13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.80 points

  1. Pollenflug scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    More is hardly possible for the money.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Refreshing, sweet and fruity, vanilla, oranges, cereals without end, a hint of herbs, alcohol is very well integrated
    • Taste
      90 90
      Sweet and grainy, vanilla, caramel, honey, a few peppercorns, plenty of grains, beautiful peach notes, herbs, milk chocolate, orange peel and oak spice. The alcohol is very well integrated again. With a little water fruity and even more harmonious.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long, sweet-kräutrig, vanilla, cereals, canned peach, bright fruits, herbs, oak with delicate bitterness

  2. schero scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    So who like me Bourbon smells like, but not taste so cool, is very right here. For long stretches, this could be a bourbon, but it is still much riper than most Americans and lighter. I like it.
    • Nose
      88 88
      A broadside of vanilla, lots of bourbon from the barrel, pastry sweetness, warm bakery, juice oranges, malty and even a bit greasy, slightly acidic, with time it gets a bit metallic
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sweet and mild onset, lots of vanilla - Bourbon memories are awakened again, a little creamy, then directly a bit drier and peppery, a light sour pinch, orange sweetness, pleasant oak spice behind
    • Finish
      85 85
      Nice warming and spicy, vanilla, noticeable oak, so a 50:50 bourbon scotch blend should go down

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    convinces me especially on the palate - because it fits easily - beautiful blend of fruit, wood and the best of the power of a not so old malts - great without water edible
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fresh in the glass, he has a delicate adhesive note and a little too much Firstfill white oak - there comes directly Sägewerkflavour with me.

      With more time, it becomes much more pleasant, toasted oak, fragrant light oak boards, herbs, vanilla cream pudding, apple jelly, delicate citrus acid mixes with honey, gingerbread spice
    • Taste
      90 90
      Exotic fruit cocktail with mint and pepper - very creamy notes of wood, chilli, vanilla, toasted notes, a touch of gum, every now and then the strong woody aromas sparkle very intensively on the palate (unbitter) - very harmonious and delicious - very long chewable
    • Finish
      88 88
      long warming but not alcoholic, slightly dry, peppery, beautiful oak wood aromas - no bitterness - medium length

  5. Mr. Moe scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    A great batch was made here, appetizing, very sweet breakfast cereal notes. Good barrels were selected here. Again a proof that the new management works. Keep it up, Loch Lomond is on the right track.
    • Nose
      Very fresh, sweet fruit and a lot of cereals, one thinks to have breakfast cereal in front of him, malt and in the background a fine bourbon-vanilla note, very discreet. In general, round and balanced, the alcohol seems very well involved and does not sting the nose at all.
    • Taste
      A cereal bar, sugared, with wheat grains, malt, you get hungry, again the sweet breakfast cereal with milk and honey. Fresh as the morning dew, sweet bright fruits, even some citrus lime after.
    • Finish
      Long lasting, sweet on the palate, great maltiness and everything about grains that gives the field, no woodiness at all, at the end a shot of vanilla powder.

  6. DenisL scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Balance (22)
    Good (87)
    Go
    • Nose
      Vanilla, hot bread, wax and yellow fruit ... banana ... pear and paper ... a drop of acetone ... raw vegetables (22)
      Go
    • Taste
      Vanilla and spices and wood, waxed paper, milk chocolate (22)
      Go
    • Finish
      The finish is woody, spicy, vanilla and vegetable bitterness ... banana peel ... apple juice ... soap with rose scent???? (21)
      Go

  7. DerDennis! scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Interesting, fresher and stronger paints from a very pleasant bourbon barrel. Great nose with atypical, intense aromas for me.

    Overall, a very beautiful, varied and unusual paints, which definitely needs some water.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh, sweet, spicy, overripe bananas, malt, sawdust, hair spray, nutty ... nutmeg, pepper, mint, grapes, grated lemon peel
    • Taste
      88 88
      Cool, fresh, nutty, light sweetness, tropical fruits, honey, woody, mint tea, peppery spiciness, raisins, vanilla, clove.
      Some water brings out the fruits better and he wins clearly.
    • Finish
      87 87
      medium to long, pleasantly woody and nutty, fresh peppermint, tart honey sweetness, getting slightly dry

  8. Kensay scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    Fresh orange juice, sweets, ripe pear
    Spicy, first gently burns with red pepper, then wraps with spices
    The finish is spicy, vanilla, pepper and spices, the average duration

    with water, the littlemill notes come out even stronger, and the vanilla sweetness increases.

    Conclusion: So blind I would have typed here smooth on a Littlemill. In the nose presents a very interesting and delicious malt, but in the finish he falls off unfortunately, I did not like so much. Overall, but a great whisky with a good price-performance ratio. Where does a 17-year-old standard bottling in cask strength get for this money? Purchase recommendation !!!
    • Nose
      89 89
      nice round: bright fruit (peach), and a full load of malt / grain, hay, some caraway, light caramel, vanilla, the alcohol is well integrated, when the whisky heats up slowly, it adds a herbal note to the bergamot / earl Gray tea and chamomile reminiscent
    • Taste
      87 87
      Again, typical Bourbon Fass flavors such as vanilla, honey, bright fruits, again a lot of cereals, and herbal notes, reminiscent of Littlemill!
    • Finish
      84 84
      medium, not very pronounced, cereals, herbs, slightly bitter oak and some honey sweetness
