    Nasally, this malt is still relatively interesting, if a bit strange ;-)
    The taste of this malt reminds me of a German whisky thanks to the dominant wet grain note. I don't want to bad-mouth this bottling, but it didn't suit my taste ...

    Thanks for the experience, but the malt really wasn't as bad as you might think!
    • Nose
      Light amber shines in the glass, an indefinable fruit note arises from the Premium Snifter. Furniture polish? Fermented fruits? Sweet and oddly strange, but not bad in terms of basic character ... Cereal notes? Malt? Somehow it smells of cereal grains swollen in water ... A slight glue note is released, a hint of vanilla, hardly any fruit flavors ... Nasal I would almost guess a German whisky.
    • Taste
      The first sip flows mildly with a harsh grain note on the tongue. Tart fruit and wood aromas stick to the palate, the second sip appears pale and reserved. To be honest, I can't get anything from this malt, it lacks expression and character. Zest and orange and lemon peel, again cereals swollen in water come to my mind. There is minimal sharpness, with slightly tart wood tones it is then already in the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Slightly tart, malty, minimally dark fruit and light citrus zest. Of course, the grain notes so often mentioned come into play again ...

    A good whisky made by Loch Lomond. Not a whisky which will suit everyone. If you like their style (and I do) this is a good one to drink as a daily dram.
    • Nose
      88 88
      A very full flavoured nose. Quite some unique notes. This is Loch Lomond as it should be. Raw, earthy and not for beginners.
      Behind all this there are apples and pears. Some more exotic canned fruits can be found too. And a little touch of citrus. But after a while some more bourbon notes as caramel and vanilla come in.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Full bodied. Sweet and sour arrival. Hint of sugar, some spices, quite some fruitiness again. Orchard fruits. Ripe melon. Again with some time and air it gives more bourbon matured notes.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium-long length. A tad bitter though.
      Loads of bourbon vanilla and ice cream. A little fruitiness is in the background.

  4. ThinLizzy scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Very intrusive notes of solvent in the nose (it evaporates a little, but lasts far too long for my taste), which can also be felt in the mouth.

  6. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    An interesting malt that sure does have a certain uniqueness to it.
    • Nose
      A light maltiness with subtle orchard fruits. Think pear skins and ripe red apples, but also some white grapes. A touch of oak shavings, together with a whiff of cardboard and Demerara sugar, as well as some floral notes.
    • Taste
      Some butterscotch and honeyed apricots, but also notes of menthol and cloves, followed by grassy notes and a slight oakiness.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices and a whiff of menthol again. Medium in length.

      Sweet, some freshly mown grass
    • Taste
      83 83
      Very fruity, exotic fruits (banana?), citrus
    • Finish

      Long and warm with caramel and ginger

  8. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Compared to the 12er (WID: 107536) much oakier. The tropical fruits of the 12er are more discreet. Some floral notes. Cereal and oak notes (not unpleasant, but really nice).
    Somehow, that offers too little for me. Apart from the grain and oak notes, there will not be that much anymore. Since I liked the 12er better.

    A lovely dram!
    • Nose
      Rich, floral, passionfruit
    • Taste
      Sweetish, floral (geraniums), very tasty
    • Finish
      Mild with a lovely spicy note in the back
