  1. hs305 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    [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...

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I like, neat, tasty, not arbitrary, with 35-40 € in the green area, good standard bottling. The new owners seem to be quite competent and make the existing material quite tasty bottlings, significant increase to earlier.
    • Nose
      delicious fruity-sweet, first green apple, then canned peach, raspberry, sugary, almost candy-like (but not artificially), to a subtle aromatic hay / herbal note, really good (no vanilla-cereal-malt-boring, how to maybe would fruit)
    • Taste
      sweet, milk chocolate, toffee, a spoonful of peach jam, a pinch of pepper, a drop of cough syrup / herbal liqueur ... pretty tasty, without being boring
    • Finish
      medium long, sweet, slightly peppery with some burnt chocolate cake

  3. HammerHead scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet and fruity, caramelized apple, some apricot and lemon zest, loads of toffee, buttered toast, a mild spiciness of nutmeg and slight sawdust.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Full and creamy sweet. Toffee, cocoa butter, some apricot and peach, a drop of grapefruity bitter citrus, vegetal, quite spicy on pepper and ginger notes.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Medium length: fudge and milk chocolate, spicy peppers, some bitter notes of wood sap. Too dry for my taste.

      Reminds me of calvados, hint of caramel. I don't like the kind of burn this gives.

      Glad it's a short finish.
      Sharp and unpleasantly bitter.

    ***
    ????: gold
    ????: light, very light, wood-barrel, sour-sweet, barrel-peat, although this peat is not peat peat ... it is rich and intense, on average ...
    ????: little oily, very light, astringent, sweet, short, runs off quickly, leaving a slight tightening of the alcohol palate as if ...
    ????: sweet, short
    *
    Very weak ... no charms in the nose, a little force plus too sweet on the tongue, short finish. I can't even imagine a drink on this whisky ...
    *
    ????: 2.5 / 10
    ????: 80/100
