Smoking Ember Profile

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Smoking Ember was the digestif course in Lombard Brands’ Illustration Malts series. Comprised of three blended malt whiskies, the range was designed to offer a different dram to enjoy before, during and after dinner.

Smoking Ember, as the name suggests, was a peated whisky featuring mostly Islay malts and bottled at 40% abv. Its official tasting notes describe the expression as ‘full bodied… well-balanced with a hint of sweetness and a fine, lingering aftertaste betraying its origins near the sea’.
