Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1985 AD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.13 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2008]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 73 Euro in October, 2008.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state an unpleasant chemical flavour in an otherwise nice dram.  Some of my friends liked it more...

  2. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    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.
