    For each of their five [Golf Open] sponsorship years, Loch Lomond’s master blender Michael Henry will be collaborating with a golfer for unique annual releases. This first Autograph Edition is a collaborative effort between Henry & golfer Paul Lawrie.

    N: That’s the ticket, 18 years of maturation providing all sorts of oiliness as well as a distinct Irishness. Some peat too?

    T: With a firm and deliberate direction, this is a decently aged straight-talker.

    F: Long and true. More indications of some peat, or charring perhaps.

    C: Mannochmore meets Caol Ila? Perhaps not a beginners malt but a fine start for the Autograph series.

    Cute, completely non-trivial, interesting profile.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Iriska, herbal infusion, anise, baking, herbs, ascorbic acid tablet, baby vitamins, vanilla, spices for canning, fruit caramel, cucumber, pear. Very interesting and unusual profile, I do not remember something like that.

    Not the best Loch Lomond expression I recently tasted. Quite alcoholic taste. Nose is fine, but taste and finish stay behind. It was a sample only which did not convince me to buy a fool bottle. Water does not improve things for the better.
