Whisky Reviews for Campbeltown Loch 05-year-old SpD

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.70 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    a young blend, which is characterized by its light maritime peat influences. Could also go through as a young malt. Is not overly complex, but you should not expect that in the price range either. A pleasant everyday dram, if nothing has to be complicated.
    • Nose
      fruity, a little pear, malty, bread dough, subtle peat notes.
    • Taste
      mild and soft, again some pear, but also peat notes and a spicy pepperiness, unfortunately also a few metallic notes of the youth.
    • Finish
      fruity, slightly peaty, slightly maritime, slightly tart.

  3. HunterRomario scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    According to available information, this blend includes Longrow and Sprigbank. Although it does not look very attractive in its very light color, it has something to offer in its category, I recommend it to taste.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruit (mainly apples) with some honey and peat, citrus, I even feel Laphroaig's iodine. Aroma is interesting, lighter, but very good blend. (83 b)
    • Taste
      The body is thinner, a bit sparse, with peat, honey, wood, which is mainly in the flavor. (78 b)

  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Very quaffable Campbeltowner
    and a good introduction to peaty whisky in my opinion. With a price tag of only
    22 EUR it is quite affordable as well. Thanks, Pat!
    • Nose
      The nose starts fresh
      and fruity (think apples and apricots) with a soft note of peat underneath
      which translates into leather, floral elements, hay and a bit of silt. The
      first whiff even reminds me a bit of Ledaig, but once the jute and cardboard
      appear on the nose, I know this is Springbank.
    • Taste
      Quite oily on the
      palate and immediately spicy. Mildly salty, again. Loads of sweet malt before
      the fruit reveals itself in the shape of orchard fruits and a bit of apricot.
    • Finish
      The finish is rather
      short with a smidgen of oak at the death.

    • Nose
      Fresh, fruity (apples, apricots), leathery
    • Taste

      Rather short, oaky
