What they say
Distilled March 2006 and bottled April 2017, matured in cask #40 selected by Michael Henry Master Blender.
Official tasting notes:
- Plenty of fiery peat then the sweetness ramps up with some exotic fruit salad and barley sugar and an outburst of spicy ginger and cinnamon notes at the end.
What I say
The Loch Lomond distillery bottling (may also have been available to sample at whisky festivals). unfortunately Loch Lomond do not have a visitor centre so this bottle really is only available as an invite only/special for visitors to the distillery.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Old Sauternes (7/20), medium-fine tears and long, fine legs.
- Nose: Vanilla and smoke, charcoal, coal-tar soap, malted barley, touches of coppery metallic, coal dust, honey and caramel.
- Taste: Orange zest + lemon and lime citrus, medium-light bodied, ginger, sherbet bursts, softer fudge, caramel, copper tang, earthy redcurrant, elderberry and blackcurrant.
- Finish: long, spiced, pepper, turf/peat, chocolate/cocoa powder and coffee grounds.
A superb fruity, earthy and smoky single cask expression from Loch Lomond
