Whisky Reviews for Loch Lomond Original

19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.02 points

  1. Crann feàrna scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Entry level Loch Lomond. Nothing spectacular. A ‘jobber’. And presented as such: price, packaging, NAS, and all other attributes with that. But no bad whisky. It works for what it is meant to do.
    • Nose

      Oily. Fusile. Wood sweetness. Hint of vanilla. Seems complex, but isn’t.
      With water there is barley sugar, some vanilla, a bit of honey, slightly metallic and a little soft spices.
    • Taste

      Short, sweet arrival. Medium long development of sweet and sour and bitter underripe citrus fruits
      With water the arrival is light. The development is short with sweet and bitter (no sourness) citrus.

      Without water the finish is bitter, dry and alcoholic.
      With water the finish improves and is of a citrussy dry-ness. No bitter or alcoholic hints.

  3. domani scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    He is better than his predecessor in the blue tin can, which was available in many supermarkets. The sweetness is very pleasant and clearly to emphasize. Even the typical Grain Fehlnote for Loch Lomond is not superimposed and is within tolerable limits. On the whole, a positive development - 10.11.2017
    • Nose
      First thought goes to muesli, oatmeal, even a corny bar comes to my mind, malt, cereal, pumpernickel, sour-pungent fruit note, apple, burnt rubber, old rubber, window seal, damp cardboard, avocado, apricot, nutty sweet, almonds
    • Taste
      Malty, cereals, slightly spicy notes of alcohol, light fruits, creamy, nougat, chocolate, latte, fruit candy, honey at the end
    • Finish
      Short

  7. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Not outstanding, as you would expect with a NAS, but (fortunately) miles away from the favorite drop of Captain's Haddock (from Tim & Struppi), the Blue Label. A pleasing little All Day Dram.
    • Nose
      Malt, green & yellow immature fruits, a touch of wet cardboard & cellar-stored paper. A little bit dusty. Grapes. Water reveals red berries with sweet wine cream, hints of nuts, a dry scent of grain and a whit herbal.
    • Taste
      At the beginning, clear and clean. Pretty smooth. With malt, oak, sweet berry fruits, small dusty notes and a slightly oaky dryness. Significant juiciness makes it possible to draw conclusions about a low age. Malt & caramel face soft cereal & moist sponge cake.
    • Finish
      The finish seems to be sweet and sweeter. In it, notes of fruity acidity and a dull luster of oak mix. Will be dusty in the end. If you add water to the whisky, the finish will be dry (oak) but entices with caramel syrup and a creamy creaminess. Toward the end, you have enjoyed several sips, shows a small tail of wet white pepper.

  9. drkrylov scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Very sweet. Definitely a dessert whisky.
    • Nose
      Freshly-made toast. Brandy snap.
    • Taste
      Candyfloss (cotton-candy). Powdered sugar. Turkish delight. Pistachio nuts. Banana.
    • Finish
      Light but long. Lemony balancing dryness.
