Whisky Reviews for Inchmurrin 2003

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.07 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Plenty of sweetness, so you might need a sweet tooth to really enjoy this whisky. Although I don't feel the sweet Sauternes dominates too much. There's enough room for other flavours and aromas.
    • Nose
      Syrupy with a good amount of caramel custard, butterscotch and honey. Also fruity notes of orange peel, nectarine and, surprisingly, some strawberries too. I don't find those too often in a whisky. Extremely gentle, yet voluptuous.
    • Taste
      Very creamy and syrupy, with lots of room for those Inchmurrin fruits to shine. Mandarines, grapefruit and tangerines. The fruits mix well with caramel and honey, but there's also a place reserved for spices like ginger and pepper.
    • Finish
      Lingers on sweet and fruity notes. Medium in length.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Strawberry, cherry and custard. Egg cake or perhaps even egg liquor. Caramel, tonic, dough and herbs. With water also tangerine. Typical Sauternes influence, this reminds me much more of a Sauternes-matured Glen Els (German) than of any other Scottish whisky. But it has something grain-like in the background as well.
    • Taste
      Toffee, cherry and spices such as cinnamon. Blood orange, and even more when adding water.
    • Finish
      Strawberry, toffee, blood orange and cinnamon. A Littlemill-ish finish.

  3. HammerHead scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: syrupy, sweet fruit treats, loads of toffee, butterscotch, orange, peach, baked apple and apricots

    Taste: quite a mouthfull, creamy, clear toffee, caramel, with some honey and vanilla

    Finish: medium length, coating your throat with a fudgy sweetness and honey syrup

    All in all a very nice fruity and fudgy adventure.
