This highland Scotch has been prized by monarchs south of the border since Queen Victoria and Prince Albert took the first ever distillery tour on her visit of 1848 after an invitation from the owner John Begg . One mile from Balmoral Castle, at the foot of the Cairngorn mountains, and the crystal clear water of the Scarnock springs.

A limited release of precious few individually numbered bottles, drawn from selected casks held in reserve, to commemorate the day Queen Victoria first visited the Lochnagar distillery in September 1848 and issued a Royal Warrant to what is today, the Royal Lochnagar distillery. To celebrate this noble moment, Royal Lochnagar selected reserve was developed in 1988. The refined flavour of this revered highland single malt scotch whisky will likely attract connoisseurs today, as then.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

Complex nose with toasty notes mingling with honey, nuts and nougat with just a hint of aniseed. Rich and full in the mouth with impression of enormous malt content ! Hints of liquorice and touch of golden syrup. The massive malt mellows out to give beautiful balance and firm texture. A whole range of flavours appear in the mouth and carry through to long, comforting finish.
