  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur


    N: Not sure I’ve much more to add than my first impressions [WLP86]. After my positive experience after positive experience with sherry of late [WLP/WLP], this whisky hits the sherried-malty spot very nicely indeed. In the main, it’s raisins/dates/prunes/wax capacitors/crushed nuts/dried bread dipped in that honeyed-oozing [manzanilla] sherry,… wee wee wee, all the way home.

    T: A youthful one but without any feinty immaturity [105!]. Being moderately [sherry]-sweet and incredibly well tempered, it’s incredibly easy to drink. Being so sherry-led, it works effortlessly with food too – try olives for starters! Chocolatey, citrusy/gingery, and [flor?]/waxy on the turn,…

    F: ,… with a little spice to compliment the continuing manzanilla-driven sweetness. After all that [sherry], there’s the maltiness right at the tail.

    C: Looking at my initial notes, I think I sighted this one rather well from the off. It’s one of those malts where the moreishness [= consensus] allows for/forgives any technical ambiguities.

    What version of Loch Lomond is Inchmurrin again? Cue me [WLP]: ‘It’s made exclusively from Loch Lomond’s hybrid pot still with a column on top that consists of 17 plates. With reflux occurring within each plate and a water jacket acting as a mini condenser on top, this process maximises the oils and produces a spirit at 85% abv, reduced to 65% before being casked’.

    N: The sweet sherry wine talks loudest, blatantly all-sherry at first. Making for a sweet raisiny/root ginger/rubbery/biscuity/chestnut-y nose, it’s rich,… even elegant, yet without airs or graces. Could be anywhere between 8 and 18 years old, at times.

    T: Unequivocally abv-strong spirit, the arrival is delicious if fleeting. Sherry into malty honey, molasses…. the sherry cask influence is not dominating as such, but is un-ignorable – not a sherry bomb, more a stealth bomber. ‘Balblair meets Jerez’, perhaps, there is an amicable relationship here, a match,… In other words, an elegant full [manzanilla] sherry-laden malt experience.

    F: A lift-off finish save for the lingering liquorice-y dry-grape tannic malty slick.

    C: Without a shadow of a doubt, a whisky gateway for sherry fans and perhaps vice versa. For the cask alone, I’m getting myself a bottle, all brought about because of [SWC] Victor’s celebratory gifts. Many thanks.
