- Product Information
Producer Loch Lomond Distillery Co Age 12 Year Old Bottle Size 70cl Alc. Volume 46% Bottler Official Region Highland
DescriptionWe were impressed by the depth and complexity of this release. The bottling's gold medal at the World Spirits Competition suggests that we're not alone. Loch Lomond state that the whisky is made from spirits "aged in three types of cask - bourbon, refill and re-charged" (Do they mean re-charred?). This very well balanced dram combines stone fruit and citrus with an earthy roasting oak depth.
- Tasting Notes
Staff Tasting Notes
Nose: Baked peaches start out, blending in a subtle coffee and mocha note. Citrus and white fruits come through over sweet cereal.
Palate: Apples and pears sprinkled with citrus juices. An autumn forest floor note appears - moss and fallen leaves. Citrus zest joins a little vanilla above caramelising sugars and a hint of dark roasted malt.
Finish: A medium length of charred, smoking oak and more of that earthy leaf quality. Sweet biscuit notes come and go.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Crisp green apple, ripe pear and refreshing citrus lemon with background notes of golden cereal.
Palate: Orchard fruits and lemon meringue. The deep fruity character of pear leads into citrus lemon, vanilla meringue and light biscuit sweetness.
Finish: Medium length with gentle wood smoke and a lingering peaty tang.
