Loch Lomond, Inchmurrin 18YO (700ml)
Loch Lomond Distillery - Inchmurrin 18YO
LOCH LOMOND DISTILLERY, ISLAND COLLECTION
The enchanting isle of Inchmurrin is the largest of Loch Lomond’s islands and was once home to a chapel built by Christian monks in the 7th century.
Known as the ‘grassy isle’, it is soft, rounded and wonderfully wooded—attributes sought after in many a malt.
Large enough to support a small community, Inchmurrin lends its name to three distinctive whiskies in the island collection—each unique, but all sharing the characteristics which make this range beautifully different.
Inchmurrin Whisky is distilled in the unique stills that give the whisky light, floral and grassy notes.
Nose: Fruity, zesty aromas. Hints of caramel, malt and lychee. Orange rinds.
Palate: Candied lemon and tropical fruit, with sweet vanilla and gingerbread. Incredibly fruity, just sings of fruit 'n' nut chocolate bars.
Finish: Long, warming finish. Stem ginger and pineapple.
As whisky has been aged in wood for 18 years, it brings out sweeter more woody notes from the character of the casks.
During that period Tommy Wallace was the master cooper, he was responsible for selecting the best casks in which to lay down this wonderfully character-full liquid.
