Whisky Reviews for Royal Lochnagar 2000

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.39 points

  1. Whisky101 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A nice dram and good value for money. I would not rush out to buy it but I am glad I tried it. 
    • Nose
      Initial nose made me think this is a grain whisky. Then follows a scent of Jam, not too sweet though, a light red fruit dram. The nose gets stronger as you leave this to open up a while. 
    • Taste
      Velvety. Nice, sweetness gives way to more savoury notes. Still jam but now maybe greengage or gooseberry. A drop of water opens up more fruit. 
    • Finish
      Medium, dry then slightly sweet. 

  2. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      ripe to overripe fruits. Very sweet, while easily drifting into the artificial. The wine is also there. There is also a spicy component. Minimal smoke. The alcohol is imperceptible. All in all a very round thing in the nose.
    • Taste
      very soft. The seasoning is more pronounced here than in the nose. The wine also plays a bigger role. Despite the 40%, the alcohol builds up well over time and it gets peppery.
    • Finish
      Dark sweetness flashes. Medium long, spicy finish. An oak taste remains in the mouth.

    A good, unfortunately too tasty tasty everyday whisky
    • Nose
      clearly full-bodied sherry, winter spices, light pepper + chilli, candied oranges, some freshly mown grass
    • Taste
      very mild and balanced, full-bodied, sweet sherry, some dried dates
    • Finish
      short with peppery notes, some smoke

  5. Odessit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Serge Valentin says:

    Royal Lochnagar 2000/2012 'Distiller's Edition' (40%, OB, batch #RL/00-12W)  This baby was finished in muscat wine. Which, frankly, is a little scary since muscat can be very pushy, but you never know... Colour: gold. Nose: we are, in truth, extremely close to the regular 12, despite a few whiffs of ripe apricots and mirabelles floating around. Hold on, those notes do indeed come a little more to the front after just ten seconds, but they never become vulgar, which was my main fear. Mouth: the muscat is a little more pronounced, there’s something slightly floral indeed, but also notes of tinned pineapples and honey. Also golden raisins. The background remains dry and ‘Lochnagary’, which gives you a wee impression of two-storey whisky. Finish: medium, on the same flavours. Bitter chocolate with a little marmalade. Comments: I’d say it’s in the very same league as the 12. It goes down well. SGP:561 - 79 points.

  6. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    For the sample, I thank Nethar. Something more about this whisky I read after the tasting, just like the impressions of my colleagues. Well, finishing after "muscat wine" I would not guess or even know, the acidity was really easy. It's not a bad whisky, but Dalwhinnie 1996 DE I liked more.
    • Nose
      Malt, honey, bitter chocolate, wood. A slight touch of warm spice and citrus peel. (84 b)
    • Taste
      On the tongue of malt honey with a little bit of acidity. Unfortunately, my body is so thin, it's a bit more tricky than I would like, it would probably add a little more volume, those 40% is no miracle. (82 b)

  8. thijs100 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A nice mellow dram, good for everyday dramming, but it won't set your world on fire.
    • Nose
      A floral start transforms into fruitier aromas. Mainly grapes, but also sweet oranges. Oh, and marzipan too. There's some licorice and light oak, along with wet grass. Overall a bit weak though.
    • Taste
      Quite sweet. Blackcurrant tea, figs and spices. Mainly black pepper. Some sugar and nuts. Fairy rich considering the low abv.
    • Finish
      Short and sweet.

    Royal Lochnagar 2000 ‘Distiller’s Edition’ (40%, OB 2012, Muscat finish, RL/00-12W)

    Nose: a floral nose that starts on bergamot and evolves towards leather and fruits. Yellow plums, grapes. Growing sweeter on apricot jam. Nice interaction of grassy and fruity notes. Very light toasted oak. Mouth: quite mild and fruity again, very sweet and relatively oily. Vanilla cake, malty sweetness and sugared cereals. Soft pepper and the return of floral citrus notes. Hints of honeyed Arizona green tea. Finish: rather short, with the same leafy tea notes and sweet grassy notes.

    Classic spirit, quite a wide range of aromas, from floral notes to toasted ones. A relatively gentle finishing and a light dram altogether. Around € 45.

    Score: 81/100
