https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2018/03/22/malt-n-copper-loch-lomond/

Loch Lomond had the first charring machine in the UK, back in 1994. Charring at LL starts at 300°c, increasing to 500°c for a medium char. A 6-7 minute char at 700°c reaches [Ardbeg] Aligator levels where the inside of the cask is effectively destroyed. 

Inchmoan mean island of the peat. This smoker is made up of straight-necked & pot still distillate [a 66/33 ratio], with a peat level of 50ppm. LL make a medicinal peat and a spicy peat spirit, maturing them separately for around 12 years in re-charred US casks before marrying. This process creates a uniquely different peat style.

  • N: Peppery & salty start with peppered ham, plimsolls, lamb and muddy white pepper. Reminds me of SMWS’s recent Laphroaig releases.
  • T: More of that SMWS Laphroaig style [though lighter], with flavours of turkey, flakey pastry, white pepper and spice.
  • F: Muddy ash and vanilla.
  • C: Abound with family character.

Scores a B-

Color
Burnished
Nose

Dust. Wet leaf piles. Chalk. Moulding clay. Citrus zest. Wet cardboard. Newspaper. Extinguished bonfire. Hints of pears and lychees. Light spiced wine.

Taste

More dank notes, wet leaves, clay, cardboard, like in the nose, but with an additional mineral peat note. Slight lactic creaminess here, but not nearly as pronounced as the Inchmurrin 12. Bitter citrus, pomelo rind. Some cinnamon and nutmeg. A peppery flair on the swallow.

Finish

Medium-long. Pepper continues throughout the finish and goes on even when everything else has faded. Mineral peat. Wet stone. Something that reminds me a lot of salty pretzels in dark chocolate.

Tasted at WTF2017 - August 2017

Older Loch Lomond whisky wasn't really one of my favourites, but I heard good stories about it lately, including the hype around the "law and order Whiskynerds bottlings" So i gave this one, together with the standard Inchmurrin 12, the Madeira finish and the Loch Lomond Single Grain a try. I must say, am impressed, quality drams.

For this one: I really like this one, it has the same body and style as the Inchmurrin 12, but now with peat. Not that Islay peat, but clean peat as you can have in Ardmore. The peat is nicely in balance with the body :)
