  1. SAND scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    American oak 1st fill bourbon, re-char, refill. Non-chill filtered.
    NOSE: Light malt notes, breakfast cereal, some pear fruitiness. (83-84p).
    TASTE: Rather dry arrival. Then citrus, dried ginger and white pepper. Some sweetness. (84p).
    FINISH: Rather short finish, some black pepper. (83p).
    OVERALL: Fairly harmonious and aparently well made malt whisky. Perhaps for summer? Total score 84 (83) points.

  3. SimonOHA scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Easy, not badly done, but without interest.
    • Nose
      Nose not very distinct (or rather that does not really make you want to make an effort) woody, spicy and fruity and floral.
    • Taste
      Very fruity on the palate with a vanilla/peach/apple/citrus blend with a peppery finish on the finish.
    • Finish
      Short, peppery, fruity finish.

  4. Falang scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Loch Lomond Inchmurrin 12y is not bad, but no skyrocket either... Nose: Brown sugar, burned caramel, lollypops with peach. Taste: Rhubarb, peach, dried apricots and carrots. Sharp. Finish: Short and a bit herbal with hay and vanilla. Overall: hidden bitters like in orange peel + some minerals.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Brown sugar in the nose with some burned caramel, sticky-candy, lollypops with peach and orangejuice. Hidden between the sweets there is something lactic/yeasty as well... The peach becomes more dominant while sniffing and reminds me of Ice Tea Peach by Lipton.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Fruity taste with rhubarb and dried apricots. The peach returns and flirts with the oranges - but more the orangepeel then the oranges itself. The orangepeel bitters come out. They are sharp. At the back of the mouth there is a distinct taste like fresh young carrots! Strong alcohol-prickle although this dram has only 46%.
    • Finish
      76 76
      Short finish where the fruity aromas die out. Light and even a bit herbal. Some vanilla in the finish. The peach seems gone. Bit hay'ish. The aftertaste is not very striking unfortunatly.

    Loch Lomond Inchmurrin 12 years, 46% alc. Original bottling (2020). Expansion: American oak barrels

    Nose: Fruity and sweet, a lot of peach and a little apple compote, maybe pear, but the peach aroma keeps pushing its way. In addition, a little dry summer meadow, hay and very subtle cream. In the background there are mild spices, but so weak that they can hardly be described in more detail.

    Palate: Fruity and slightly oily texture, the fruit is back immediately. Concentrated peach flavors, oranges and dried apricots, mirabelle plums. The creaminess also comes back, but here as a light caramel and vanilla.

    Finish: Rather short, still mildly fruity, the spices now come out slightly. A slight aroma of black pepper remains.

    Conclusion: Slightly structured whisky that knows how to convince with its fruity aromas. Round, harmonious and pleasant. 83/100 points (2021)

  7. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, fruity, seemingly unpretentious whisky, but with some incomprehensible appeal.
    • Nose
      Sugary, fruity, with hints of red apple, peach, rum baba and oak.
    • Taste
      Heavenly apple with caramel, spices, citruses, tannins and a malty note.
    • Finish
      Medium duration, sweet, rich in apple, berry and malt tones, with a delicate oak influence.

  9. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A great and surprisingly varied malt, which at 12 years of age is already considerably voluminous and with noticeable oak notes and yet always remains very pleasant. Nothing is too dominant, no noticeably unpleasant notes.

    Well-made, honest and affordable whisky!
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very soft and pleasant, delicate sweetness, a little floral, light herbal notes, a little grassy, honey. If you give it time, intense caramel notes and even some fruity tobacco emerge.

      Really nice and extremely pleasant aroma, the alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Pleasantly spicy, creamy caramel notes, sweet herbs, very soft and delicately tart wood notes, fresh green fruits. In addition, a delicate, sweet and tart citrus note in the background.

      Here, too, the alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Sweet citrus fruits, pleasantly spicy, noticeably tart oak notes, a slight hint of caramel.

      Full, rich and balanced.
