  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose is wonderfully fruity and this Inchmurrin feels older than the Loch Lomond 12 (which it is not of course), as it seems less malty. It also has a nice creamy mouthfeel and is well balanced too.
    • Nose
      Quite fruity straight away. Red apples, sweet pears and peach. A very faint hint of nutmeg and cinnamon, but it’s there. Then a lemon note. A drop of honey and caramel fudge.
    • Taste
      Also rather fruity, with peach again, but also oranges here. A hint of creamy vanilla. Caramel fudge. Honey as well. A touch of black pepper.
    • Finish
      Short to mid-long with caramel, a hint of toffee and black pepper here too.

    Appearance: Deep golden orange to amber.

    Nose: Big pot still spices and intensely fruity. Crisp malt, lemon, apple, pear. Very Irish feel. Vanilla and caramel. Hint of ginger.

    Palate: Oak, light smoke, spices, ginger, cardamon, apple, light stone fruit, caramel, vanilla. Very unique for a Scotch single malt.

    Finish: Vanilla crème, pepper, ginger, oak, pot spices, caramel.

    With Water: Bigger fruit. More stone fruit.

    Overall: Comes across more as Irish than Scotch in some ways. Wonderfully spiciness, but great malt too. A very nice sipper for a good price.

    Where else can you find something (somewhat) reminiscent of Littlemill for less than 50 euro?
    • Nose
      Initially some faint oak shavings, but we quickly descent into creamy vanilla, red apples, peach and mango. It has some grassy notes too, as well as a touch of breakfast cereals.
    • Taste
      There's that fruity Inchmurrin arrival that's definitely in the same ballpark as those older Littlemill, albeit with a little less depth. Peaches, pink grapefruit and bitter oranges, but also nutmeg, cloves and a whiff of honey.
    • Finish
      Oak spices, orange pith. Finally a touch of milk chocolate. Medium in length.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A nice malt that you like to drink. It seems to me a bit more defined than the previous version, with a slight "Campbeltownness".
    • Nose
      sweet, fruity, citrus and above all orange, musty, but somehow fresh and youthful. Well.
    • Taste
      Rounder and more harmonious as expected. Full and malty, fruity.
    • Finish
      The finish also rather light and round, orange notes, citrus, sweetness, a bit tingling and then a little bitter oak at the end.
