Loch Lomond Original Review

2nd March 2017

Review of the Loch Lomond Original single malt whisky.

Loch Lomond Original ReviewMatured in American oak casks, the Loch Lomond Original is the entry level whisky in the Loch Lomond single malt range. It has no age statement and  is bottled at 40% ABV.

The Loch Lomond Original is currently available from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt for around 26 and will soon be rolled out in travel retail.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose:  Leather, a little floral, a little honey sweetness, touch of oak.

Taste: Very mild oak spice, orange and lemon, a little sweet vanilla, malted cereal, a little nuttiness and just the very faintest hint of smoke in the background.

Finish: Short, a little barley sweetness and citrus fruit which fades quickly leaving a little nuttiness a touch of dry oak.

Comment: This is certainly a young single malt but not as young as what I recall the old Loch Lomond no age statement single malt being which was presented in a blue tube and I found feinty. This does have its rough edges, which probably adds to the pleasure, it is more refined than the NAS of old, still easy enough to drink and certainly a step up from a standard blend, let down a little by the short finish. Certainly worth a go at its price point.

SMW Score 79/100

The Loch Lomond Original will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
