    Intense, spicy Speysider. A little old-fashioned, but I like that.

  6. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    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

  7. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

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