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.
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 here).
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.
