Inchmurrin is a single malt hailing from the ever-innovative Loch Lomond distillery. The production for this single malt uses rather quirky pot stills that have straight necks and rectifying plates (similar to necks found on a column still). This bottling from Hunter Laing was distilled in 1996 and was matured in a refill hogshead cask for 24 years, 50% with an out-turn of 206 bottles. The nose is all fruit salad, waves of liquorice, berries and chewy candy. Fresh strawberries open on the palate, shortcrust pastry, caramel chocolate and crisp apples. Long lingering finish, filled with pepper and cooking spices.
