LOCH LOMOND Original ~ HIGHLANDS, SCOTLAND
80/100 - The Distiller Score
A satisfying, subtly peated single malt Scotch whisky from Loch Lomond. The distillery is renowned for being able to produce a multitude of whisky styles, including single malt, single grain, and blends.
Nose - Caramel, oily walnut, a touch of dusty oak smokiness.
Palate - Digestive biscuits and ginger snaps. Subtle vegetal notes develop later on.
Finish - Diced almond, coffee bean, toasted malt.
Over the course of Loch Lomond’s existence, the distillery has released seven different malts. Four of them were destined for blending, the remaining three were intended to be bottled as single malt whiskies, though most have been released as such over the years. The name Loch Lomond is used for single malt releases though it is also used for a blended Scotch produced onsite using both grain and malt whisky.
