  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I really enjoyed it. I'm betting quite a bit of it was distilled in those straight-necked pot stills, similar to the ones that were used in the now defunct Littlemill distillery.
    • Nose
      Extremely grassy, with a touch of wet cardboard as well. Some Werther's Original, but deliciously fruity as well. There's definitely some pink grapefruit and lime in here. It reminds of Littlemill a bit, but with more vanilla. Not very complex though.
    • Taste
      Very creamy mouthfeel. Sweet brown sugar at first, but then the fruitiness takes over. Pink grapefruit for sure, as well as some lemon zest. There's the cardboard again, but also some white pepper. This is indeed very Littlemill-esque.
    • Finish
      Fruit, mainly. On the shorter side.

    Some nice and some not so nice aspects
    about this whisky. First of all Loch Lomond must be commended for
    presenting their malt in a natural way; also the organic concept is
    very laudable and kind of deserves a buy in itself. The quality
    though is rather so-so. The nose plays it simple but quite nice, but
    on the tongue the malt disintegrates into its parts: The alcohol is
    not well integrated and the casks didn't do a proper job.
    All in all it's still an okay-ish
    whisky. Loch Lomond has an interesting and unusual profile of its
    own, but the whisky doesn't quite reach the standard quality of other
    Scotch distilleries.
    • Nose
      Without water: Intense, sweet oatmeal
      cookies with vanilla and a touch of lemon rind. Sweet cake dough and
      yeast while the malty note in the background only shines through very
      lightly. Some banana and peach. Freshly mown lawn. Quite pungent
      alcohol. Nutty and slightly sour walnut notes.
      With water: More delicate, somewhat
      floral, but the oatmeal flavour is still very dominant.
    • Taste
      Without water: Sweet and pungent
      arrival. Sour apples, grass, yoghurt and oatmeal. Unfortunately the
      alcohol feels not very well integrated, because the development of
      the malt is quite hot and rough on the palate and the flavour
      develops into something chemical.
      With water: Softer, the fruity notes
      are more prominent, but the development isn't getting much better.
    • Finish
      When swallowing the whisky, the alcohol
      is much too prominent and too rough. It's only in the finish, about 5
      seconds after swallowing, that the whisky gets better again and
      compensates its weakness with creamy notes of brioche, raisins and
      some orange zest.
