LOCH LOMOND

It's exquisite packaging - from the embossed bottle to the stunning blue labels - is matched by the whisky within, which has a mellow, slightly peaty nose, with a hint of brandy butter. The taste on the palette is sweet, smokey, with hints of finest Madeira wine and has a long, mellow finish, with echoes of a raisany Xmas pudding.
