Lombard whiskies currently available in the U.S.

July 11th, 2009

Richard Lombard-Chibnall noticed my favorable review of his Brora a while back here. He also read some of your additional comments and queries about the Lombard line of whiskies, what’s available, and where you can source them.

So, I think I can help you with the answers to your questions. Below some information I received from Richard, along with a table listing what’s currently available in the U.S.

We were delighted with your recent review of our Brora 1982 and read, with interest, the comments on your blog thereafter. Here is a brief summary on our USA situation.  The portfolio is currently represented in the USA by Vici Wines and Spirits (Mike Gonzalez and Chuck Squires).  Their details as follows.  Vici would be the contact reference on what Lombard Single Malts are available in different outlets, throughout the USA:

Mr. Mike Gonzalez – Email: mike@viciwineandspirits.com      

Some of your contributing blog writers mention our Lombard Dailuaine 1973 (very few left, but still available), the prospect of a Springbank 40yr being released (1969 distillation) and how difficult it is to source Lombard Single Malt bottlings.  Below is a list showing some of the single malt scotch bottlings we have available, currently lying stateside.
 
I can confirm that yes, Lombard does have casks of Springbank 1969 and plan to bottle in near future.

 Thank you Richard for the updated information! So, if you’re  looking for any of these bottlings, contact Chuck or Mike at Vici.

(And just to be clear here, I have no financial interest in Lombard more than any other whisky brand. In fact I have never even spoken to Vici myself. I’m just passing along the information to you that they provided because of your interest in Lombard.)

    And would you look at that…not an 80 proof bottling in the bunch, and most of them 100! Thanks for some serious scotch, Richard!

  2. Thank you John! The Jewels of Scotland are the premium selection of Single Malts available from Lombard. Aside from some of our really old bottlings (ie, the Glen Grant’64 and Springbank’65), they have a benchmark bottling strength of 50%alc.vol -our preferred strength, to best optimise the character of both Single Malt and cask.

  3. […] Malt Advocate informs us that Lombard Whiskies are now available in the US. […]

    I’ve now had Lombard’s 13 yo Springbank and 13 yo Bruichladdich, and both are stunning. I’m trying now to find out where to get their Clynelish.

  5. Jared Card says:

    anyone who is having prooblems finding these malts feel free to send me an e-mail and I will get you to them. So far I have found all of them. glbljc@hotmail.com

    Cheers
