Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 12-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points
- Intense, spicy Speysider. A little old-fashioned, but I like that.
- Very nice, different then the 12y old's from the 70's
Sherry and fruit
Light, floral, sweet
Peardrops, spicy, slightly warming.
- N: Fruity, meaty, tomatoey - Lowlands style with watermelon juice, a touch of slightly fermented orange juice, ripe bananas, oily leather, coal, gritty and caramel woody notes. Very good.
T: Another malty 12yo Inchgower - malty, fruity salivating sweetness to start leading straight into a moorish sweet, honeyed creamy maltiness with herbal wood spices. Theres very little movement with this 12yo but what it delivers is more than sufficient to satisfy most palates.
F: Malty fresh with the caramel far less intrusive than the ‘De Luxe’ 12yo WB. A hint of smoke with oodles of herbal, vanilla and lime cream conclude this delicious Speysider.
C: Rather refined with a very fine nose, palate and finish although i do miss the simple Ovaltine force of the ‘De Luxe’. Either way, this is a fine expression.
Scores a B
- 1980's botteling. Very decent whisky for a standard bottling.
Dusty, malty and a hint of smoke. Some perfume as well.
Bitter sweet. Floral and fruity flavours. Perfume again. Quite intense for 40% abv. Complex.
Salty and a bit spicy, medium long.
- Spicy and fruity aroma, roasted chestnuts,
pear, cinnamon, cloves, floral honey, vanilla and dry hay. Marzipan

Long, sweet, fruity and spicy end.
