For many Loch Lomond lovers, 12 years is where this distillery hits its sweet spot. High praise from Jim Murray and a Platinum Medal at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition further affirm its status as one of the bargain buys in the Single Malt category. Brimming with peach, pear and vanilla sweetness and just a hint of peat, the majority consensus on the blogosphere also suggests this is great entry level malt. Aged in three cask types (Bourbon, refill and recharred) it also comes with a proper ABV and zero chill filtration. What more could you ask for? Grab it while you can at this very special price.

Other reviews... Great to see they now have stocks to allow this malt to really flex its muscles.
93.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2020

...Like its elder sibling, Loch Lomond 12 year old is presented in non-chill filtered form, and in this case, matured in a mix of bourbon, refill, and recharred casks. Ripe apricots, vanilla, and a suggestion of peat smoke on the nose. The full palate offers oranges and pears, plus developing spicy malt and mild peatiness. Long in the finish, with spicy fruit notes. Drying, with subtle tannins. 89 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Gavin Smith (Spring 2017)
