    Royal Lochnagar is one of the smallest distilleries in the Highlands. It stands just beyond the boundaries of Balmoral Castle, at the foot of the majestic peak from which it takes its name and its pure mountain water. A combination of nature's finest ingredients and the Distiller's art produces the distinctive, mellow taste of Royal lochnagar. Twelve years in oaken casks complete the task that human skill began. This is a whisky you will treasure and enjoy with those who share your appreciation. Our Distillery manager and his staff would make you more than welcome if you should wish to visit the home of Royal Lochnagar on Royal Deeside.

    Rich honey and caramel.

    This is quite simply my favorite Single Malt. What a pity that is practically impossible to find in the USA. I can only enjoy it when I go to Europe, where it is fairly common---at least in Germany (available in most grocery sections of the big department stores). This is a superb Single Malt. I would rate it higher than all others.

    Review by Dramiel McHinson

    7550/99
    Color
    Amber (caramel color added)
    Nose
    lightly aromatic with oak, coffee and a touch of blackstrap molasses
    Body
    medium body
    Palate
    At first sweet with hints of some molasses getting drier with oak flavors taking front stage
    Finish
    medium finish on dry oak with some peat

    Not available in the US. I had to go to Germany to find this one in the local REAL store in Germersheim. Not a bad dram at all and the price was 25 Euro.
