Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1974 TI
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.25 points
- WITH WATER.
The nose is much more expressive and the honey is evident. On the palate there is honey and menthol but do not add too much water, only a little is needed.
I much preferred this neat and rate is as a 90+ malt neat.
Very enjoyable but very difficult to get hold of now. What a shame there were only 42 bottles.
Slight Orange, honey, cola cubes, vanilla, pecan nuts, Rum & Raisin ice cream.
Smooth, warming, turkish delight (the light coloured ones in white icing powder), honeyed, white marshmallows and slight orange like on the nose.
Smooth,honeyed, warming and long.
- A good complex whisky that requires a few drops of water to fully appreciate it.
The alcohol is controlled, no aggressiveness on the nose. Fragrant nose on dried fruits, candied fruits and spices. The nose then evolves towards vinous notes, yellow fruits and apricot. On the 2nd nose we have eucalyptus and the fruits are more mature. After adding water, we are more about vanilla and exotic fruits.
In the mouth, alcohol is more present. The attack is on spices, chocolate and apricot. After adding water, the texture is oily and the mouth evolves towards honey, dates and some notes of mango in the background.
Average final rather greedy on blackberry jam.
- A oily fruity whisky but at cask strength some "tones" wat the background. After dilution to about 46%, much better.
- An inchgower with 2 faces: a very fruity / waxy nose, complex as I like them and a mouth / finish more spicy than fruity ... I like the 2 ...
A very nice version of this distillery.
Nose: superb first nose vanilla and fruity (melon, apple, pear), a touch of exoticism, quite fresh and sweet despite its voltage ... after a few minutes the wax and honey arrive but still well melted and integrated with the fruit. ..I'm a nose that I often find in some old Glen grant or longmorn ... Really very pleasant and evolutive ...
Palate: Warmer and less fruity than the nose, more woody and spicy, clove, more vegetal too.
Final: very pleasant, in perfect harmony with the mouth, spicy, waxy and less fruity than the nose ... apart from the pear alcohol which remains from end to end ...
Soften with a little water, but I prefer it without, I still like the heat of the spices ...
- Very good whisky. I do not feel that ventilation has succeeded.
It seemed to me much better at the opening of the sample.
A fruity touch
