Nose: Peach melba and quince jelly are joined by pink water biscuits and freshly baked shortbread. Aromats follow – rosewater, nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon – a sprinkle of nuts away from reminiscing about Baklava. The addition of water results in pineapple chunks and cola cubes together with a sprinkling of potpourri.

Taste: Pineapple upside down cake and sugar dusted pink grapefruit sits with malt loaf, dusty gingerbread men and golden syrup. The development takes a somewhat more herbal trajectory – dried parsley and mint leaves alongside hessian cloth and black pepper seasoning. Reduction brings out a juicier character – tinned mango, lychee alongside fresh peaches and mandarin segments – these sour in the mid-palate and sit alongside yet more patisserie – freshly baked bread rolls and a handful of oatcakes.

Finish: Medium to long in length with unexpected meatiness from roasted ham alongside fading ginger spicing and a touch of mentholated oakiness.

An eclectic Inchmurrin that delivers a selection of unexpected aromas and flavours alongside its fruit-driven core. Dilution feels notably beneficial here – it retains the overall structure but emphasises the fruity distillate whilst keeping the ex-bourbon cask well in check. 

Score: 84/100
