Linkwood 26 Years Old, Rum Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.50% 7 A bourbon cask maturation followed by a rum finish ? Take your time to enjoy this sunny dram. Really subtle.
Linkwood 26 Years Old. Wine Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.50% 8 Oak is leading the way but in an elegant way. A very spicy dram. To be matched with a beef stroganoff maybe.
Linkwood Cote Rotie
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00% 7 For me the cask is over-dominant.
Littlemill 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 6 Marked down for that cabbagey character – right back to school dinners.
Littlemill 1984, 18 Years Old, Chieftain's Choice
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 The rum finish is very sympathetic towards the natural flavours of Littlemill, but the combination never quite delivers what it promises.
Littlemill 2015 Private Cellar Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.40% 8 It has a spotlessly clean sherry finish.
Inchmurrin Madeira Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 If you a like a sherried style of whisky this one is definitely for you. Complex, rich and beautifully mature.
Loch Lomond 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Something of a hot firecracker of a whisky. Interestingly, the addition of water ramps up the smokiness on both the nose and palate
Loch Lomond Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Very sweet. Definitely a dessert whisky.
Lombard Bowmore 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 6 For a relatively young Bowmore, this seems somewhat tired.
Lombard Brora 1982
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 8 Every time I pick up the glass, I find new flavours. A Scottish aquavit to send the Danes packing.
Lombard Caperdonich 1968
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 6 Less fruity than I remember. An unusual afterdinner malt.
Lombard Glen Grant 1964
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 I usually find delicate old Glen Grants to be overwhelmed by oak. This example makes for a mature dram with considerable complexity.
Lombard Highland Park 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 8 Very slow, long, flavour development. Gets up to speed at the very end.
Lombard Jewels of Scotland Brora 1982 Cask #876
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.10% 9 A classic American oak aged, mature Highland Malt.
Lombard Jewels of Scotland Glenury Royal 1973 Cask #6867
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 9 Not enough space to describe the brilliance of this whisky!
Lombard Jewels of Scotland Lochside 1981 Cask #612
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 8 Neat, it's tight. With water it's straightforward, but pleasant.
Lombard Jewels of Scotland Springbank 1969
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.10% 8 I'm lost for words!
Lombard Lochside 1981
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 7 Lochside was a capricious malt, but it is missed nonetheless.
Lombard Mortlach 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 6 Extraordinarily pale colour. The floweriness was perhaps a hint at Mortlach but, if I were served this out of context, would I recognise it as whisky? I might guess at aquavit rather than usquebaugh.
Lombard Rosebank 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 8 A good example. Such a love potion, from a distillery that no one loved enough to keep alive.
Lombard Single Malt Glen Keith 1985
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.90% 8 A lovely mature malt which skilfully blends maturity and freshness.
Lombard Single Malt Springbank 1965
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 9 This can only come from one distillery in Scotland. Unique and stunning!
Lombard Single Malt Teaninich 1984
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Another whisky where the palate fails to deliver to what the nose promises!
Lombard Springbank 1965
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Robust, but lacks the delicacy and structure of the best Springbanks.
