Loch Lomond 12 Year Old Reviews

Not a beginners dram but absolutely one for the more developed pallet!

This is my current favourite evening dram. I have tried many whiskies and have over &0 different bottles in my collection, but I adore this. It’s complex, but smooth and deeply satisfying. As others have said, it does need to breathe and actually improves as you work your way down the bottle. It’s not a beginner’s Whisky, but very rewarding to spend time with. If you understand Whisky you will be very impressed with this. Great value as well!

Seriously?

Seriously, these reviews are so funny. One gentlemen says “give it time...I opened it and now that it has been sitting a month and I am half way done with the bottle, it tastes great.” A month? To drink a bottle of Scotch? Nope. Sorry. If I can’t drink the bottle over a week, it’s gone.

Bitter aftertaste that lingers

This is the first scotch I have not enjoyed in a while. There is a medicine
undertone with hints of sweet oak that quickly turn to bitter. Unfortunately, the bitter is the definitive layer that lingers. It actually made me gag a little. I could have bought a smooth Glenmoragie 10 for 10$ less.

Delicious

Poured over some ice, a delicious round warm whisky, I love it

Not great, not bad, odd profile, too sweet.

Paid 34.99 USD. Was a bit let down upon first taste and smell. After 12 minutes in air with a drop of water, it was better but not great. Overall it honestly tastes like someone mixed peach juice and Dewars together in a glass. Too sweet, thick and unrefined palate with a bit of uninteresting peat smoke on the back end. Syrupy and unclean finish on the palate. I grabbed this because it was cheap, but should have paid 5 dollars more for Glenlivet Founders Reserve or Old Pultney 12. Glad I tried it, but wont buy it again. The only cheap scotch I ever liked was Old Pultney 12. When will I learn to just stick with the established brands?

Very, very bad

The first time I have ever returned an (open) bottle to the store for an exchange. Absolute swill. An hour later I still have the taste of poisonous cough syrup in my mouth. Easily the worst single malt I have ever tried. It is nothing but bitter oak followed by a nasty metallic, chemical aftertaste which lingers long after its welcome. And I forked out $70AUD for this swill. I would not drink it if you paid me. Be warned...

Give it time!

This is a very good whisky. And it has very unique flavors. However, immediately after opening the bottle, I thought the nose was terrible. I thought something was wrong with it. Upon tasting it, I felt better. It had an interesting flavor (tropical fruits). I decided to give the bottle some time. Now I am about halfway through it (about a month later). The character has really improved. The nose is now interesting. The palate is even better. And the finish is nice and long with a peaty tang. Give this one some time.

Disappointment

Unfortunately I have to agree with the most negative reviews... Strong nose of unfiltered grain alcohol and medicine heart drops, very cringy. Taste is a bit better, some vanilla, oak, (bourbon cask??? in your dreams maybe), aftertaste of strong alcohol and oak... Reading all the good reviews makes me think I got some bad bottle???????

This scotch doesn’t deserve to be called whisky. It’s barely whiskey

I’d sooner have a case of the clap than a case of this scotch. The price piqued my interest but the whisky was nearly unpalatable. If you’re looking for a cheap buzz I recommend trying Stetson or Brute on the rocks before you offend all your senses with the poison of Loch Lomond.

Better as it waits

A bit sharp on the first taste. Smoother after the initial sip. Has a sweet finish, but not much peat or smoke. Quite drinkable.

Wish I could get it in Canada

Purchased a bottle while visiting Scotland from Canada. Unable to order anymore! I don’t particularly like whiskey but it’s the best one I have had so far. Hopefully I can find a website that ships to Canada!

I bought 4 bottles. It’s that good!

What a great find this whisky is! A delightful 12 year old that is fully complex and never disappoints. This one needs to breath in the glass for a few minutes to flourish and release the excessive alcohol and then may require a splash of water, depending on your taste preference. I don’t pick up on the light peat but there is a hint of smoke which mixes wonderful with an oily caramel and spice combination that works beautifully. It’s a fabulous whisky and great value. Don’t store it, drink it!

strong and weird taste

Too Strong

Superb

It's a great whisky in it's own right, but seeing as I picked up a bottle for £31 at my local bottle shop it became a superb whisky. Price shouldn't matter I know but I just wasn't expecting it to be this nice.

I get a peppery taste to begin with finished of by a hint of sweet meringue type flavour. Really recommend it, a lovely surprise.

Yeah, that's the 2nd time I used that summary line... Sure... but it's wholly accurate and a good line.

Loch Lomond has become a bit of a favourite. Not so impressed with the Glengarry but the Inchmoan is good, the Inchmurrins are pretty great and the Loch Lomonds have been superb, in my experience.

Above average 12 year, I rec.

Give it some air

The more I drink it, the more I love it. It surely benefits from some air in the bottle. Although I barely get notes of smoke, I get some charred wood and lots of fruit. The Bourbon casks add vanilla and the finish is decent and fresh (berries). very good everyday dram which never disappoints!

11th April 2018

Amazing finish

Really confused by the mixed reviews on this whisky. If it's within your preferred taste spectrum of a sweet, fruity whisky with hints of peat and smoke then you will simply love this.

Good solid cupboard staple

Very woody on the nose at first then a hint of stewed fruit. Opens up to a very creamy scent like brandy cream and adding a drop of water brings out a very light smokey scent. Taste is woody and spices. A drop of water mellows the wood and brings out the spice a little more. Finish is not good. Lots of alcohol burn on the tongue overpowering any flavours.

A real fizz bang!

I first tasted this in October 2017 when staying near Loch lomond having dinner in the Ardlui Hotel. I noticed the several distillery bottles behind the bar so asked to try one, this one being of the cheaper options (I was in Scotland after all!) and was really surprised by it. We'd already spent the day visiting the Auchentoshan distillery, and my wife wouldn't have appreciated another day trip to whiskyworld.
So, I've just received it today and it's as I recall. Sharp, spicy, lots of dazzle and some fruits whizzing around in the opposite corner. It's not a honey trip like cardhu or Dalwhinnie, but it's extremely appealing. I'm wondering if their use of wine yeast is adding this juxtaposition of flavours, either way it works really well. It's on my list of cupboard essential lists.

The scotch is in my top 10 closer to 3.

This is a five-star Scotch all the way. I received a bottle as a gift and was I surprised by how smooth and wonderful the taste of this Scotch really is. To the fellow that gave it a one-star rating I would only have to say then he probably had a cold that day. Totally enjoyable. Thank you

Good single malt

Like the subtle smoke and pleasant finish. Would buy it again.

12th October 2017

Nice dram for the price

Nice smooth dram. I agree with the tasting notes, however, I was picking up a faint hint of banana at the finish.

29th September 2017

Great whisky

Great tasting Whisky. I can't understand how someone could give it a poor rating. It is five stars from me.

17th September 2017

Great Scotch!

Smooth, easy drinking. A value buy.

Slàinte

I don't know what old mate was talking about who gave this wonderful dram a 1 star! This was delicious whisky! I highly recommend you try it for yourself and let your tastebuds decide!

11th September 2017

Not a good one

Very disappointed. Grain! Nose was interesting initially but it's a bit rough.. cough drops. Medicine. Short finish. Even water doesn't save this. Cask is adding nout, I'd bet it's been used a few too many times and in block storage without care. Even at 46% this has very little flavour. Oh dear, not a good one.
