We are very proud to present our exclusive bottling of Loch Lomond’s heavily peated single malt: Croftengea. Distilled in 2008, this whisky was matured in a single refill American oak hogshead until 2008, when it was bottled at 54.8%.
With bold notes of smoke and smoked meats beautifully underscored by Loch Lomond’s trademark fruit and rounded barley flavours, this is a dram to be savoured – not to mention a rare chance to try Croftengea outside the distillery’s blends.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Chocolate, liquorice and candied lemon start proceedings, with a rich background of earthy peat smoke. A sharp stewed apple fruitiness dominates the centre, dusted with sugar and drizzled with warm tar and TCP.
Rich smoke rolls around the mouth: a bonfire of burning peats, tarred planks, liquorice root, cocoa nibs and a handful of damp bracken. Sweetness hides behind: soft liquorice, more chocolate, minty hints, lemon Lockets and a touch of drinking chocolate. A drop of water opens everything up beautifully.
Salty caramel and burning leaves fade to leave ash and lemons. The citrus lingers for ages, with smoky tar and oak hanging around in the wings.
A big smoky dram, with a rich and chocolatey core run through with sweet smoke and occasional flashes of island character, despite not being from an island... Hints of Lagavulin-like character, maybe?.
