Loch Lomond is a distillery that rests just at the edge of the Highlands region of Scotland, bordering the Lowlands. It's the only Scottish distillery to produce both grain and single malts in the same facility. This single malt whisky is a marriage of three cask treatments - ex-bourbon, refill and re-charge - with a total of 12 years of maturation.

"There's an intriguing balance of fruit and smoke in this whisky. It tastes almost as though a small fire on a pile of leaves was put out in a fruit orchard. This light bodied Scotch also has some strokes of vanilla, with a chalky mineral quality added to the mix, and just a dusting of spice."
