Loch Lomond Peated Single Grain Description
This single grain Scotch whisky from Loch Lomond distillery in Alexandria is produced exclusively with malted barley, but using a Coffey still rather than the traditional pot still, meaning it cannot be designated a 'Single Malt Scotch Whisky', but rather a 'Single Grain Scotch Whisky'. The barley is measured at 50ppm but with the continuous distillation method, the smoke is not massively at the forefront and compliments the flavours nicely.
Nose: Sweet vanilla and tart blackcurrants and a hint of clove.
Palate: Mellow peat, green apple, lime and aniseed.
Finish: Crisp, dry finish with faint smoke.
