For the 40th anniversary of Moon Import, Pepi Mongiardino has selected special whiskeys to be proposed in the Lawless series.
The first single malt whiskey is the famous Clynelish distilled in 1997 and bottled in 2019 after 22 years of aging.
Moon import Clynelish 1997 Lawless is considered one of the best whiskeys in the world.
Twenty-two years of aging in single cask Hogshead have made this whiskey exceptional.
Fragrant with a classic hint of brackish, smoke, burnt wood and the scent of Scozzia earth.
The only 235 bottles in the world make it extremely rare.
Like the whole Moon Import selection, this single malt also refines in Scotland where it is subsequently bottled.
The whiskeys of the Moon Import selection come from original barrels, aged in Scotland and individually selected and bottled in the same place, as Scotland is the region of the world where the maturation of alcohol is the best and most regular compared to all the others countries.
The color of the whiskey of the Moon Import selection is determined by the duration of aging in oak barrels, but also by the product contained in the barrel in its previous use.
For example, if the cask has contained Sherry for a certain period, the single malt whiskey of the Moon Import selection will absorb the tannins and will have a darker color than if the cask previously contained another distillate.
