Inchmurrin 2009 Manzanilla Single Cask
May’s whisky was exceptional in every sense. Aside from being the last remaining Scotch brand made exclusively on Lomond stills, it was finished in first-fill Manzanilla casks, a variety of sherry rarely used in whisky.United Kingdom
Nose Intense and almost creamy with dried fruits, raisins and vanilla. Even a touch of custard.
Palate Soft and sweet with green apple, candied orange peel and more raisins followed by salted caramel.
Finish Initially sweet with melted brown sugar and hazelnuts before the trademark Manzanilla dry saltiness comes through towards the end. Quite long and lingering, almost with the sensation of popping candy. Moreish.
Food Match Brie, don’t look any further. Grab a massive slab.
Age: 8 Years and 10 Months Old
Maturation: Matured in refill casks for seven years followed by a second 15 month maturation in first-fill Manzanilla sherry butts
