Door number 12 of the Drinks by the Dram Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar is open and a sample of Loch Lomond 12 is revealed! On the nose I can find flavours of green apples, red apples, lemon, oranges, vanilla, kiwi fruit, a hint of cactus fruit, pears and soft spices. This fruit bowl gets extended on the palate with more sweet notes added to the mix of redcurrant, raspberry, strawberry and cherry.
The lemon, orange, red apples from the nose come back on the palate with the pears now processed into a creamy juice and mixed together with some fudge bits. This ends in a middle length finish that reveals some soft cocoa notes and mocha through all the dark forrest fruit notes. Leaving you in the end with a thick syrupy feeling of fudge and honey. Thanks to #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskyAdvent !
