During St. Andrews's Open, sample some limited-edition single malts.

While the 150th Open golf championship tees off at St. Andrews right now, Scotland is also known for its whiskey, so it only makes sense to drink some new bottles during the event.

While you watch sports history unfold, you can sip Loch Lomond's The Open Course Edition 2022 and The Open Special Edition 2022 limited-edition single malts. 

As a result of its rebranding in 2020, the Highland distillery currently offers a wide range of single malts and blends.

With a 22-year-old single malt distilled in both the straight neck and swan neck stills, the Open Course Edition 2022 $300 is a premium version of the duo. Initially aged in American oak barrels, the whiskey was finished for several years in Bordeaux claret wine barrels aged in the Haut-Medoc region. It has notes of stewed apples, pears, cherries and dark chocolate, and was bottled at cask strength at 48.2 percent ABV.

The second of the pair is the most affordable option. It is a single malt whiskey aged in American oak and finished in Bordeaux red wine barrels for a period of time without an age statement. This non-chill filtered and 46 percent ABV whisky was created by master distiller Michael Henry with the help of gold ambassador Colin Montgomerie. There are notes of peach, lime, fudge and oak spice on the finish, as well as a hint of soft smoke.


The whiskies are a bit hard to find right now, but you can find them at select online retailers. And who knows, sipping while you watch golf might even get you into it.
