Review: Inchmurrin 12 Years Old
Category: Highland single malt scotch whisky
Origin: Loch Lomond distillery
Cost: £36.00 for 70cl
What they say:
Inchmurrin Whisky is distilled in the unique stills that give the whisky light, floral and grassy notes. The whisky is aged in three types of cask bourbon, refill and re-charred casks for a period of 12 years. These whiskies are then vatted together in a balance only known to our master distiller William White.
What I say:
Dram #2 from the #InchmurrinWhisky Tweet Tasting hosted by Steve @TheWhiskyWire and @LochLomond3
Full amber gold (10/20) large quick drops leave thick oily legs
Rhubarb and custard, herbal honey, some NMS character milky/lactic, creamy vanilla, fruity apple, pear and grapefruit, caramel/toffee/butterscotch oak
Toffee and fruit, grapefruit and peach, butterscotch, salt caramel, crème brulee, tannic/leathery, cinnamon buns
medium, sweet toffee drying tannic and cinnamon spice
A lovely whisky with a touch of sulphur backed by sweet cereal and honey notes. Characterful for an entry-level expression for the Inchmurrin brand.
Don’t take my word for it:
