Royal Lochnagar 2019 Distillery Exclusive (48%, OB, 5004 Bottles, 2019)

RLG Distillery Exclusive 2019

Royal Lochnagar 2019 Distillery Exclusive whisky review: Rich and malty, gently spiced throughout – a pretty fair representation of Lochnagar’s output, if you’re a fan (like me) then you wont be disappointed with this one. Also this is likely the forerunner for their 175th anniversary celebration in 2020, another good reason to make the trip to Royal Lochnagar distillery this year!

Longmorn 10 Years Old Batch 3 Whisky Review: A little bit spice and a lovely hint of florality on the nose, on the palate this has much more spirit character than cask for me and again I’m drawn to the conclusion that this is a lovely spirit-driven expression thanks to refill cask maturation. Very little oak in here but lots of drinkable Longmorn spirit. 84/100

A Fine Christmas Malt 2019 whisky review: Hard to fault Billy’s tasting notes which describe this one perfectly. This whisky is full of fairground or sweetie shop or possibly even Christmas market flavours such as classic donuts, nut brittle and barley sugars. I was hoping perhaps for a wee bit more sherry influence to tip it into Christmas cake or pudding territory but this is a fine quaffable malt all the same. 84/100
