Whisky Reviews for Inchmurrin 1997 LT

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.24 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    So that really is a liquid treasure, the Inchmurrin, namely because he does not wave his gorilla-strong arms, but is very individual, and there is still a lot to discover!
    • Nose
      90 90
      A very delicate smoke aroma like ash in the fireplace, grape skins, passion fruit whey drink, pine resin, fresh art prints (lithographs) - there is a touch of springbank in it!
      And something else, new linen cloths, maybe freshly mixed wallpaper paste? No, rather mineral fruit like mirabelle plums and round yellow plums.
    • Taste
      92 92
      So, something happens immediately: I mill my way through a spring meadow, with dandelions and sorrel like Maya the bee and swing up to the lilac and elderberry bushes that are in full bloom and suck the delicious nectar!
      With a little more time and 1-2 drops of water, I can get the malt as an old Brora with a trace of grapefruit and white pepper.
      Spicy, but never biting, and never boring in the mouth, but as fruity and subtle as only malts from Tobak can do.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long! With Manukka honey, chestnuts and especially elderflower syrup and honeydew melon (which only last).

  2. DocF did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Read on whisky notes, found interesting and uncorked. From nose to finish a funky mixture of passionate passion fruit, ripe oranges, lilac blossom, some papaya and cress, and fir resin. The nose is not the most expressive, but does not crack even when whisky 2: water 1 is diluted. It then tastes particularly fruity, sweet with extra lilac and that crappy resin note afterwards. Slightly dry finish. I also find the label (which is glued crease-free) extremely pretty.

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    not an easily accessible whisky, I recommend a drop of water or more to break his shyness, heat is good for him. The nose is a bit delicate and I have most fun with it when, after chewing a little and with a not too small dram, I can at some point perceive the ashy smoke as part of the whole. Reminds me of moderately peated stuff from the 70s that was lying around for 2 decades until the filigree, complex, living beauty emerges from behind the smoke
    • Nose
      90 90
      tender old peat - a bit like when on rainy days what comes from charcoal fires from the chimney is pushed back onto the floor, not pure chimney smoke - a touch of intoxicating sulfur (not pups, not firecrackers, rather burnt cigarette filters) is there for you me there, exciting and not unflavoring - in the further course of the nose only present in the background as a backdrop and an enriching spice that is difficult to perceive.

      In addition, there is a lush, super creamy coconut dessert note, with a splash of kirsch, sweet and sour yellow exotic fruit mix with melon, tart mango, physalis - the nose is more of a delicate plant, but it rewards patience if the nose does not breathe away permanently
    • Taste
      92 92
      magical palate - floral, crystalline smoke of the delicate ashy kind, perfectly combined with noble exotic fruit notes, fine coconut sweetness, never too much, a certain sharpness of ginger boosts the aromas so that I perceive them more intensely, significantly more intense than the nose - perfectly balanced, enticing, crystal clear aromas
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long continuation of the palate

  4. Stef89 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Great nose, unbelievably fruity taste with a somewhat dull start and a somewhat weak finish.
    However, it is still an extremely tasty malt.
    • Nose
      90 90
      I find it quite full and creamy. Not at all excessive and intrusive. On the contrary! But still there.
      The fruit is very superficial. Honeydew melon and passion fruit. Wonderfully sour and very clear.
      Alcohol is very easy to recognize when taking a deep breath, but it has a supporting and supporting effect. Now Ringelotte comes through. The whole thing is accompanied by a little fresh paint.
      I have no smoke here
      More of that !
    • Taste
      89 89
      First see herb and barrel-heavy. Brief disappointment ... then this whisky becomes so fruity that it is a real pleasure. Almost like passion fruit juice as a spritzer. Slightly tingling and very mouthwashing. Smoke comes through here too. The whole thing then has a neat astringent effect and almost forces you to take the next sip.
      If it weren't for the dull and bitter approach, the palate would surpass the nose. So one point less.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish remains extremely yellow-fruity and juicy. Soft bitter notes come in waves over the palate. Unfortunately it will soon be over. Unfortunately, the bottom in the rating because it is a bit thin.

  5. Astrid scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very tasty and versatile on the nose, but unfortunately it doesn't come out so well later.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Yeast dough with grapes, coconut, nectarine and pear compote, banana, spicy oak wood and toffee, foam, apple and vanilla, blossom honey, apricot dumplings, ash, millet, rose water, orange and physalis, jasmine and cornflower, a touch of dark chocolate, iodine, wood dust, fermented passion fruit
    • Taste
      85 85
      Pine resin and oak wood, lime wedges and rosemary, sweet and lightly smoked barley malt, coconut, pepper and clove, tobacco, fine ash and caramel when you exhale, vanilla and banana, a slight bitterness on the tongue, traces of cardamom and cedar
    • Finish
      85 85
      slightly sulphurous with coconut and clove, dry and resinous with oak, hints of ash and honey, walnuts, lemon juice

  6. WhiskyCasual scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice and fruity with tropical hints and the light ashiness, which also brings complexity

  7. Totoro scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    As often with Loch Lomond, the palate is too cereal-forward for my taste, but boy, what a nose!
    • Nose
      91 91
      A really successful mélange of lush fruit notes (banana, papaya, melon, mango, passion fruit), high-quality ex-bourbon oak (contributing creamy tannins, coconut, and corn-syrup sweetness), and much-reduced, consolidated peat smoke. Almost like a hybrid between an über-fruity Ardmore and an excellent batch of Benriach Authenticus 25.
      Classy stuff, appearing much older than it is.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Barley up front (easily identifiable LL DNA), with lots of cereals and a dry, malty aspect, followed by a waft of softly bitter smoke, which lingers and extends into a fruity finale. However, the fruitiness is less exuberant and less well-defined here than on the nose, and there's a ginger / white pepper theme going on that I find more of a distraction than a welcome addition.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The smoke persists, turning cold and ashy. Spicy and malty, with the fruit becoming more of an undercurrent now, and merging with a floral aspect (lilac?). Long.
