1995 Loch Lomond ("All Malt") 22 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $90)

SKU #1387613

We have two amazing rarities from the reclusive Loch Lomond distillery this year. A unique facility, Loch Lomond makes every type of whisky they need for their blends in house. This means they operate a huge number of stills including multiple column stills and multiple pot stills. They make whisky in damn near every combination from heavily peated single malts to peat free malt and multiple varieties of grain whisky. This 22 year old is technically a single grain, but as grain whisky can be made from any grain, this so happens to be made from malted barley. Think of this as a much, much older version of Nikka Coffey Malt. As fans of our extensive grain program know when grain whisky passess the two decade mark, it's a whole new ballgame. The richness of time shows itself in what is otherwise a traditional blended whisky filler. Add to that the inherent complexity of malt as the grain for this cask and you've got fireworks. At first subtle, but building steadily into a crescendo of fruit, fudge, and spice, this is a sexy little number to add to your drinking portfolio.

Here is a weird one! I've never had a grain anything like this little puppy. The distillery, which has since changed hands, used to get in lots of trouble trying to sell this stuff as "pure malt" before the SWA banned the terminology. Now we're the beneficiaries of those oddball experiments. The nose is filled with vibrant orchard fruit, much more expressive than most grain whiskies at this age. Subtle hints of green tea, toasted sour dough, vanilla wafers. The palate has tons of green apple, white pepper, sugar candies and fresh herbs. A playful example of the interesting things that happen when you distil 100% malt mash on a column still!

This is a light and pretty single malt. In the nose there are subtle notes of floral and honey that work well in harmony. This continues in the mouth producing a very enjoyable whiskey. Although not exactly as light as some of the Japanese whiskeys, the Loch Lomond is on the light side and would be a perfect alternative to a Japanese whiskey for some one who wants an older whiskey. ( Most Japanese whiskeys in stock as I write this have no age statement).

This has got to be one of the most supple, easy to drink, and dare I say it, single *malt* like single grain scotch whiskies I have ever tasted. I admit that single grain whiskies - with their individualistic, spicy, armagnac meets rye like qualities - are not often my favorites. That said, I love this Loch Lomond for its creaminess and light, drinkable, yet far from simple, qualities. It delivers the goods, and over delivers on price. Highly recommended.

At 22 glorious years, this grain whisky weighs in at a friendly 54.1% ABV. It's mellowed considerably from its high proof fill over those 22 years. All the while it's picked up a great richness and complexity that makes grain whisky so appealing. Opening with a bit of fudge and toffee it moves into the lighter realm of stone fruit and sweet spic as it opens in the glass. Chocolate and mocha come back around on the palate as the malt makes itself clearly known. A little nougat and creme brulee work their way into the finish and the whole thing starts all over again. This is textbook old grain with a bit of a single malt twist. A very unusual and enjoyable whisky.

An interesting concept here since this is technically a Single Grain whisky, but it's made from malt - just not distilled in a pot still. This is is a mystery deserving of exploration and tasting... Elegant and light on the nose. There are a lot of soft fruits and orchard characteristics here with white peach, nectarine, and red apple. These fruity notes give way to a subtle medicinality and gentle caramel. In time, more fruitiness returns, but it’s a bit darker in character and more reminiscent of dried or candied fruits. There are also some qualities of dark chocolate and brandy-like scents. The chocolate comes through stronger on the palate combining nicely with toasty wood spice flavors. More sipping reveals leather, notes of hay, and a friendly herbal quality. The chocolate and herbs mingle and then return to the medicinal notes from before.
