    Very fresh and young for a 21 YO, a bit unbalanced but a great fruity dram.

  7. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Another great expression of the Loch Lomond Distillery. The Cadenhead shop confirmed this is an Inchmurrin to be exact but it’s seriously hard to miss that detail even without their confirmation. This has writen Inchmurrin all over it. A beautiful fresh fruit bomb distilled in their unique long neck potstills with a high cut between 94% and 85% ABV.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruit, citrus fruits, lemon peel, fresh oak wood. Splendid nose! it can use some water to ease down a bit.
    • Taste
      Bittersweet arrival. Oily, slightly dry and rather strong. Fresh, fruity and really tastefull. Lemontea and a herbal note.
    • Finish
      Long standing fresh and full bodied finish. Very pleasant! Grassy note with again some lemon as well.

      An outstanding combination with very old Dutch cheese!

    After a great nose, the taste promised a lot but upset, difficulties with balance, sorry ...
