Old & Rare Lochnagar, 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20% 7 Full but very well balanced for such an ancient character.
Provenance Lochnagar 1994
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 That guy hides a tender heart under a reserved manner. Give it time and a dash of fresh water. Definitely an outdoor dram.
Royal Lochnagar 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Complex, beautifully rounded and soothing.
Royal Lochnagar 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% Fresh and appealing.

Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Too firm and well proportioned to be deemed voluptuous – but it's a delightfully close call.
