Friar John Cor ‘The Cask Strength Congregation Batch’ – Chapter 2


The Friar John Cor ‘The Cask Strength Congregation Batch’ – Chapter 2, was matured in a selection of Bourbon, STR & Peated Rum casks. As with all Lindores bottlings it has no added colouring, is non-chill filtered and bottled onsite at the batch cask strength of 60.9%. 

The introduction of the peated casks which originally held rum, gives a very exciting point of difference to our unpeated spirit. The end result is just fantastic with a complex Whisky with syrupy fruity sweetness balanced perfectly with deep earthy peated notes that compliment perfectly in this unique Lindores Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The design of the eye-catching black bottle, mirroring the Exclusive 1494 First Release Bottle, draws on several elements of Lindores Abbey’s history, most obviously the dramatic black colour which is inspired by the black cloth tunics worn by the Lindores monks back in 1494. This unique bottle shape is also in homage to the magnificent stone pillars which would have been found throughout the Abbey, the remains of which can still be found in the ruins today.

This batch was quite possibly our most anticipated release yet, with the Chapter 1 selling out across the UK in just a few days from its release date.
