Inchmurrin is one of several single malts produced at the multi-tasking Loch Lomond Distillery. In 2014 the distillery was purchased by Colin Matthews, with financial backing of Exponent Group.
The new owner decided to phase out few single malt brands, such as Craiglodge and Glen Douglas, and focused initially on Loch Lomond and Inchmurrin. The single cask expression presented here comprises whisky distilled in 2003 and aged for 4 years in ex-bourbon cask and additional 8 in ex-sherry hogshead no. 160-3. Bottled at natural strength of 55.3% abv in September 2016 exclusively for the Polish importer of the brand, M&P Company. Only 228 bottles were produced.
Nose: prunes, black currant jam, raisins, brown sugar, maple syrup, toffee, honey, hints of furniture polish and oak.
Palate: follows the nose, raisins, prunes, black currants, butterscotch, milk chocolate, caramel, dash of nutmeg and hints of charred oak.
Finish: pretty long, with notes of dried fruits, hard candy, dash of mixed spice and oak.
