The Inchmurrin range is currently quite compact. It consists of just two age statements - 12 and 18 year old alongside an NAS in the form of Inchmurrin Madeira Wood Finish. The 12 year old is composed of three different cask types – ex-bourbon, refill and recharred and is bottled at 46% ABV.

Loch Lomond’s heavily peated ‘Croftengea’ is more often utilised as a blending component than it is a single malt. I can find only 48 single malt examples of it on WhiskyBase and the Society have bottled 21 of these. Not seen on the Society’s outturn list for quite some years, this example also been subjected to a slightly unusual maturation, having spent four years in an ex-bourbon barrel before being transferred for some 11 years into a 2nd fill sherry cask – tired ex-bourbon? a leaky original cask? or just an inspired re-rack? Light Peated profile.

A new SMWS bottling, this Inchmoan from Loch Lomond spent 15 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead and then was finished for an additional year in a 1st fill Sauternes cask. It’s almost red in hue. Sweet, Fruity & Mellow profile.

The Inchmurrin range received a welcome rebranding in 2017. Rather strangely, the old branding (which featured screen printed scenes of a mountainous forest) decided to go down the route of becoming increasingly opaque with age. Thus, you could see what was inside your bottle of 12 year old Inchmurrin, but by the time you got to 21 year old, there was nothing to see at all – the glass was completely black and impervious. 2017 brought new style branding across the Loch Lomond range – these bottlings look much more like whisky now (straight-forward, modern and tradition), rather than vodka or over-priced water.
