Whisky Reviews for Inchmoan 12-year-old

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.08 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Fire Basket

    Inchmoan is the heavily peated variety (50ppm) from Loch Lomond, in which different kinds of peat are used to dry the barley. Part of the spirit is distilled in a regular pot still, while the remainder comes from the special Lomond Still.

    The nose reminds me of a fire basked. There is both lots of sweetness and a bit of saltiness detectable. Quite pleasant. Ship’s rope. Sea weeds; But also lots of citrus in the guise of lemon and lime. Add some roasted nuts. Wet leaves. Wet clay. Some pears and litchi. I am quite fond of this, to be honest. When tasting blind, you might just confuse this with an Islay.

    Dark and sweet notes are joined by sweet peat (without the typical Islay medicinal traits though) on the one hand and maritime notes on the other. Some green garden herbs and peppers, but most of your tastebuds’ attention will be drawn by pomelo and lemon in a smoky jacket. All good, I have to say.

    The finnish, which is quite long, offers touches of ashes and some cold coffee.

    Well, this is almost as good (although quite different) than the Inchmurrin 12 (from 2017!), but lacks a bit on the fruity notes. Lovely peaty whisky, though!

    https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2018/03/22/malt-n-copper-loch-lomond/

    Loch Lomond had the first charring machine in the UK, back in 1994. Charring at LL starts at 300°c, increasing to 500°c for a medium char. A 6-7 minute char at 700°c reaches [Ardbeg] Aligator levels where the inside of the cask is effectively destroyed. 

    Inchmoan mean island of the peat. This smoker is made up of straight-necked & pot still distillate [a 66/33 ratio], with a peat level of 50ppm. LL make a medicinal peat and a spicy peat spirit, maturing them separately for around 12 years in re-charred US casks before marrying. This process creates a uniquely different peat style.

    N: Peppery & salty start with peppered ham, plimsolls, lamb and muddy white pepper. Reminds me of SMWS’s recent Laphroaig releases.
    T: More of that SMWS Laphroaig style [though lighter], with flavours of turkey, flakey pastry, white pepper and spice.
    F: Muddy ash and vanilla.
    C: Abound with family character.Scores a B-

    Reviewed in my blog:https://iwriteaboutstuffilike.com/2017/10/05/inchmurrin-12-and-inchmoan-12/
    • Nose
      Dust. Wet leaf piles. Chalk. Moulding clay. Citrus zest. Wet cardboard. Newspaper. Extinguished bonfire. Hints of pears and lychees. Light spiced wine.
    • Taste
      More dank notes, wet leaves, clay, cardboard, like in the nose, but with an additional mineral peat note. Slight lactic creaminess here, but not nearly as pronounced as the Inchmurrin 12. Bitter citrus, pomelo rind. Some cinnamon and nutmeg. A peppery flair on the swallow.
    • Finish
      Medium-long. Pepper continues throughout the finish and goes on even when everything else has faded. Mineral peat. Wet stone. Something that reminds me a lot of salty pretzels in dark chocolate.

    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 standard Inchmurrin 12, the Madeira finish and the Loch Lomond Single Grain a try. I must say, am impressed, quality drams.

    For this one: I really like this one, it has the same body and style as the Inchmurrin 12, but now with peat. Not that Islay peat, but clean peat as you can have in Ardmore. The peat is nicely in balance with the body :)
