ABV: 52.8%

Tasting note: Of the varying styles produced at Loch Lomond, 'Inchmurrin' falls into the category of unpeated malt. It's also one of their lighter, fruitier distillates. This one was re-racked into an Oloroso hogshead for the last four years of its maturation. The sherry here seems to have a drying effect on the nose, giving a nutty, balsa wood edge to the malt. Air contact adds hints of sour plums, becoming sweeter after eight to ten minutes in the glass. It's a fairly dry whisky, with heat from front to back, the palate suggesting rose-hips, dried mango and old rolling tobacco. Momentarily fruity at the finish, checked by astringency. 225 bottles. 52.8% Non chill filtered.
