Loch Lomond, Original (2015), 40 %

Review #304
The smell is light peated, light spiced with hints of vanilla and citrus. Overall it seems a bit simple and young. A lot of malt is coming through after the first wave of light peat.

Again some light peat in the taste, but yet again my first initial thought was: very young. And watered down to 40 % not much is going on… Considering all the above mentioned things, the finish actually stays for quite a while! The peat is doing the work here.

For starters, they should have bottled it at (at least) 46 %. But from my point of view, the only thing to do, to make this whisky work, is age. Not much power in this, and not much to say… I will give this 76/100 (19/18/20/19).
