The clans of Scotland have survived for centuries and although belonging to a clan today is quite a different experience to the one you may have had 300 or 400 years ago, many of the traditional values and feelings are the same. While the term “Clan” means family or children in Scots gaelic, not everyone in the same clan was actually related to one another. The clan structure however embodied a feeling of unity and strength, a spirit of togetherness and friendship and one which allowed the Clansmen to have control over their designated land. (You can see from our map the clans which surrounded Loch Lomond). The spirit of kinship is reflected in our range of Loch Lomond whiskies-to be enjoyed on their own and also shared with others!
Loch Lomond 18 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been maturing in the finest oak barrels chosen by Tommy Wallace, our master cooper at the time. Time and nature has been allowed to bring out the sweeter character of the wood with a subtle characteristic hint of peat and smoke, ensuring a well balanced finish. It is non chill-filtered, to keep things just as nature intended.
NOSE: Green apple and grapefruit aromas fuse before the sweet character of honeysuckle and mature oak comes through.
PALATE: Full bodied and rounded. Elegant wood notes of toasted oak and cigar box become green fruits with apple and gooseberry.
FINISH: Long finish with dried tea and tobacco leaf in balance with soft medicinal peatiness and wood smoke.
