I've hunted without much success for some bottles as it's no longer in production, so does anyone know where it can be bought, or indeed have some bottles they could sell me? Cheers.
"Campbeltown Loch 25 year old was a great success, thanks to the quality whiskies that helped to make up the blend. Now unavailable, the 21 year old takes it place, and has plenty of fans. An excellent house blend from the home of Springbank."
But I bought a bottle of the 21 year old from them a few weeks ago and tried it against the 25 year old (a couple of mates and I bid for and won the remaining 1/3 of the bottle at the tasting). The 21 year old is exceptional as well - I don't think you can get a better whisky for £25. I usually take my whisky with about 1/3 water, but I find the 21 year old is so smooth I don't need any water.
The 25 year old is a bit darker and has more sherry and a bit more depth of flavours. At the tasting it was compared against 4 other 25 year olds including Springbank, Port Ellen and Talisker (all distillers standard bottlings), and a fair number of the people there thought the Campbeltown Loch was the best.
I've heard the 21 year old will be withdrawn soon and replaced with a 15 year old - this is a real shame as it's wonderful stuff - nectar.
I would advise everyone to try the 21 year old while it's still available.
Now that I know how to use images (from another helpful thread) here it is all re-packaged:
Now available online from Springbank Distillers - think I'll stick to the naked version available elsewhere.
Elsewhere, for example from RMW and LFW, it comes without the box and is great stuff for the price of around £25.
Also, talking of LFW and blends, I would recommend the Loch Fyne Blend as a good dram (if you like good quality blends) - the B&B I stayed in at the weekend had a complimentary decanter of the stuff in the lounge, but maybe it just tasted nicer as it was free
