Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail
Region: Highlands, Scotland
Special feature: Distillery 1983 closed
Nose: orange juice, cedar wood and mild tobacco aromas in the first impression. Then mango and cotton candy, wood extract, oak and eucalyptus. The Glenlochy looks sturdy, dry and complex. In the background, a very mild smoke flavor and a pinch of sea salt.
Palate: Again very robust. First summer apples and woods, then menthol. Caramel and fleshy aromas follow, with delicate bitter notes: almonds, oak and colorful pepper.
Finish: Very long, initially quite mild, but comes again with lots of wood again. Pepper, spices, heather and mild peat smoke.
Conclusion: Hammer Paint!
