Campbeltown Loch

There is in fact a real Campbeltown Loch – Loch Chille Chiarain, its gaelic name, ‘is a small sea loch near the south of the Kintyre Peninsula facing eastwards towards the Firth of Clyde‘ (Wikipedia)

But to me, I only pulled this off the shelf because the word Loch really reminded me of the amount of work I have had to deal with this week.

How about this Campbeltown Loch then:

Blended scotch whisky with Springbank and Longrow, approximately 5 years old.

Nose  Nose: Young! Malt, unripe peaches, that distinctive young grain smell. Ok some flints, some salt, whiff of smoke. Longrow? No detectable peat here. White petals on bath salts.

Taste  Palette:  Young again, with malt, quite grainy too, light dry spices and white pepper. Sweetish but really neither sweet nor dry. That unripe fruit note again. Turning salty now and aha bit more smoke and peat towards the finish.

Finish  Finish:  Short. Burnt out embers.

Yeah well. 5 years old. To its credit, it does not seem to have as much grain as some young blends. We’ve all had plonk that really stank of 3 year old grain whisky mmm?

Its overall profle is somewhat austere, touch of longrow in there. Not too bad, not too bad.
