Loch Lomond Single Grain
Loch Lomond // Highlands, Scotland
Loch Lomond Distilling Company is known for producing a variety of styles both blended and single malt. This single grain expression is one of the first from its fall 2016 US portfolio launch. Distilled in a Coffey still, this one is made exclusively from malted barley and aged in ex-bourbon casks. So it's like a single malt, but different.
Single GrainDistilled from a grain or mixture of grains, usually corn, wheat, or barley from one distillery, if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in barrels.
"This would be the perfect whisky to reach for on March 14 because it smells and tastes of pie! Expect flavors and aromas of ripe golden apples, peaches, pears, coconut cream and banana. This pastry also has a generous portion of vanilla and dark chocolate, with a faint puff of smoke. Though the flavors are sweet and somewhat intense, it remains light in weight and color, making it ideal for warm weather with a rock or sipping or as an aperitif style. "
