Distillery Select 'Croftengea' (distilled at Loch Lomond), Cask #1, 10 year old, 45%

Price: $65.00 Issue: Fall 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

When compared to Craiglodge, reviewed above, this whisky is more intensely smoky, tarry, and youthful on the palate. The other flavors, while in the same vein as Craiglodge, are more reserved (or perhaps more greatly overshadowed by the peat). If your intent is full-throttle peat, this is your whisky. If you want variety on the palate, go for the Craiglodge.
