Day 7 of the Kensington Wine Market Whisky Advent Calendar is another Loch Lomond Distillery expression. This time, however, it is Inchmoan 12-year-old Peated. Loch Lomond creates this expression by blending a variety of their single malts made from either the traditional swan-neck pot still or their unique straight neck pot still. From this evolves a spirit with depth and a beautiful blend of smoke and spice.
Nose: Dark fruit, all spice, burnt wood, freshly trimmed mint leaves.
Palate: Torched toffee, cinnamon, cracked black pepper. Peat is fading fast…
Finish: Lingering delicate notes of dark fruit….no peat smoke.
This is a solid dram but must admit that I was spoiled by the Loch Lomond Inchmurrin 18 earlier in the calendar. I had higher hopes for this whisky especially considering I’m a bit of a peat head. I found it didn’t carry past the nose.
