hs305
Connoisseur hs305 Review note
12 May 2017 11:36 pm
hs305 gave this whisky 84 points
[May, 2017]  I just did a private tour of Loch Lomond distillery, one of the very last sites I have not been in the stillhouse so far.  The tour was done very professionally by Ibon and clarified a lot of my questions about this fascinating distillery that produces so many different styles of whisky under one roof.  So this is a good reason to do some reviews of their current product range.

Inchmurrin is the unpeated malt whisky that is distilled in the very special Lomond style stills (they call it the Inchmurrin stills, of course) at Loch Lomond distillery.  In their necks 17 different copper plates are installed at various positions that allow different cut-off points during distillation.  For the production of this Inchmurrin malt they cut-off once at traditional 63-68% for a more fruity and oily spirit as well as at unusual 83-85% for a more grassy, peppery and floral distillate.

The nose is exactly this combination of fruity (green apples, peaches) and grassy (summer floral) aromas imbedded in a sweet and light wooden structure.  The mouthfeel is slightly peppery and a little adstringent (cold ashes, not unpleasant).  On the palate a barley sugary and fruity profile developes with some nutty and spicy notes.  The finish is of medium length, sweet and not drying at all.  An easy-to-drink dram without noticeable off-notes that (in my view) substantially improved compared with earlier releases.  Surprisingly good for such a standard edition...

Color
Deep copper
Nose

lecker fruchtig-süß, erst grüner Apfel, dann Dosenpfirsich, Himbeere,  zuckrig, fast Bonbon-mäßig (aber nicht künstlich), dazu 'ne dezente aromatische Heu-/Kräuternote, richtig gut (kein Vanille-Getreide-Malz-Langweiler, wie man vielleicht befrüchten würde)

Taste

süß, Milchschokolade, Toffee, ein Löffelchen Pfirsichmarmelade, eine Prise Pfeffer, ein Tropfen Hustensaft/Kräuterlikör... ziemlich süffig, ohne langweilig zu sein

Finish

mittellang, süß, leicht pfeffrig mit etwas angebranntem Schokorührkuchen

Comments

Gefällt mir, ordentlich, süffig, nicht beliebig, mit 35-40€ im grünen Bereich, gute Standardabfüllung. Die neuen Besitzer scheinen ziemlich kompetent zu sein und machen aus dem vorhandenen Stoff recht leckere Abfüllungen, deutliche Steigerung zu früher.

Nose

Rather aromatic: a bit green and vegetal, chocolate, vanilla, raspberry and a fresh side with lemon and eucalyptus .


Taste

Quite grainy with puff pastry, salted peanuts, a bit of leather, mineral water, raspberries and mango .


Finish

Light smoke, a feeling of burnt wood, slightly floral and a faint fruitiness .


Comments

A pleasant surpise from Loch Lomond distillery. It's rather complex, and combines fruitiness with a 'dirty' Springbank-like side.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Dust. Orange peel. Vanilla. Dried apricots. Varnish. Artificial tropical fruit flavouring (reminds me a lot of the Tropical Punch flavoured Fanta from that used to be around when I was a kid). Guava fruit leather. Slight lactic, creamy note in the background, like English style fudge.

Taste

Bitter wood. Vanilla. Dried fruits. Fruit leather. Nutmeg. More tropical fruit flavouring. Very juicy limes. Pickled ginger. Pin lemonade. Sandalwood.

Finish

Medium-long. Sandalwood and other woody spices pick up the pace here. Limes. Fruit notes are still the main component but a bit darker, like plums and nectarines, along with some cacao.

Nose

neat: fresh orange peel, yeasty bread dough and spring flowers, oatmeal with tangy peach slices and unsweetened yogurt, rubber and licorice pastels, violet candy, dried tea leaves (gunpowder) and orange peel, nutmeg and allspice, buttery pastry crust, peach schnapps, dried and sugar dusted papaya and pineapple, and Lemon Head candy

w/water: Tangy peaches, fruity-floral malt with nutmeg and a touch of char, baked fuji apples and leaf litter, flaky pastry crust with brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, maple syrup and barely ripe peaches, a hint of solvent, orange blossom water, raw brown sugar, homemade unsweetened apple cider, orange peel and vanilla, and a little pepper.

Taste

neat: Rich barley, dried papaya and candied ginger, a touch of cafe latte, salty licorice, mellow oak tannins

w/water: Soft malt and oak tannins with a bit of birch syrup, barley ripe bananas and tart lemon cream, mixed ripe fruits (peach, pineapple, papaya, apricot), vanilla and bitter-sweet orange

Finish

neat: Green bananas, barely ripe peaches and ripe cantaloupe, a faint vanilla pod, and drying bitter-sweet floral tannins.

w/water: Floral honey, a touch of menthol, walnuts and a little butterscotch and smoke, candied lemon peel, bitter-sweet floral tannins, bitter chocolate, and a savory herbal fade.

Comments

If nothing else, give this one a few minutes after pouring it. Adding a teaspoon or a teaspoon and a half of water definitely brings out the softer, more rounded and charismatic character of this whisky. It also slows a rush of smells and flavors to a more manageable pace. It's not a whisky for everyone or all occasions, but it is undeniably characterful and pleasantly challenging.

Tasted at WTF2017 - August 2017

Older Loch Lomond whisky wasn't really one of my favourites, but I heard good stories  about it lately, including the hype around the "law and order Whiskynerds bottlings" So i gave this one, together with the Inchmurrin Madeira Finish, the peated Inchmoan and the Loch Lomond Single Grain a try. I must say, am impressed, quality drams.

For this one: Really a good quality basic whisky, really impressive for a "standard 12yo" bottling. Cannot name alot of whisky where their basic bottling is of such level.

  • N: After the Madeira NAS WB, this is a wholly different beast and far creamier.
  • T: The fruity funk comes from the high copper contact, and comes with a lightness.
  • F: Finishes big & brash. The char brings smoke. Becomes ruddy.
  • C: Really different - a ‘hybrid’ indeed.

Etwas flach aber sehr süß auch im Geschmack, auch hier die Trockenpflaumen und die Milchschokolade, Fudge, reife Banane, Ingwer, etwas Vanille, Lakritz

Mittellang

Comments

Bin positiv überrascht von diesem Whisky, er ist leicht zugänglich, sehr ausgewogen mit schöner Süße ohne Ecken und Kanten. Vielleicht war ich etwas voreingenommen weil ich eher in Richtung klassische Loch Lomonds gedacht habe aber damit ist er überhaupt nicht zu vergleichen - 08.04.2017

Candy! Lots of candy, sweet spices and syrup, floral, (vanilla)oil. 

With some water: licorice
Taste

A thick, greasy texture with notes of grass, oil and spices, almost pressing down the lighter floral notes in the background.

With water: some salty tones coming through, along with more licorice and vanilla
Finish

Medium long, sweet and greasy thick, salty with a rather sharp alcohol bite that settles down after some 20 minutes, when it reaches the sweet spot...

Comments

Certainly a 'different' Highland SM. I think this will go down as a love it or hate it whisky, with me personally on the loving side. I find it bold and daring to release such a whisky that stands out from the rest. scores 83 - 84 points in my book...
