Bottled at 46%, the Loch Lomond 18 Year was matured in ex-Bourbon Barrels. 90pts Whisky Advocate.

Evan's Tasting Note

Nose: Oily and phenolic in style. Orange Marmalade spread on burnt toast, beer nuts, sesame brittle, maple and brown sugar roasted bacon, crème brûlée, banana split, red rose tea, polished leather and bee's wax.

Palate: Smokey and tangy with an underlying oiliness. Amaro-like it its bitter and sweet notes - this really coats the tongue nicely. Fuzzy peaches and sour orange sliced candy. candied ginger, chai tea latte with honey, apple cider, Christmas cake.

Finish: Rich, oily and tingly on the fade with a touch of salt and fruit. The Amaro-like bitter-sweetness sticks around.

 

Comment: Wow. I was not expecting this. For me, this is an incredible whisky. The combination of bitter, sweet and smoke is a wonder. If it wasn't for the juicy and sweet notes, the bitter oak notes would be way over top. If it wasn't for that would, this would be flabby fruit and not enough smoke. All the parts of this work together in a wonderful and unique way.

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: savoury and meaty; seared pork belly, apple sauce, lemon drops and wax paper; white chocolate Hershey's Kisses, chunk malty and Billy Bee honey (the one in the bear shaped bottle); subtle smoke.

Palate: soft and still savoury; more BBQ pork belly, white chocolate and waxy tones; a touch of young Calvados, building oak spices and earthy leather; hickory smoke. 

Finish: long, coating and meaty; the leathery notes, smoke and oak spices linger longest.

Comment: feel like I need a little more hoisin sauce for my BBQ pork buns.

Producer's Tasting Note

Nose: Green apple and grapefruit aromas fuse before the sweet character of honeysuckle and mature oak comes through.

Taste: Full bodied and rounded. Elegant wood notes of toasted oak and cigar box become green fruits with apple and gooseberry.

Finish: Long finish with dried tea and tobacco leaf in balance with soft medicinal peatiness and wood smoke.

90pts Whisky Advocate

"The 18 year old is Loch Lomond’s flagship single malt and marks the improvement in quality from this distillery during recent years. The nose offers peaches and vanilla, mild spice, pipe tobacco, and a hint of sweet wood smoke. Nicely textured, with bold, sweet, citrus fruit flavors, vanilla, almonds, and cocoa. Nutty, gently spicy, with cocoa and a hint of coffee in the lengthy, subtly peated finish."
