    Interesting. There are a few strange notes included. Fruity, more gummy bears, but also somehow mushrooms. Very strange. But ultimately a false mark

    Attractive Speysider
    that surprised me in a positive way. It does need a bit of water though. It
    becomes the whisky. You can still find this for around 130 EUR (which is dirt
    cheap for this big guy, although it originally sold for half that).
    • Nose
      Grass, flowers, hay,
      potpourri. That is the nose of this Inchgower in a nutshell. Lemongrass! Then
      some apple peelings, kirsch and a wonderful trace of smoke. A touch alcoholic.
      Adding water makes it somewhat sweeter (dark sugar?) and more creamy. A bit of
      coconut milk, in fact. This one is off to a very good start.
    • Taste
      Nicely oily, but
      rather sharp on the spices. Ginger, pepper and even some curry. Big oak, too.
      Grapefruit. Tastes like salty plum liqueur. This does not exist of course. Nice
      balance between sweet and bitter and even salt. Quite complex. And wonderful.
    • Finish
      The finish is long
      with a lot of oak and a quite a bit of kitchen salt.

  8. Lafroy scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Nose gives strong alcoholic sense with relatively
      intensive hints of flowers. Possibly some melon and strong bourbon notes.
      Rather fruity and smooth.
    • Taste
      It starts with strong and wide sweetness
      with hints of peach, honey, flowers and watermelon. Sweetness lasts very long. Very
      complex and well balanced sweet-note whisky.
    • Finish
      Rather long, sweet and very smooth.

  9. hsmithjr scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Needs a bit of water to bring out the full character of this Inchgower.
    • Nose
      Honey and eucalyptus.  Ripe orchard fruit.  Mint?  New shoe polish. English toffee.  Dried wild flowers (narcissus, daisy).
    • Taste
      Honey again.  Vanilla and oak.  Caramel apples.  More oak.  Country biscuits.  Anise.
    • Finish
      Herbal and a bit malty.  Some citrus peels.  Sugar cane.

  10. gralson scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      dignified, at first lemon, later a banana, later some sweet syrup - possible, that cherry, toffee, "low" sweetness
    • Taste
      he is equaling the smell if isn't exceeding, unlike the smell at first sweet cherry, later faint slightly bitter taste along from light lemon, roughness of spices, pinching on the tongue,
    • Finish
      finish very balansec, would be liked longer, sweet bitterly dry
