Loch Lomond is probably Scotland's most versatile distillery in terms of the number of different styles of whisky produced for different purposes on one site. In addition to its two traditional pot stills and a Coffey still, the distillery is also equipped with four Lomond stills, these have a traditional pot still base, but with the addition of a rectifying column instead of the traditional swan necks. Varying the distillation techniques has enabled the distillery to produce no less than eight different single malts (plus numerous grain whiskies and blends) of different styles on one site.
Loch Lomond 12yo is a lightly peated whisky aged in three types of cask; ex-bourbon, refill and re-charred.
Nose: Creamy vanilla, with a touch of freshly baked apple turnover.
Palate: Brown sugar and five-spice. Orchard fruit notes continue, with a hint of yellow plum too.
Finish: Quite drying, though still sweet with vanilla.
