    Part of a Loch Lomond vertical tasting.
    Rather different for such a vinous influence.
    • Nose
      Vinous, floral, a lot of cereals, some dark fruits
    • Taste
      Light, slightly spicy
    • Finish
      Short, fruity, cereals

  2. Izzino scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Aroma: whisky is like the previous one - Sherry, spicy, expressive - after a while it looks more sweet, with tones of orchard fruit (But I wouldn't tip it on Madeira on the nose.
    Taste: however much friendlier, sweet, spicy to sweet, apricot fruit, shotgun, also nut.
    It needs enough time to develop

    Inchmurrin Madeira Wood Finish 46%.

    Orange pour. Closer to dark golden than amber.

    Aroma is milky, banana and raspberry milkshake, touch of oak, touch of peachy ester. Even with a long wait it’s always just milky. Maybe gets more strawberry milkshake with time.

    Taste is buttery boiled sweets, peppery char into the finish, with slight hints of that berry fruit trying to pull through.

    A muddled sort of a dram with a poor nose but an okay taste. Mostly peppery on the palate although it took a while to get there. The pepper and chilli dominates a background of butter boiled sweets and perhaps very cheap plasticky fudge. The peppery flavour is actually okay - I can’t complain about it and it grows on you.

    On the whole, the charred peppery linger makes up for what is otherwise a flop in my opinion. I could drink this ... but then there’s plenty of stuff I’d rather drink, and life is short! 3.225/77

    • Nose
      84 84
      Fresh and sweet nose with citrus, orange, marzipan and almond notes.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Soft with lots of fruit like peaches, pears and figs.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long finish with some wood tones, nutty flavor and some vanilla flavour.

    In my eyes a successful wood finish which covers the youth of this dram almost completely.
    For under 30€ i have absolutely no regrets buying this bottle, but if i had to pay 40€ or more i would have been a bit disappointed.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Full slightly darker fruits, really nice, smells older than it is.
    • Taste
      79 79
      similar to the nose but on the palate the youth pokes through, still okay tho
    • Finish
      78 78
      still okay and fruity, but short and the youth cannot be hidden here.

    Tip: give the malt enough time to breathe ... it gets sweeter and sweeter in the nose.
    Rich sweetness on the nose. Likewise in the taste, but with more spice and fading into dark chocolate.
    Perhaps too weak for the advanced whisky drinker, although it tingles on the tongue from time to time.
    If you are looking for beautiful, sweet nuances, this is the right place.
    For me a hidden champ who doesn't have to hide from a Glendronach 12 or Glenallachie 12 in this price category.
    [86 - 82 = good whisky -> get (second) bottle? Maybe...]
    • Nose
      89 89
      initially a musty note, but evaporates over time. Has something of sherry with a slight sweetness, because the Madeira comes into its own without being dominant in the nose.
      Over time, the liqueur wine leaves its mark on the malt:
      Marzipan sweetness, almonds, brown sugar, figs, rum raisins, caramel and honey together with butterscotch.
      On the fruit side, you could call juicy plums.
      The seasoning goes towards nutmeg when he could breathe. There is also a certain maltiness.
    • Taste
      86 86
      gentle in the beginning, light, tingling sharpness on the tongue, which is well integrated. Creamy, oily mouthfeel.
      Fruits of figs, raisins, apricots and the whole range of marzipan, brown sugar, caramel and honey come into play.
      Over time, the spice turns into a bitter note of dark chocolate. A combination of walnut and hazelnut can be heard and nicely rounds off the malt.
      Second sip: still soft and pleasant, spicy and sweet - it's fun in winter ...
    • Finish
      83 83
      Remains medium long with nuts and a light spice of nutmeg and Christmas spices. It is getting drier in the mouth, but it fits in well with the overall concept.
      The weakest part, but that's still manageable.
