Description

The Flying Scotsman Lner Class A1 4472

The locomotive was built in Doncaster becoming the first locomotive of the newly formed London and North Eastern Railway (LNER). It was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley as part of the A1 class – the most powerful locomotives used by the LNER at that time.

The locomotive set two world records for steam traction, becoming the first steam locomotive to be officially authenticated at reaching 100 miles per hour (160.9 km/h) on 30 November 1934, and then setting a record for the longest non-stop run by a steam locomotive when it ran 422 miles (679 km) on 8 August 1989 while in Australia.

This special edition has been created to celebrate the inaugural run of The Flying Scotsman in February 2016.

Only 10,000 bottles released worldwide.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of fresh fruits mingle with sultanas and black raisins that open up in layers, eventually revealing a deeper darker side. In the taste this darker side dominates at first, with currants and rich black chocolate being foremost.

Then both bitterness and sweetness present themselves in equal proportions gradually fading into a long finish.
