    Loch Lomond Croftengea 2009 - 2022, 12 years, 46% alc. Bottler: Alba Import (The Alba Trail). Expansion: Refill Hogshead

    Nose: Oh yes, a Croftengea has to start just as diagonally. On the one hand sweet and with some citrus fruits, on the other hand quite dirty looking peat smoke. Cow meadow, sourdough, pollock fried in olive oil with a little lemon juice, parsley and pepper. After that the sweetness increases, vanilla biscuits with sugary glaze.

    Palate: The smoke becomes stronger and spicier. Damp peat smoke and charred wood. In addition, there are tangerines, apricots and some lemon juice, and I can also taste freshly peeled ginger. The impression is rounded off by pepper, thyme, mint and a hint of camphor.

    Finish: Rather medium length, the taste continues seamlessly on the palate. Balanced between spice, smoke and various herbs, complemented by a slightly sour fruit component.

    Conclusion: young and smoky - other distilleries can do the same. But Croftengea remains aromatically special and exciting, which this bottling proves again. 85/100 points (2022)
