Loch Lomond 18 year old has a strong oak character, with hints of summer grass, tropical fruit and zesty citrus notes. our master cooper back then was tommy wallace, who carefully selected the finest casks to mature the liquid for a minimum of 18 years allowing time and nature to bring out the sweet character of the wood. our 18 year old is non-chill filtered to keep things just as nature intended.
Our master distiller Bill White selects individual casks matured exclusively in traditional American oak whisky barrels before marrying them together for a further maturation in casks that have previously been used for making fortified madeira wine. the madeira cask finish enhances the orchard fruit character of peach and pear with marzipan and nutmeg and gives a dry nuttiness to the long, oak finish.

Loch Lomond Signature is a handsome blend from the prolific distillery, using whiskies which are married in their 100-cask Solera system, which features both Oloroso Sherry and recharred American oak casks. Good value for money, this one.
Please note: The bottle lids of this expression are a touch scratched, but the whisky within remains safe and sound.
A single grain from the very adaptable Loch Lomond distillery, known for producing a variety of different whiskies, from single malts to single grains to blends. A very light whisky here, perfect as an aperitif.
The whisky has been matured in American oak casks before undergoing secondary maturation in French oak Pinot Noir barrels from Kerr Cellars, Kerr’s Napa Valley winery, for up to six months.
Kerr said: ‘The French Oak Pinot Noir casks we shipped to Loch Lomond Whiskies’ cooperage previously held some of our most highly rated red wine and I can’t wait for golfers and whisky fans to discover the superb single malt scotch that they have helped produce.’
Colin Matthews, CEO of Loch Lomond Whiskies, said: ‘Since Cristie launched Kerr Cellars she has applied the same rigour and pursuit of excellence she displayed in golf to producing some of the world’s best wines.
Bottled at 48.14% abv, the whisky is said to contain notes of ‘green apple, kiwi fruit and lime citrus’ with ‘mouth-watering fruit and warming ginger spice’ on the finish.
The 2002 vintage was chosen to commemorate Kerr’s first LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) tour win in the same year.
The Vintage 2002 is Loch Lomond’s latest release in a series of golf-associated whiskies, after a five-year contract was signed last year making Loch Lomond the official spirit of the Open, Women’s British Open and Ladies Scottish Open.
The first in a series of annual releases from The Macallan, the wonderfully titled A Night on Earth in Scotland is inspired by Hogmanay, Scotland's New Year's Eve celebration. Created by Macallan lead whisky maker Sarah Burgess, whose memories of Hogmanay were a key influence to the expression, this single malt features whiskies aged in American and European oak sherry seasoned casks, as well as ex-bourbon barrels.
Those ex-bourbon barrels have imparted a distinctive helping of vanilla notes to the whisky, an homage to the 'first footer', a custom of Hogmanay where it's supposed to be good luck for a dark-haired person to be the first to visit your home after midnight on New Year. Apparently, the 'first footer' will be carrying shortbread (that's where the vanilla notes we were talking about come into this), whisky, and coal for the fire.
A Night on Earth in Scotland features designs by Japanese-French illustrator Erica Dorn, once again inspired by the New Year celebrations around the world.
Martell Cordon Bleu is the cognac for true connoisseurs and has acquired legendary status since its creation by Edouard Martell in 1912. Its distinctive taste, characterised by a predominance of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies, and its timeless bottle design make it a classic, unequalled in the world of cognac. An explosion of deliciously fruited, spice notes. Elegance linked to aromatic richness is what defines Martell Cordon Bleu.
The House of Martell has introduced a disruptive cognac within the Martell range, revealing a new cognac filtered at room temperature - and not below 0C - like most cognacs - to obtain smoother and more expressive aromas to be enjoyed on ice. Through this method, the Martell NCF's smooth taste is exceptionally preserved.
