Taste note

  • Colour:

    Gold

  • Nose:

    Freshly cut yellow apples and peaches, with pleasant malty notes. It quickly becomes nuttier, with hints of muesli and hazelnuts. The expected vanilla biscuits as well, but not overdone. In the background there’s a light earthy / floral touch.

  • Palate:

    At the palate the youth comes out more. There’s a peppery bite with some spicy bourbon wood, as well as generous grainy notes. A pickled note. White pepper. Mid-palate you get more caramel sweetness, orange and a hint of toffee. After that it gets drier, with nutmeg and salty notes.

  • Finish:

    Short finish with spicy and malty notes and hints of fruits.

  • Conclusion:

    A fine introduction to Lochlea. It has an attractive nose and a nice texture on the palate. I’m guessing the PX casks are helping to hide a light, young and slightly generic spirit, which still shows a rather harsh edge.
