannah

Lady Of The Glen was founded by, and is still run by, Gregor Hannah. From a young age, Gregor developed a keen interest in whisky, influenced by his father, a Scottish piper. His father would often receive bottles of whisky as tokens of appreciation for his performances at various celebrations, including weddings and Burn's Nights. Fascinated by the wide array of bottles, each with its own unique colours, shape, and label, Gregor developed a strong appreciation for scotch whisky.

Two and a half decades later, while working at a bar, Gregor's learned about independent bottling. Here, he gained in-depth knowledge about the history and techniques of sourcing and bottling unique whiskies. This led him to establish Lady of The Glen in 2012. The brand is independently owned and specialises in sourcing and bottling rare, single-cask whiskies from various regions in Scotland.
