Loch Lomond is a factory. Their core business is the production and sales of fillings, bulk whisky at very young age. They do not make a secret out of it. Their whisky is hence not very well regarded, except maybe by Capitain Haddock, the faithful sidekick of Tintin. Today we try the NAS-version from 2010, probably a very young whisky as well.
The nose is very light and grainy. I am reminded first and foremost of a slice of white bread, with (do not laught) peanut butter spread on it. Then some cardboard and warm milk. Lucikily there are some hints of apples and sugared breakfast cereals to make up for things. A little bit of honey. But oh, so light!
On the palate as well, it is very light. Make that watery. Absolutely not good. Mild spices follow a bland palate of cardboards and sugared iced tea. Soft hints of vanilla cannot repeal the mediocrity.
The finish is mercifully short, on more cardboard.
Pouring this in a whisky-cola would be a waste. Of the cola, mind you. One of the least interesting single malts ever tasted.
