If you are looking for an Inchmurrin distillery, look no further. It does not exist. This expression is from Loch Lomond Distillery. Aptly named as it is located near the famous Scottish loch. Loch Lomond is quite a peculiar distillery in that it has the capacity to produce a great variety of spirits. The distillery currently has 7 stills: 2 conventional stills, 4 stills with rectifier columns instead of swan necks, and a coffey still. Thus they are not only able to make malt whisky with different characters but also grain whisky. Their Inchmurrin line is produced using two of the modified rectifier stills.
Distillery: Loch Lomond
Age: 12 Years Old
Cask: From their website “The whisky is aged in three types of cask
bourbon, refill and re-charred casks for a period of 12 years”
Pear drops, hint of cod liver oil, raw pumpkin innards, sesame seeds, and soy sauce.
Almost over ripened bananas. Vanilla ice cream. Pumpkin. Really funky. Something salty about it too. Salmon fat.
Fish oil, pumpkin dumplings.
This was a tricky dram for me. Funky to the extreme. I had this during a tweet tasting and the other participants seemed to enjoy it quite a bit. They also didn’t seem to think it was very funky so not sure if it’s just me.
Earthy, wet wood, bark, fresh paint, marzipan, beeswax candles.
Bitter start moving to a touch of sweet. Coffee ground, honey, some fried bananas/butter.
Smooths to a sweet finish, vanilla bark, custard.
