In the Scottish Highlans, near Loch Lomond lies, founded in 1814, distillery of the same name. It belongs to the Loch Lomond Group, owner also of the Glen Scotia in Campbeltown. In a sense, the distillery is unique, as it in the same place produces a single malt whisky, grain whisky and blends.
Today I have tasted Loch Lomond Single Malt NAS (no age statement), 40% ABV.

N: quite vegetable, like pickled vegetables, pickled ginger (such as for sushi – gari) for a while literally a touch of honey and other sweeter accents, there is also a tiny bit of smoke,

T: hmm…, raw taste, burning parts of alcohol, there are also sweeter notes, but quite in the distance,

F: short with the memory of the crude alcohol.

Score: 68.

Supposedly Loch Lomond produces very good grain whisky… I haven’t tried other editions of their single malts, but this one hasn’t pleased my taste. Smell provides interesting experiences I think about all these pickles, but the flavor is too raw and immature. Loch Lomond Single Malt Scotch Whisky NAS is hardly suitable for neat savoring, it would rathet suit better for cocktails.

Producer wrote on the label: „distilled and aged to perfection in old oak casks”, and maybe in those “old casks” is a mystery of immature taste. I don’t know whether the distillery really wanted to brag about it, or maybe it is a warning?

      It’s a pity that peated version is worst. I haven’t tasted it.
