Palate: Charcoal, cigar ash and black pepper. Grilled asparagus, grilled banana peppers and heavily toasted wood. Teriyaki sauce and water from plastic bottles. Some nice tart notes towards the end: Passion fruit, lemon zest and yellow grapefruits. And also a little dairy: Cottage cheese and sour cream.
Finish: Long with black pepper, salt and plastic food containers.
Overall: This one didn't disappoint either... Very well textured in spite of its relatively low abv. Heavily peated, sweet, tart and spicy. Floral, fruity and balanced. In the end I was surprised that there were no ex-sherry casks involved in blending to be honest. Another clear win for Loch Lomond..!
