An early Christmas present

IT’S only a few weeks until Christmas (OK, I’m getting excited a bit early) but it feels like a good time to start treating ourselves in the festive spirit.

One of the best things about Christmas is indulging in your favourite wine and spirits. What better time, then, to expand our whisky repertoire and ask him to try this 12-year-old dram from Inchmurrin, an island in Loch Lomand.

As I’m not a big whisky drinker myself and I’m almost five months pregnant it was up to my husband to take on the duties of giving this whisky a taste.

This single malt Scotch whisky is described as ” aged in hand selected bourbon, refill and re-charred casks and then married together to create a lighter whisky with grassy notes and floral hints of pear drops, crème caramel, soft fruits, vanilla and fudge,” which my husband really felt came though.

He commented on the smoothness if the whisky, and the wordiness that comes though from the aging of the whisky.

For a seasoned whisky drinker, he said it was a very easy to drink dram for a winter’s evening.
