Campbeltown Loch Blended Scotch Whisky
A relatively new blended whisky to me, J & A Mitchell’s Campbeltown Loch is currently pipping most other standard blends at the post on my whisky drinking shelf. Not super well known or in fact produced on a huge scale, this tasty regionalised favorite is an extremely well behaved Blended Scotch Whisky
The malt used in this blend has the real influence of the region (probably Springbank and Hazelburn) coupled with nicely balanced grains (40% malt, 60% grain), this blend is not one to be overlooked… whisky snobs may even be fooled into thinking this dram is from the luxury blend category.
So, this 1.5 litre bottle was bought from Cadenheads in Campbeltown at the very attractive price of £32… #bargain. Below are my notes.
