Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 46%
Inchmoan is one of the experimental distillery Loch Lomond's manifold spirit styles. Loch Lomond's range seems to be being simplified in the latest revamp, with the focus narrowing towards three main single malt styles - unpeated Inchmurrin, heavily-peated Inchmoan, and a medium-peated mingling of both, bottled simply as Loch Lomond.
Like its sister malt Inchmurrin, Loch Lomond's Inchmoan is made on the distillery's unusual straight neck pot stills that have rectifying plates in the neck, allowing a much purer, higher strength spirit to be produced. Combined with the distillery's long fermentation times, the result is a smoky, spicy single malt whisky.
This Inchmoan 12-year-old has been matured in both refill bourbon and recharred American oak casks and bottled at 46% to fully express the heavily-peated Inchmoan single malt style.
