Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1993
14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.53 points
- Bottle #538 has been stolen.
- Interesting sherry monster, magnificent aroma with a rather wide range of derivatives besides standard sherry; concentrated, syrupy taste and a pleasant sour-bitter finish, very harmoniously, very richly and deeply, and that is especially pleasing - somewhat beyond the sherry standard.
Open, dry, spicy oak, old furniture from the array, furniture varnish, stain, unsweetened prunes, at first the aroma is so concentrated that it already causes some sort of chemical associations, a little settled becomes more natural and harmonious; a lot of different raisins, pu er, metal sour, dried herbs, plum jam, pipe tobacco, dried apples, dried melon, light notes of dried tropical fruit.
Very thick, full, syrup of sherry and oak, peppery, prunes, strong lacquer notes, burnt biscuits, burnt caramel.
Spicy, peppery, oleaginous, sweet with oaky bitter notes, stout bitterness, prunes, pu eras, earth shades, furniture varnish.
- N: Sulphur, mint, raspberry and damp.
T: The sherry is big, the sulphur is big, and yet the ‘bigness’ is short lived. Everything is short lived.
F: Short lived and done.
C: Inchgower is almost exclusively matured in sherry casks but sometimes that comes at a price. I’m aware that other commentators who i respect highly, haven’t had the sulphur experience i’ve had with this cask bottling so i will endeavour to retry this at another time. Can sulphur compounds from the juice develop within the bottle?
For now, it scores a C[-]. Blog
- With Water
A few sulphur notes but the sherry is good quality, still a few nutty notes.
Water smoothes it out very well with a really lovely sweetness and some chocolate orange.
Very good and the sherry does not dominate.
Powerful and fruity with the sherry singing , I get figs, blackcurrant jam, dark raisins and like the 1985 TWA something metallic.
Some nutty notes after a time in the glass.
The sherry is vibrant and rich with dark plum, treacle tart, plain chocolate, rich fruit cake.
Seems to get stronger and more powerful with time in the glass.
Long, tightly compact flavours, the sherry is not overpowering which is really good.
