- Nose: very fine smoke, light fruits, currant, raspberry, later some chocolate
Taste: present, yet fine smoke, nuts
disposal; spicy, smoke fades, quite short Conclusion: not complex, but pleasing and in the price range one of the better 76/100
- 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.
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.
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.
- 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
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
Malty, cereals, slightly spicy notes of alcohol, light fruits, creamy, nougat, chocolate, latte, fruit candy, honey at the end
