    I really struggled with this one, there is a chemical/metallic taste that overshadowed everything, I found this one hard work even as an Inchgower fan, not a good cask selection in my view.

    Salt & Sweet

    The Inchgower Distillery in Bucky was built in 1871. Since 1936 it is an important part of the Bell’s blend, but other blenders are into this Speysider as well. Johnnie Walker and White Horse for example. As a single malt – officially at least – it hardly ever reaches the market. So let’s rejoice that independent bottlers service us from time to time – like with this sherry cask, bottled by the German company Malts of Scotland.

    Surprisingly green nose, I have to say. Next to some typical notes of caramel, oranges and sultanas, I get mostly plants, a spicy mix and broth. Pretty umami, in fact, making it somewhat hard to appreciate it on the nose.

    It’s a lot easier on the palate. Fruity and umami, spicy and warm. Allow me to add that I do not think this is an easy combination. It is salt and sweet at the same time, thus having a hard time reaching balance. Some earthy notes rife with white fruit and caramel on the one hand, Maggimix on the other. Takes some getting used to.

    The medium long finish offers more of the same, albeit nicely wrapped in a trace of woodsmoke.

    Difficult. I’m truly on the fence whether I like this or not. How schizophrenic is that? Around 80 EUR. Thx, Manny!
