Expert Senior WhiskyNotes Note

WhiskyNotes gave this whisky 91 points

Inchmurrin 14 yo 2003 ‘Law’ (56,3%, OB for The Whiskynerds 2017, sherry cask #17/169-1, 264 btl.)

Nose: the same aromatic fruitiness, in a sherried version, with ripe plums soaked in Armagnac, pink grapefruit, red berries and perhaps a hint of passion fruits. A good dose of fresh oak again, giving it a scent of deeply brewed fruit tea. Mouth: fruity and oaky, a style that reminds me of some sherried Irish whiskeys, mixing elegance and richness. Cherries and raspberries, grapefruit. Fresh plums and apricots. Hints of old cognac. Subtle spices in the background, and just a tad of drying oak. Quite excellent. Finish: rather long, rather minty, but always with this fruity sherry.

Such a pleasant whisky! Really, this reminded me of some of the best sherried Irish whiskeys I’ve tried. Wonderful, and probably the best value for money whisky I’ve tried this year.

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Cranberry, sour candy ('zure matten'), blood orange, mocha, raisin, apple syrup and wood. Going towards caramel with water.

Taste

Blood orange, cranberry, mocha and Turkish delight. Littlemill-ish.

Finish

Cranberry, mocha, toffee and blood orange.

Comments

Could have mistaken this one for a sherried Littlemill. Quite a surprise from a not so highly regarded distillery.

Color
Mahogany
Nose

The sherry influence is hugely evident, but also balanced and not too dominant. There's burlap, cocoa powder, lots of dried fruits (dates, sultanas), cassis and juicy plums. It has an interesting feint, vegetal edge. A touch af aniseed and nougat to finish things off.

Taste

Interestingly, the fruitiness that so characterizes the ex-bourbon cask, also makes an appearance here. The grapefruit is most evident, but there's apricot too. The sherry influence is most dominant, with milk chocolate, tobacco leaves and cherries, but it leaves room for the Inchmurrin-spirit.

Finish

Cocoa powder, dates and nectarines. Long.

Comments

This ex-sherry cask takes it up a notch, especially on the palate, where it takes some of that fruity spirit and combines it with the best a sherry sherry butt has to offer.

Eilean a' Cheo gave this whisky 92 points

N: cherries, mocha, sanguine oranges, leather, chocolate orange cake, some very distant gunpowder notes but not unpleasant ones, some herbs and dried leaves, fine wood, elegant cognac

M: first notes from the nose and then quickly your tongue is coated with some of the most aromatic nectarines

F: very long with these nectarines covered in a complex sherry flavoured sauce based on the notes that appeared in the nose

Great balance between sherry and fruit (blackberry!). Not too sweet and with dry cocoa later. Very good. 

Hope, we will have MORE of that stuff from Loch Lomond in the nearer future. C'mon!
