Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
Inchgower 1985 rolf kaspar bottling 19 YEARS OLD SPEYSIDE 60.7 % VOL.1 of only 227 bottles from cask no. 5664 specially bottled for Rolf Kaspar GmbH, Limburg 2005Inchgower The distillery was built in 1871 in an area renowned for illicit distilling. Although it is described as a Speyside, it is a long way from the region on the Moray Firth, near the fishing port of Buckie. A rich orange-gold colour, you could easily believe that this was from a sherry cask. However, the nose tells a different story. Thick, almost industrial floor wax reminiscent of well-polished old floors, gives way to tangy orange peel and sweet coconut. There are also traces of briar wood and tobacco pouches. With water, more wax, but much sweeter. Moorish marzipan flavours on the palate last for an eternity, with a dash of orange marmalade and old-fashioned “medicine bag” leather to finish.
