Royal Lochnagar 10 (Faultline Single Barrel) Review

This was part of a mystery review/sample swap hence the cryptic label. This is a 10 year single barrel Royal Lochnagar bottled at 58.2% by Faultline.

Nose: Very, very light overall. Floral with slight brine, tangerines, and dry oak.

Palate: Quite hot up front followed by ether, funky tobacco, rotten apple, and plenty of pepper.

Finish: Very light/short – straw and lots of minerals

Rating: 71/100 – Not very impressed with this expression – disjointed and too light all around.

Value for the money: These retailed around $50 at K&L when they had them, but I would still pass at that price.
