Dec 9 – Single Cask Nation – Loch Lomond 10 year old

(distilled in 2006)

Nose : elegant with some floral, earthy, mineral notes. Although a bit spirity. I pick up some underlying hints of walnuts, eucalyptus & heather.

Palate : A peaty Loch Lomond expression with masses of earthy aromas flowing onto the palate but still showing a smooth appeal with sweet spices, brown sugar & cookie dough.

Finish : medium to short

Food Pairing : salted dark chocolate truffles

There are 25 miniatures for Anne-Sophie to taste - each one from independent bottlers and many at cask strength – with an extra special whisky for Christmas Day.
