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.

Overall

A superb fruity, earthy and smoky single cask expression from Loch Lomond

Score 89/100
