Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 09-year-old WhB

    • Nose
      88 88
      Clearly youthful, but very aromatic and pleasant; very fresh. Clear maltiness, dextrose, biscuit, vanilla, rhubarb, a little oak (which is also slightly dusty). Maybe a little woodruff. The alcohol is well integrated: no stinging, only light menthol freshness.

      Based on the nose, I would estimate the age of blind tasting to be 9 to 11 years. Maybe I would even guess the distillery right there. I got the biscuit note from most of the inchgowers I had in the jar.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Alcohol is also well integrated here. In any case, pure drinking is no problem for me. I taste: malt, rhubarb jam, glucose, some oak, but above all Japanese seaweed salad (wakame). Very clear. There is also a salty note. Also slightly meaty.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Sweet wakame salad and salt stay very long. Slightly meaty. Slightly malty. No unpleasant note of alcohol.

      Conclusion: In the nose still a fairly ordinary young malt, if clearly one of the better ones, also very intense and in no way closed. The positive surprise on the palate. Can't remember that I had a whisky that tasted like wakame salad. Is this the coastal area where the distillery is located?

      A clear recommendation among the young whiskys. Tastes good and interesting, no bad notes.

      PS. The pleasant aroma stays in the empty glass for a long time.
