Loch Lomond 12 year old Inchmoan
The Inchmoan is a peated single malt, meaning that the barley used to make the whisky has been dried over peat smoke. This gives the whisky a distinct smoky and earthy flavor profile, with notes of peat, charred oak, and brine.
The Loch Lomond 12 Year Old Inchmoan is aged in a combination of American oak and recharred barrels, which adds layers of complexity and depth to the flavor profile. On the nose, the whisky has a strong aroma of smoke and peat, with hints of vanilla and caramel.
On the palate, the Loch Lomond 12 Year Old Inchmoan is rich and full-bodied, with flavors of smoke, peat, and roasted nuts. There are also notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and spice, which add to the complexity of the whisky. The finish is long and warming, with a lingering smokiness that stays on the palate.
Loch Lomond Distillery
Loch Lomond distillery is located in Alexandria, Scotland very close to the famous loch of the same name. It was built in 1964 on the site of Britain's oldest car factory. This distillery has a distinctive and unique set up, it uses stills with rectifiers and continuous stills. This allows Loch Lomond distillery to release several different whiskies.
The distillery operated from the early 1960's until the early 1980's when it closed down due to an economic crisis. In 1985 Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse Ltd. acquired the distillery and re-started production two years later. The distillery produced only malt whisky until 1993 when Coffee stills were installed. Ever since, grain and malt whisky have been produced side by side there.
In 1994 the parent group acquired the Glen Scotia distillery in Campbeltown. The group's whiskies were released using various different styles of packaging until the distilleries, bottling plant and stocks were acquired by the current owners in 2014.
There is no single 'style' or 'character' that would define Loch Lomond distillery. Given its unusual set up, whiskies produced there might vary in flavour from light and delicate to rich and peated and from un-peated to the more heavily peated.
