More info from the website: “The Lighthouse Collection, developed exclusively for Travel Retail the Lighthouse Collection. The series features three distinctive new expressions which have been inspired by the maritime routes and celebrate three historic lighthouses situated near the costal distillery in Wick.

Noss Head: Packaged with a vibrant blue label and tube, the design features an image of the Noss Head lighthouse which the whisky is inspired by. Built in 1849 by Robert Arnot and named after the Old Norse word ‘Snos’, the lighthouse represents the nose-shaped headland where it is situated. Matured in American Oak ex bourbon casks the malt inside has a full bodied, sweet and spicy taste with hints of coconut, lemons and oranges and a long-lasting finish.”
