  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Inchmurrin to me is like coming home, it’s always a pleasure but this one feels like coming home after a big restoration. This are different, new and interesting here.
    • Nose
      A little a-typical nose for an Inchmurrin. I miss the extremely fruity / grassy body a bit. It does have it but not as excessive as I often get with Inchmurrin.
      The nose is dirty and somewhat moldy. Not directly unpleasant but just different. The metal/copper flavor is a bit disturbed by something like rubber. Apple compote, stewed pears, bittersweet plumb juice. It feels like ‘messed with’ fruits, not just normal fruits. Vanilla cream yoghurt and burnt cinnamon sticks give a spiced twist. The whole appears funky and earthy somehow. A really different style of Inchmurrin on the nose that’s for sure!
    • Taste
      Smooth, silky and even a bit waxy. Sweet and a wee bitter upon arrival. Where the nose was really funky and different, the palate offers more ‘normal fruits and spices. In my opinion chili peppers are a bit prominent and the alcohol hasn’t been really greatly integrated. Mild spices like vanilla, honey and fudge appear to take the lead after a while.
    • Finish
      The finish is a continuation of the palate mainly. It focuses on sweet and almost candy-like flavors. Honeyed candy, honeyed licorices, vanilla sweets and chocolate caramel candy like in those Rolo candy rolls.

      I wonder in what exact preset of the lomond stills this one has been distilled. To me it seems to be a regular ex-bourbon cask but something is definitely going on around the spirit. I suspect a less resistant preset which gives more room to heavy parts.

    Shared this bottle with Macerik. One thing is for sure; they are doing something well at Loch Lomond Group. Both Glen Scotia and Loch Lomond distillery have released some great stuff lately.

    So is this Inchmurrin bottling.
    • Nose
      87 87
      First impression is the typical fruity nose of Inchmurrin. But this whisky needs some water and time in the glass. After some time an unexpected dirty and earthy smell comes forward. Reminds me somewhat of Ben Nevis (IB's).
    • Taste
      88 88
      Full fruity and fresh body, with hinds of citrus and spices; especially pepper.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long to long. Fruits and spices remain in full balance until the very end.

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very good dram, although the nose is a bit strange and not as good as the body and finish. But overall, I really like this one.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fruity, but with some overripe touch. Also some rubber, stewed pears. Hesitating wether I appreciate it or if it's a little unpleasant... Strange at least. Herbal, and later on some clear earthy tones, moss.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The strange start now disappears, full taste, some pepper, fruity, raspberry, honey and peach. Later on some chocolate with a sour edge, and some caramel.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still some pepper, full, peach now, honey. Pretty long. AS it develops, even more peach now, and longer.
