    This came in a 3x 50ml taster set. It was on special so it was a good opportunity to see what’s going on with this very modestly priced new range from Loch Lomond. Well... this one falls into the NAS budget malts. You pay for what you get although for the money I would prefer a malt blend like monkey shoulders. Nose: Very light on aroma but the smells that flit into focus are mostly pleasant. Vanilla Blend of fruit juices Very faint second hand cigarette smoke Arrival: Dilute, nothing shows until development Watery There isn’t even a youthful kick There is the odd claim “smoothed to perfection” on the label. It’s not telling lies you could down this bottle without a splutter. Development: Soft here too, A little toffee A little... little! Peaty hint Finish: Barley husk dry Menthol herbal I’m glad I tasted this in a sample bottle. Perhaps a bad move from the marketing placing it in with the 12 and 18.

    Decent lightly smoked islay style scotch. Pleasantly surprised for a sub $26 single malts Scotch.

    A tender golden olive colour. A striking chemical aroma of insecticides with bright tones of stinky hard swiss cheese. Also something wet like a dump fabric plus some coconut (lol) and a little of peat. Well, it does not differ much from Loch Lomond Reserve blend as concerns its fundamnetal structure. But as far as it is single malt the typical grain/spiritous notes are absent here. The taste contains a subtle smokiness and peat, some citruses (oranges mainly or even orange juice) and apples + some spices. It's sweet and bitter in equal measure what makes the taste remarkable but not very pleasant. Aftertaste is bitter with some medicinal notes, but again sweet on the edges of the tongue. Looking at the Loch Lomond distillery it makes me wonder whether these guys are either underrated or overrated as, on the one hand, guys do an amazing job in reestablishing the brand and offer a highly diverse range of whiskies, however and, broadly speaking, therefore we get a problem of a materialistic kind - are they able to evolve through the experiments and create something truly epic despite the fact that the production capacities are very high what makes it possible to stop right there and right now and not evolve at all.

    strange sweetness, didn't find any smoke... Pass on this one. Maybe their age statement bottlings are better?
