Loch Lomond Original Single Malt
This is a whiskey I picked up recently as I had not tried it before, I think it was on special at around 24.50GBP, usually around 27GBP. It has hints of peat and smoke but extremely easy to drink, no strong after taste. I did not find it improved with a dash of water. If I wanted a cheapish single malt for a quaffing whiskey, I would buy again.
Here is what Loch Lomond say about it:
LOCH LOMOND ORIGINAL SINGLE MALT WHISKY IS CAREFULLY MATURED, BEFORE BEING MARRIED IN THE FINEST OAK CASKS FOR THE PERFECT HARMONY OF FLAVOUR AND AROMA. THE RESULT IS AN ELEGANT AND FULL-BODIED WHISKY WITH A SMOOTHNESS MAKING THIS EXCEPTIONALLY EASY TO DRINK. A SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY WITH A DISTINCTIVE BACKGROUND CHARACTER WITH A HINT OF SMOKE AND PEAT.
