Royal Lochnagar

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.

Royal Lochnagar Distillers Edition 1996 Muscat
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
Lochnagar can cope with sherry but for me this is just too sweet.

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

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.
