Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon decanting, the whisky showcases a shimmering amber hue with hints of golden straw, reflective of its maritime origin. The liquid’s silky appearance speaks volumes about its maturation process.
The aroma is an alluring interplay between maritime salinity and earthy, woodsy notes. Subtler fragrances of dried fruit and a medley of nuts come through, offset by hints of sweet tobacco and a dash of coastal brine. It's a captivating and balanced nose that beckons the taster into the depths of the whisky.
The palate unfolds with a profound richness, a testament to its 21 years of careful aging. Initial sips reveal dried fruits—mainly apricots and raisins—that are beautifully complemented by a tapestry of spice including black pepper and nutmeg. The maritime salinity detected on the nose manifests as a subtle mineral quality on the palate, offering a unique contrast to the whisky's inherent sweetness.
The finish is notably long-lasting and warming, offering a gentle fade-out that leans on spiced oak, a touch of caramel, and the consistent, yet not overpowering, note of sea spray. It is, in a word, enduring.
This blended Scotch offers a mouthfeel that is both creamy and light, a characteristic balance that can be attributed to its well-structured blend of grain and malt whiskies. It coats the mouth subtly, allowing the flavors to linger but not overwhelm.
Third Base Market & Spirits Perspective:
Campbeltown Loch Blended Scotch is an ideal expression for whisky enthusiasts looking to explore the less-ventured territories of the Scotch world. Despite being a blend, it offers complexities and nuances that can easily rival those found in single malts from the same region. Its age statement of 21 years ensures a depth and maturity that are instantly recognizable from the first sip.
Given its limited availability and age statement, we consider this bottle a valuable addition to our collection at Third Base Market & Spirits. Whether you’re an established Scotch aficionado or a curious beginner, this offering is an excellent gateway into the distinctive world of Campbeltown whiskies.
As a curated choice at Third Base Market & Spirits, Campbeltown Loch Blended Scotch Whisky serves as a rich tapestry of maritime flavors and traditional Scotch characteristics. This well-balanced, sophisticated blend is a tribute not only to its region but to the art of whisky blending itself. A bottle of Campbeltown Loch is not just a drink; it's an experience steeped in history and craftsmanship, and we are delighted to offer it for your tasting pleasure.
