A blended whisky from J and A Mitchell, Campbeltown Loch is a 5 year old blend with Longrow and Springbank whisky in the mix
No way this is from J and A Mitchell
Im a huge fan of Springbank, it goes back to a visit to Scotland where the best bar tender i ever met took me through the regions of Scotland and I settled squarely on Campbeltown as my number 1 destination, still a huge fan to this day, i was intrigued to find they also do a blend so got some in... what a mistake. the awkward blend is summed up by burnt rubber/rubber gloves dominance. It is pungent on the nose and to the palate the immediate flavour is burnt rubber, fortunately this diminishes to a smokey/salty finish but the rubber overtones totally ruin this, its awful and it hurts me to say that I so want to like it. awful

Tasted like Campbeltown Harbour after the fishing fleet left . Rather firewaterish , had to take it with equal quantity water , then it was more palatable . Perhaps this is one of those whiskies that varies from cask batch to cask batch . Wouldn't buy it again unless at a give away price . Big Andy.

On top of the background Campbeltown taste there is a lot of smoke and a fair bit of peat. A big taste but not unpleasantly so. Excellent value.
