Royal Lochnagar 12 Bottling Note

This 12 year old was distillery at the Lochnagar distillery, once visited by Queen Victoria when she was staying at nearby Balmoral.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Creamy, aromatic nose with hints of hay, malted barley, oak and mixed peels.

Palate: Soft smoke and gingerbread, oodles of toasty spices, Demerara sugar and boiled sweets.

Finish: The finish is all about grass and honey.

Overall: A sweet, summery dram…

Royal Lochnagar 12 Year Old Reviews

Wish we could get it down in London

Best whiskey I have tasted 10 out of 10

31st December 2020

A favourite.

Very easy on the palate. Does not ask many questions of the drinker. Some might find it bland. I don’t. My absolute favourite go-to single malt.

29th December 2020

Quaffable, pleasant and delivers as much as you might expect.

Nose: Mild burn, maybe butterscotch.

Palate: Crumbly mouthfeel, airy cup cakes, lightest fruits.

After: Spice and soft canned sweets close this out. Nice.

Not easy to find but worth it

I've seriously been looking for this whisky for about 5 years here in northern California and only since the Game of Thrones release of it (same whisky different labeling) have I finally got my hands on some. On the nose reminds me a lot of JW gold ( I wonder why ;)) hint of peat smoke with hay, grass, honey,vanilla and subtle baking spices. Palate is about the same but I love the mouthfeel (slightly creamy) with the feint smokiness weaving it's way through to a dry, grassy finish. I wish the proof was higher but even at 80 proof an impressive array of flavors and a substantially long finish are here indeed. Definitely worth the wait this is an excellent example of highland whisky. Cheers! The Sugarbear ( also check out Whisk(e)y Dixon Reviews on Youtube if you want to see me in action)

definetly moorish

had my first taste of this fine malt at Windsor bowling green, lovely smooth taste couldn't resist buying a couple of bottles.

Drinkable present.

Got a bottle as a Christmas present, it's ok, for the price point. I wouldnt buy another, and it wont be hammered through in short order like others might but it will be happily consumed.

Can get better / more distinctive malts at this price in my humble opinion but to each their own!

Never understand people who compare malts to blended whiskies. Blends, and in particular the likes of "find a hill, put one foot in front of the other" (not to advertise), are designed to be very drinkable, mass produced, and sold to the masses that usually dont know any better. There isn't anything wrong with "blends" as a whole, just the bad ones! Malts are more expressionate of the distillery, the area they come from, their recipe and the distiller, this has done an ok job of that. Nothing fancy. Drinkable. Some people will like it, probably most wont. But you get bad malts too (again, just an opinion!)

A fine quality dram at this price point.

Can't understand the 2 reviews below; it's an excellent dram at this price point.

Not great.

Tasted better blended whiskies. I love malts but this one does nothing for me.

1st April 2018

Not up to par period!

I tried bottle #2 in 1998. Wasn't the least bit impressed! Fell way short of my expectations. That's why I won't be buying this anymore. Sorry for the disappointment.

Decent, but can be better without additive

Still very decent for it's price, this whisky suffers from a noticeable concentration of (color) additive in it's taste. If only Lochnagar would omit it ...
