Inchmurrin 2001 Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: More restrained fruit than most Inchmurrin: hints of wine gums and gummi bears with fresh apples, pears, lime peel and white melon. Sweet cream sits in a layer on top, sprinkled with nutmeg and pine needles.
Palate: An initial hit of sweet cream is swamped by sweet and sharp orchard and stone fruit: apples and pears, peaches and nectarines. Orange zest builds as the other fruit fades, with sweet spice and fruity sweets coming in from the back.
Finish: Zesty citrus, apple sauce and buttered spice.
Comment: A grown-up Inchmurrin – more breakfast preserves and fruity condiments than childhood sweetshops – and excellent with it.
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Fresh, bright fruity notes of melon, apple and ripe peach, with a lovely aromatic spiciness layered over the top. Freshly cut ginger, a touch of vanilla cream and marshmallow.
Palate: The clean fruit continues on to the palate, even more refreshing than the nose. Very crisp and clean notes of melon, banana leaf and gooseberry – a drop of water unlocks even more fruit, bringing peach and zesty orange.
Finish: The ginger returns, adding a fresh, spicy note to the warm ripe fruit.
Comment: One of the fruitiest whiskies I’ve tried in recent months, this is a beautifully made dram that is clean as a whistle.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Fresh and slightly tangy orange peel, followed by barley sugar, a vanilla sweetness, a ginger spiciness and melted brown sugar at the end.
