Flora & Fauna

Scotland's wildlife is typical of the north west of Europe, although several of the larger mammals such as the Lynx, Brown Bear, Wolf, Elk and Walrus were hunted to extinction in historic times. The flora of the country is varied incorporating both deciduous and coniferous woodland and moorland and tundra species. from Wikipedia

No this isn't a National Geographic special, though that would be awesome to see, it's a tasting of two offerings by independent bottler Flora and Fauna. The Rosebank 12 year and the Mortlach 16 year.

Join us next time when we'll be tasting the Auchentoshan 10 year and Glenfarclas 10 year.

    At about 31 minutes in Michael says, “I’m not a pro.”

    Yes you are sir. You all are. 🙂

    I should point out that the Flora & Fauna series is not from an independent bottler but from Diageo. These are limited bottlings of single malts, not widely distributed, from their distilleries that don’t figure in the Classic Malts Selection.

    The labels do indeed feature local flora and fauna, as you say; but the series has recently been renamed Distillery Malts. The full list is:

    Auchroisk 10 year old
    Benrinnes 15 year old
    Dailuaine 16 year old
    Glen Spey 12 year old
    Glenlossie 10 year old
    Inchgower 14 year old
    Linkwood 12 year old
    Mannochmore 12 year old
    Mortlach 16 year old
    Strathmill 12 year old

    Hope this helps, and very best wishes.
