    I have grown to become sceptical about most of what comes out from that concrete block on the shores of Loch Lomond.
    But this is actually good, a very nice Madeira finish indeed.
    • Nose
      82 82
      The Madeira wood is there.
      Sweet, red fruits.
      A spicy fruitcake.
      Strawberries with vanilla custard.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Arrives a little hot with peppers.
      Again that sweet spicy fruitcake.
      Butterscotch and fudge.
      Very tasty.

      No surprices, it just fades.
      Pleasant, but too short.

    Initially quenched from the nose, because it's me
    he seemed to me too much and too artificial, over time
    then always better. Even if that
    Finish is not exactly subtle. Not
    so good that I would have to order immediately (also
    if I say that he is fairly priced), but
    so that I enjoy the rest of the sample
    will have.
    • Nose
      Starts strongly fruity, red fruits, very sweet,
      very slight adhesive note. Seems to me in the first
      Moment to charge. Then come citrus fruits,
      Butter biscuits, vanilla, spices and will over time
      more pleasant and interesting.
    • Taste
      In the mouth also first the fruit, then pepper, light
      sharp, but has a nice intensity and it finds
      an interplay of slightly vinous fruits instead.
      Paired with an interesting spice that tends to be in
      the spice and herbs go direction.
    • Finish
      The spice then stays with one
      slight wine-mints in the finish.

    Aroma: fruit-woody, sweet grape juice, berry juice, strawberry jam, caramel, charred wood, bark, dry oatmeal, vanilla pastries. Not very difficult, but tasty and harmonious.

    Taste: spicy, a mixture of peppers, honey, candied fruit, very sweet berry jam, figs, dates, dark raisins, some wood and tannins.

    Finish: sweet, repeats the taste, dark raisins, dates, spices, oak tannins, medium length.

    Rating: 83

    The result: a good dessert dessert, bright, open, with a predominance of sweet dried fruit motifs, ostinki and oak, a little straightforward, but sometimes this is what you want.

    • Nose
      Citrus fruits, spices, light clementines
    • Taste
      Sweet, honey, caramel, fruit, oak, nutty
    • Finish
      Dry and Nutty

      Somehow the whisky does not excite me, Probably too young - I had expected more, since I have already tasted good drops of Inchmurrin.

  7. Albaron scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Tasty, surprisingly good, the Madeira is quite recognizable but also the oak and only a little tannins. Even if there is no age here, he is not very young, at least not young.
    • Nose
      Toffee, caramel, raisins, fruit cake, but also a green note, as from an Irish, spring onions, more sweet than sour and very fleshy
    • Taste
      strong, but not alcoholic, malty, also here raisins, the fruit cake, nice juicy, caramel and toffee, quite salivary
    • Finish
      Here, in addition to the decaying fruits, there are also oak spices, but nicely balanced, very pleasant

  8. ctu scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Powerful and deep, but not too complex Inchmurrin. Especially the nose and balance are prominent.
    • Nose
      Honey, raisin, vanilla, spicy oak and waxy fruits.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Big spicy oak. Citruses, salted minerals and sweet fruits.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, fruity, oaky.

  10. fgg scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Special dram. A lot of herbs where the pepper and ginger clearly stick out the head.
    • Nose
      Slightly fruity. Some pear, banana. Touch of vanilla. Something stale. There is also a spicy side with pepper, ginger and some nutmeg.
    • Taste
      Sweet creamy taste. Special but I taste the smell of a snack bar. Spicy through the pepper and the ginger. I do not find the nutmeg in the taste.
    • Finish
      Spicy and slightly creamy. Medium to long.
