Lochlea Our Barley

Lochlea Our Barley Bottling Note

A big, exciting step for the young Lowlands-based Lochlea distillery. Our Barley is the first single malt to join the distillery's core range! Following the popularity of its Single Malt First Release, the Lochlea team set about creating this expression for all to enjoy. Matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry casks, as well as shaved, toasted and re-charred barriques, the whisky was bottled up without any added colour, or chill filtration. Judging by this, there's a promising future for Lochlea!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Sweet, juicy fruit salad, a drizzle of honey, and sugared orange peel with soft notes of grassy malt beneath.

Palate Buttered soda bread, crushed almonds, tinned peaches with chantilly cream. Prickles of peppery barley gently build.

Finish A touch of maple syrup and nutty, toasted oak. Creamy layers of vanilla soften the spice.

Reviews for Lochlea Our Barley
Promising Dram
Nice dram… sweet, smooth, fruity and some white pepper before a medium short creamy finish

Have a dram then leave 6 months
Was critical of this when i got it july i could say was "inoffensive"
Has taken 6 months for the flavours to develop and now "pleasant". Not sufficiently viscous for the flavours to linger. Probably a good choice for people new to malts; not too complex.
Not in the same class as Raasay though when considering new distilleries.

A fine young dram
This is a very light and fruity release yet the spirit still shines through- it’s hard to believe it’s so young! Overall very promising

Escaped the barrel to early
Sorry guys at Lochlea, this should still be in the barrel. Not much on the nose and the palate is bombarded by so much young spirit that you can't detect any flavour
