  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very complex and nice Inchgower. Good balance between fruit and oak. If you would tell me that this was matured on a bourbon cask I would believe it.
    • Nose
      Lots of flavours. Fresh sweet barley. Melon, organges and exotic fruits but also shoe polish. Very complex nose whice develops through time.
    • Taste
      Warm mouthfeel, very smooth and sweet. Yellow fruit and orange peel. Nice oakiness. Later on more bitterness. Not a trace of sherry though!
    • Finish
      Long. Some pepper.

    Brilliant stuff, Inchgower at its best.

    Why this distillery is not higher on peoples lists is a mystery to me.
    • Nose
      Old school Speysider, with the Inchgower, meaty/toffee/buttery almost rum like smell, a style that you do not find very often which is why I rate this distillery so highly in general.

      Fantastic nose, like the F&F bottling but stronger and much better.

      Faint orange notes mixed with rich toffee, fruitcake, faint hints of ginger and cream.
    • Taste
      Wow, substantial and meaty sherried profile but not like a Mortlach meatiness, this is less gritty & more restrained.

      Creamy and thick on the palate, on caramel, fruitcake, caramel cake, faint hints of plum and orange liqueur.
    • Finish
      Good medium length, viscous, and chewey.

    Sherry Wood? Ah bon?
    • Nose
      Très floral, parfumé. Particulier. Je trouve le nez assez marqué par la résine voire quelque chose de plus chimique comme la glue , à la façon d'un bourbon. Alcool bien intégré . Jasmin, chèvrefeuille... C'est le printemps! Sève , boisé. Frais, clean, équilibré .
    • Taste
      Bouche agréable, veloutée peu agressive, bien vanillée et fruitée . Une petite touche de cuir mouillé
    • Finish
      Finale légèrement boisée , un peu amère .

      C'est élégant et subtil.

      Un dram très "féminin"

  6. ALouis scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very good malt, of a nice freshness, pity that it lacks a little complexity.
    • Nose
      very elegant and fresh, with floral, herbaceous and undergrowth notes in the background. then come sweeter notes of vanilla, honey and citrus.
    • Taste
      The attack is directly on lemon and bitter orange, superb freshness for a whisky of this age. The spices arrive then and brings a beautiful structure.
    • Finish
      The finish is long on lemon zest and spices.

  7. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It's good, it's round, it's well done; but it lacks a little punch and especially complexity to seduce me completely.
    • Nose
      Many cooked fruits tickle the nostrils. First, citrus fruit, then cooked apricot and orange. A little resin is felt later. Some stealthy hints of dried cereals.
      A nice and fresh nose, which does not succeed however to transport me completely.
    • Taste
      A wise roundness, dominated by the cooked fruits, invades the mouth. It's sweet and slightly sweet.
    • Finish
      A light oak immediately seals the mouth, at first without obscuring the taste of the cooked fruits; then it is necessary to stay.
