Inchmurrin Madeira Wood Finish, 46% abv
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 sharing the characteristics which make this range beautifully unique.
Our Master Distiller Bill White selects individual casks matured exclusively in traditional American oak whisky barrels before marrying them together for a further maturation in casks that have previously been used for making Madeira wine. The Madeira wood finish enhances the orchard fruit character of peach and pear with marzipan and nutmeg coming to the fore, giving a dry nuttiness to the long, oak finish. Inchmurrin Madeira Wood Finish is non chill-filtered, to keep its distinctive character as nature intended.
