Inchmurrin 18 Year Old (2013 version)
Tasted as part of The Dram Team (@thedramteam) tweet tasting in conjunction with The Whisky Wire (@thewhiskywire) this 2013 version of the Inchmurrin 18 was the first dram up.
The latest 2015 version has won many awards, this version didn’t receive as much praise.
If you simply look at my tasting notes, they are odd, obscure and probably quite off-putting, but it’s actually a really nice dram, just one that needs time to settle in the glass.
Thanks again to The Dram Team (@thedramteam) and The Whisky Wire (@thewhiskywire) for including me on the tasting.

I get a really strong smell of vinegar first, like the juice from a jar of pickled onions, oily and with toffee notes too, pickled onion monster munch, lemon peel
Malty and oaky, peppery up front, rubber bands and some pickled onion monster munch, ginger snaps
Fruity but with ginger
