- Brand: Lohin McKinnon
- ABV: 43%
- Batch: Lot 0002
Description: craft-distilled malt whisky from the Central City brewing company in British Columbia.
Nose: soft and floral, with fruit and nut accents. Exceedingly gentle, slightly sweet.
Taste: light-bodied yet creamy, with a strange, milky flavour. Then the floral and nutty notes come through, along with a bit of oak. Ultra-smooth, especially for a young whisky. Some raisin and plum brandy notes appear near the end.
Finish: young, green malt all the way. More of that plum brandy.
Balance: drinkable and inoffensive to a fault. Tasted blind, I would probably peg this as an Auchentoshan. The floral/nutty profile is not my favourite, but here it is gentle enough not to detract from the experience. Longer aging should benefit this whisky tremendously. Worth checking out if you can find it on sale.
