  2. notesofmalt scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Loch Lomond Croftengea 2007 - 2021, 14 years, 46% alc. Bottler: Home of Malts (Director's Choice). Expansion: Bourbon barrel No. 205 (refill hogshead)

    Nose: The peat smoke is there and looks pleasantly sweet. Odor of sourdough, grain and slightly phenolic smoke. Behind it I find a clear vanilla aroma and light citrus fruits, some leather, brown sugar candy. With a little time, the citrus fruits gain weight, I especially notice lemon zest.

    Palate: It starts out sweet and smoky, a bit meaty. The citrus fruits are there immediately. In addition, pleasantly mild spices, ginger and a little pepper, slightly mineral, salt. There are also various herbs, including thyme. Then the peat smoke gets stronger and takes the lead.

    Finish: Medium length, the smoke dominates here with a creamy character, the herbs are hardly absent. In addition, slight echoes of BBQ sauce.

    Conclusion: a nice single barrel, classic crofengea. In the nose, these exciting and slightly musty sourdough aromas as well as the already special smoke aromas have always been something special for me. 84/100 points (2021)
