Whisky Reviews for Loch Lomond 17-year-old

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.26 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This whisky has developed that typical style that over-20YO Littlemills have become known for, but at a fraction of the price. The Littlemill stills have kept on doing their good work also between their new walls.
    • Nose

      'Lange vingers', cookies with vanilla sugar and lemon zest. Pastry dough, porridge and blood orange.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Blood orange, honey, porridge, vanilla, caster sugar, grain cookie and yellow raisin.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Caster sugar, grapefruit, orange, biscuit, raisin, almond, cocoa and vanilla.

  2. HammerHead scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A whisky with a light and very grainy feel to it, almost like a single grain.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very light, floral and grainy. Barleysugar, a corn like sweetness, shortbread cookies, vanilla, green apples, peach, pear, lychees, pineapple, some light sugary fruit syrup, vegetal and grassy, some glue, lavender.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Quite some alcohol, vanilla, cereal, cookie dough, fruity, pineapple, pear, a dusty fresh (sandal) wood note and a clear herbal bitterness with some white pepper added.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Short to medium in lenght: still grainy with vanilla and quite a profound wood bitterness which somewhat obscures the (tropical) fruitiness of the nose and taste.

  3. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    An excellent price-quality ratio. But this is not your 'standard' whisky. I like it a lot!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Yeah! Classic Loch Lomond, loads of people won't understand this whisky and won't like it. It has the typical nose, grain, brine and hardy stuff.
      Vanilla is also very present. Some chocolatechip cookie and hint of citrus.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Vanilla, oranges and again the very typical Loch Lomond signature. Little flower notes are here too.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Quite long length. Got vanilla, savoury notes and fades away with some ginger and citrus.

  4. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Yowzah! Now that's what I call intensity. Nothing shy about this one. Also nothing subtle, but we don't always need subtlety, now do we?

    Chockfull of dusty cereals, creamy porridge, sweet sticky honey, and corn syrup. A slight solvent / glue note, likely imparted by the 1st-fill-bourbon barrels, but nothing disturbing.

    Peppery and sweet on the tongue, with oodles of honey and vanillin, then a herbal / acidic kick toward the end. Long, sweet finish.

    A great drinking malt, and a real bang-for-your-buck buy.

    A Bourbon Bomb, you can tell it's some good stuff as you open it.
    The flavor of this one is super concentrated, like a high ester Jamaican Rum. Too highly concentrated fruity flavor results in a nail polish, paint, gasoline smell of it. Give it a litle bit more time, as it will definately opens up.

  8. HunterRomario scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Cereal, classically malted, in muesli, vanilla and candied ginger. Above all, fruitiness. (84 b)
    Taste: Pungent, spicy, malty, cereal. Oatmeal. The aftertaste is very spicy and expressive, it gradually dries out, the complete finish is spicy and a bit tannin. (86 b)
    Points: 85
