Inchmurrin 12 Year Old Review


2nd March 2017

Review of the Loch Lomond Inchmurrin 12 year old single malt whisky.

Inchmurrin 12 Year Old ReviewThe Inchmurrin 12 year old from the Loch Lomond distillery's Island Collection was matured in a combination of three types of cask, Bourbon, Refill and Recharged casks just like the standard Loch Lomond 12 year old was but it is definitely a different whisky.

The Inchmurrin 12 year old is bottled at 46% ABV and is non chill-filtered, it is currently available from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt for around 41

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose:  A mix of grapefruit, pear, honey and toffee.

Taste: The toffee and grapefruit from the nose is joined by a little butterscotch. A lovely Demerara sugar sweetness boosts the pleasure, some vanilla and touch of orange joins the procession but are beaten back by the grapefruit.

Finish: A longish finish, the grapefruit is still hanging in there, a little peppery, some fudge and mildly drying oak spice.

Comment: After the superb Loch Lomond 12 year old I had high hopes for this, although I can't fault it, it isn't quite in the same league as the Loch Lomond 12 for quality and pleasure.

According to Loch Lomond it was matured in the same combination of three types of cask, Bourbon, Refill and Recharged casks as the standard Loch Lomond 12 year old was but it is definitely a different whisky and obviously the proportion of of each cask in the mix for the Inchmurrin was quite different from that of the standard Loch Lomond 12. The Inchmurrin is still an enjoyable dram but for the price it is difficult to look past the Loch Lomond 12 but still worth a try on your whisky journey.

SMW Score 82/100

The Inchmurrin 12 Year Old will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
