Loch Lomond Inchmurrin Madeira Wood Finish
Loch Lomond // Highlands, Scotland
Inchmurrin Madeira Wood Finish was launched in 2015 as part of the distillery's Loch Lomond Island Collection. This expression benefits from double-maturation, first in American white oak barrels, followed by extra finishing in casks that previously aged Madeira wine. This non-chill-filtered single malt carries no age statement and is bottled at 46% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeAmerican White Oak and Madeira Wine
"Red wine and a tart or sour beer note reveal a strong Madeira influence on the nose. The palate offers rich, dark red fruits, with plums, dates, and raw honey, as well as raisins and nuttiness. The finish showcases dry oak and tannins, transitioning to more of a nutty-rancio profile, backed by orchard fruits such as pears and peaches, and lighter traces of the richer, darker fruits of the palate."
