Named after one of the previous owners of the Old Kilbeggan Distillery (halfway between Dublin and Galway) this is a single malt and bottled at 40%. Light gold in colour with Citrus fruits, vanilla and honey on the nose, probably best summed up as biscuity. Tasting offered a very distinct almond taste with some sweetness reminiscent of a macaroon biscuit, some maltiness there as well and very smooth on the palate. A medium finish - quite sweet with some saltiness right at the end. Interestingly Locke’s is a combination of peated and unpeated whiskies, but I couldn't really identify any peatiness.

OK but wont set the world on fire.
