This is a Flash Blog which is good fun because it gives both whoever is reading this and myself a chance to see at the same what everyone thinks of this.
Thanks very much to Steve at http://www.thewhiskywire.com
for sorting me out with the samples.
I’ll be adding some twitter handles at the bottom of the blog so you can check out other’s opinion at after you’ve read mine and feel free to comment either by email or on Facebook, I’ll also be re tweeting and liking and sharing a few other blogs.
So this is the Loch Lomond Single Grain, no age statement and bottled at 46% I have reviewed several grain whiskies recently and really feel like they will command a far bigger share in the market as the prices of Single Malts continues to rise.
It has been produced using Malted Barely only rather than corn and using their Coffey Still on site so I’m expecting something a little different.
Nose. it’s a gentle bourbon feel, creamy sweet porridge, stewed fruit and a touch of citrus, lemon oil, slight whiff of a mild glue, if left in the glass for a while a mild vanilla scent fills the glass, very decent.
Palate. Slight burn at first and you can really taste those American Oak Barrels, I added a drop of water to mine and the lemon tart and vanilla really comes out, and yeah Pineapple juice which is right off the marketing sheet but it’s there by the bucketful. Vanilla scented icing sugar and lemon sherbets.
Finish. Warm and pleasing, lots of warmed orange juice with a touch of lemon and icing sugar.
Please have a look at the following Twitter handles to read their blogs and follow them in general.
