  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Killyloch was a shortlived malt whisky distilled at the Moffat (Garnheath) grain distilling complex.  Glen Flagler was distilled here as wel, but in another still, so that is technically another whisky. There was a third still which produced so called Islebrae, but this malt whisky has never officially been bottled.  Production of Killyloch began in 1965 and ceased in the early 1970s.
    • Nose
      Astringent and sharp at first nosing. Lemon and lime. Orange peel. Floral notes and cut grass. Nettle and heather as well. Some garden mint. Later on Pronounced aroma of new leather.
    • Taste
      Hot, spicy and zesty. Esters of kiwi and green apples. Grapefuit bitterness. Hints of bergamot. Toasted oak as well. A little vanilla. Honey. The palate reminds me of the high strength Cadenhead Authentic Collection bottles of the 90's.
    • Finish
      Medium long with spices of black pepper and clove. Almost medicinal. Pine. Liquorice. Becomes salty at the end.
