#Highlands, #Croftengea - @lochlomondmalts , by @thesinglecask , 11 Year Old

Hogshed Cask 209, Distilled - 20/03/2007, Bottled - 15/05/2018, ABV 60.2%, 315 Bottles

Nose: wet, damp cloth , leather there's still more notes which i couldnt point out

Taste: prickly spice , there's this aroma lingering but i couldnt identify, sweetness

Finish: medium long finish, lingering leather like sweetness

This is a complex dram for me
