- ABV: 46%
Inchmurrin is a bottling from the Loch Lomond distillery. Loch Lomand are possibly the most versatile distillery in Scotland. They have pot still, coffee stills and 4 Lomond stills. These allow a real artisan approach to how the spirit is made.
The bottle...what can I say. If you haven't seen it you should google it now. No really, do it before reading the rest of the review. Wow, its like Grey goose on crack. Someone in marketing wasn't told this was Scotch.
Pale in the glass, you would never think this had spent 18 years in oak. This makes me guess it wasn't first fill casks that were used (ex bourbon).
The nose is earthy, vegetative, leather, iced tea, and oak. Sweet on the attack, vanilla, oak, fruity, barley, coffee notes. It is very interesting, smooth, reminiscent of Penderyn in the style of the spirit in character.
Medium long finish, dry, spiced white pepper. Don't add water. It doesn't do anything for it.
