What they say
This is a Claxton’s bottling of heavily peated single malt Scotch whisky from the Loch Lomond distillery. It was placed in a single hogshead cask back in February 2005 and left to mature for 13 years before being bottled at cask strength without any chill-filtration or additional colours. Just 286 bottles were produced.
Official tasting notes:
- Nose: Banana fritters and charcoal, with a pinch of white pepper.
- Palate: Salted caramel, cut grass, lemon zest and rye toast.
- Finish: Soft salinity, mixed with continued citrus freshness
What I say
Distilled at Loch Lomond from peated malted barley and matured for over 13 years in cask #1962413. This example was bottled by Claxton’s at 57.5% ABV, producing 286 bottles.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Yellow gold (8/20), medium- large tears and thick legs.
- Nose: Soft apple fruit, pear, touch of lemon, white oak and white pepper, malted barley, estery ripe banana, plus some fried banana, fritters, vanilla custard and wafts of smoke.
- Taste: Medium-full bodied, oily, more banana again ripe and fried, salted caramel, citrus zest, lemon and grapefruit, vanilla custard, slightly eggy/touch of sulphur and toasted cereals.
- Finish: Long, zesty, salty, ginger spice and gentle smoke.
lovely, a really nice thick and greasy fried banana and smoke element in here as well as plenty of malty cereal and fruity spirit.
