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

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Dusty, malty and a hint of smoke. Some perfume as well.

Taste

Bitter sweet. Floral and fruity flavours. Perfume again. Quite intense for 40% abv. Complex.

Finish

Salty and a bit spicy, medium long.

Comments

1980's botteling. Very decent whisky for a standard bottling.
