Review: Campbeltown Loch Blended Scotch Whisky

campbeltown lochSpringbank produces this simple blend — no age statement, but it’s 5 years old — including some of its own, highly-prized Campbeltown whisky, Longrow and, of course, Springbank. 40% malt and 60% grain whisky, it’s an ultra-pale, and lightly fragrant dram.

Quite innocuous, this is basically a drinkable, non-offensive whisky. Light campfire notes on the nose, the body offers light smoke, touches of honey, and floral notes. None of this is particularly heavy. The cereal notes — Honeycomb, perhaps — on the finish are the strongest component in the blend, and even that is on the mild side.

It’s not a particularly memorable whisky, but the price won’t much impact your wallet either, so there’s no harm keeping a bottle of it around for guests you deem unworthy of the single malts.

80 proof.

    your review is pedestrian and the whiskey you describe as such is not. Give it a chance in your glass. Even though it’s your it drinks well beyond its age.

    Now that’s some quality ambush trolling.
