Review: McClelland’s Lowland Single Malt Scotch
Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 23, 2010
I have come to my final review of the series of McClelland’s Single Malt Whiskies. McClelland’s Lowland Single Malt whisky is the least typical of the four main expressions of this brand. In fact, it was difficult for me, in a blind taste test, to associate this whisky with any particular region, or should I say style, of Scottish whisky. In the end, I correctly named this a Lowland whisky in a blind taste test, more as a matter of default, than by ascertaining distinct lowland characteristics from the dram. The whisky is produced by Morrison Bowmore Distillers. It is distilled from a distillery in the Lowland region of Scotland, and selected to represent the character and essence of the Lowland whisky region.
Here is an excerpt from my review:
“…This whisky is somewhat of a yellow/golden colour in the glass. When I swirl the glass I noticed only a light oil and very skinny legs on the sides of the glass. The aroma from the glass was unexpectedly harsh. I would describe it as acrid and pungent. I also received charred woody aromas and darkly caramelized sugars….”

As well I have an excellent cocktail suggestion from forrest, The Lowland Holiday Scotch Sour. Enjoy the review
