Loch Lomond’s reinvention as a distillery continues to bear interesting fruit, such as this 17 year old Organic Highland malt.
Whilst not the first distillery to produce an organic whisky (Springbank, Bruichladdich and Benromach have all done the same), these spirits are still few and far between.
The whisky has been aged in first fill former Bourbon barrels, which add thick, honeyed notes of sweet toffee, vanilla and buttery oak, whilst allowing the qualities of the rich, malty grain and fruity new make spirit to shine through.
Bottled at a generous 54.9% ABV, without chill filtration or colouration, this is a well crafted whisky with a commitment to quality throughout.
A delightful bottling from a much-maligned distillery.
