Whisky Lovers Rejoice! A multi-award winning (and rated 93 by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible), Highlands, Single Grain Scotch Whisky for a price that is going to make you share a dram with all of your friends. Welcome to the Australian premier of the Loch Lomond Single Grain Scotch Whisky!
Ok, let’s get it straight out of the way, on the table and up front and centre right off the bat – this month we’re not featuring a Single Malt Whisky (gasp, shock, horror)…but this is a 100% malted barley, single grain
whisky from Loch Lomond…made from exactly the same ingredients as their single malt whisky, fermented in exactly the same way as their single malt whisky and aged exactly the same way as their single malt whisky and matured in the finest American oak casks.
So what’s the difference? Well, in this case – the only difference is the type of still used to distil the whisky (hold on we explain below).
We’ve chosen this as it’s a truly fantastic whisky and has been recognised as such multiple times. Released in 2016, it won Gold at the World Whisky Awards in 2017
for ‘Best Scotch Grain’ as well as Gold in Berlin Spirits Awards
of the same year. More recently, it’s just picked up a Double-Gold medal at the San Francisco Spirits Awards
earlier this year and it’s rated at a sterling 93 in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
OUR TASTING NOTES
Rather pale straw
Sweet Pineapple juice, citrus zest and
Warm spice, lots more of those pineapple notes, some ginger, malt biscuits and vanilla.
A sweet, light and fruity finish with some spice to keep the palate warm.
This is a light, smooth and fruity – easy sipper that ‘s both an easy entry for newbies… and offers enough complexity to satisfy the most experienced whisky waffler!
