Whisky Reviews for Inchmurrin 1996 MoS

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.12 points

  1. Falnor scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A lovely sherried Inchmurrin. Not the big chocolate sherry, but the matured/ complex one with room for spices, herbs and fruit. In this time, also a very good price €99,- for an almost 22yr old sherried whisky.

      Rose-hip and mandarin. Forest fruit like blueberry and other berries. Dried leaves and moss gives it an walk in the autumn forest feeling. Also pine trees and wet earth or meadow. Tobacco boxes and antik furniture with polish. A nice nosing whisky indeed with delicate flavours.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A full bodied and juicy palate with apricot and apples next to plums and oranges. Lot's of jams. So fruity indeed, but more rounded and sweet. Vanilla and honey with some pepper. Only in the back some creamy milk chocolate with some almond.
    • Finish
      88 88
      A soft and warming whisky. With woodspice, some nutmeg and liquorice. Dried fruit like raisins and some cold orange tea.

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Colour: copper

    Great spirit, great maturation. It's friendly and welcoming, and very complex. It gives you mostly an earthy profile. The fruit is there too, but to a lesser extent.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The leafy side of sherry maturation: autumn leaves, tobacco, dunnage warehouse and red fruits. Then: milk chocolate, coffee, toffee and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Very fresh compared with the nose. There is quite some orange juice, and maybe even some vanilla. Is there a trace of smoke too? Further it's still leafy, earthy on tobacco, forest soil, putty. Along comes a whiff of mint and ground coffe.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long and pleasant with orange marmelade, tobacco, dunnage, plum jam, coffee, milk chocolate and allspice.

  4. Implar scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    I quite like this, a nice and complex dram that’s not overly rounded. It piques my interest in this somewhat low profile distillery.
    • Nose
      First sniff is like slightly rotten fruit in the mud. Earthy notes, cherries, raisins, chocolate, mild pepper, a slight solventy note. Marzipan with some time.
    • Taste
      Sweet fruit at first, pomegranate, grapefruit, blood oranges. Then a slight smokey note too. A bitter note too, although I can’t pinpoint it, white pepper.
    • Finish
      The finish is quite long and enjoyable. Red fruit lingers with slight smoke and burnt toffee.

  5. Kaleva scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nice whisky with vibrant and pleasant nose, which has obvious sherry influence in terms of dried fruitiness. Gently smoky with beautiful and unusual character. The balance is quite good but not totally superb. A bit sharp on its full strength but becomes much softer with water. I really enjoyed it and the price of 100€ doesn’t look too high for a whisky of this quality and age.
    • Nose
      Dried fruits (raisins, apricots), syrup, vanilla, gentle smoke, fresh notes (sweet grapefruit zest), some rubbery and woody notes, water brings notes of brown sugar and vanilla cake
    • Taste
      Medium-sweet, malty, oaky, clove, caramel, some grapefruit zest notes (slightly bitter), burnt wood
    • Finish
      Warm, medium-long, quickly getting dry, oaky, nutty, a bit smoky

  10. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Color: light amber. Nose: first rather earthy, quickly supplemented with aromas of dried apricot, prunes, liquorice, black pepper, vanilla, marshmallows and honey. Taste: the earthiness of the nose is clearly present, now with notes of currants and raisins, dried plums, figs, cinnamon, clove and black pepper. The aftertaste is wonderfully soft and refined sweet.
