Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1974 TWA
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.64 points
- Brilliant stuff, Inchgower at its best.
Why this distillery is not higher on peoples lists is a mystery to me.
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.
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.
Good medium length, viscous, and chewey.
- Sherry Wood? Ah bon?
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 .
Bouche agréable, veloutée peu agressive, bien vanillée et fruitée . Une petite touche de cuir mouillé
Finale légèrement boisée , un peu amère .
C'est élégant et subtil.
Un dram très "féminin"
- Very good malt, of a nice freshness, pity that it lacks a little complexity.
very elegant and fresh, with floral, herbaceous and undergrowth notes in the background. then come sweeter notes of vanilla, honey and citrus.
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.
The finish is long on lemon zest and spices.
- It's good, it's round, it's well done; but it lacks a little punch and especially complexity to seduce me completely.
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.
A wise roundness, dominated by the cooked fruits, invades the mouth. It's sweet and slightly sweet.
A light oak immediately seals the mouth, at first without obscuring the taste of the cooked fruits; then it is necessary to stay.
- 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.
Lots of flavours. Fresh sweet barley. Melon, organges and exotic fruits but also shoe polish. Very complex nose whice develops through time.
Warm mouthfeel, very smooth and sweet. Yellow fruit and orange peel. Nice oakiness. Later on more bitterness. Not a trace of sherry though!
Long. Some pepper.
