Loch Lomond 12 Year Old Review

2nd March 2017

Review of the Loch Lomond 12 year old single malt whisky.

Loch Lomond 12 Year Old ReviewThe Loch Lomond 12 year old contains whisky produced in two types of still, Loch Lomond's traditional copper pot stills and their unique "Lomond" style copper pot stills equipped with rectifying heads which can be used to vary the length of the still neck. It was matured in a combination of three types of cask, Bourbon, Refill and Recharged casks and then brought together under the watchful eye of master distiller Michael Henry.

The Loch Lomond 12 year old is bottled at 46% ABV, it is currently available from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt for around 38 and a 1 litre bottle has recently been launched in travel retail at Glasgow airport and will soon be available at other airports.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose:  Sweet malt and candied pear, a little lemon and some spice in the background.

Taste: Deliciously sweet, fresh and rich mouth coating fruit, candied pear and lemon, a touch of vanilla and a mild touch of ginger.

Finish: A lovely longish finish. Crisp sugar and fruit fade to leave some oaky digestive biscuit and that little touch of ginger.

Comment: A deliciously sweet fruity malt with just a touch of gentle spice, loved it. It is a around 38 for the 70cl bottle and 45 for the 1 litre travel retail bottle, well worth the price tag. Great to see Loch Lomond turning out such quality whisky and at a very drinkable price. A thoroughly enjoyable malt whisky, don't overlook it.

SMW Score 91/100

The Loch Lomond 12 Year Old will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
