    At nose:
    alcohol in a row that floods the cavities, without "burning", it inaugurates some strong, then the grassy side, the fruits (the pear!) appear, finally an intense woody, and a return of chocolate, there hat down, my 2nd sinful cute!
    In mouth:
    a drug side "camphor", sweet (dried or dried fruit), a warmth in the mouth and the woody side that stands out!
    this woody side that stands out, then the old plum, the kernels (almonds), a long finish, and very warm!

    Not the best inchower I have had but worth trying.
    • Nose
      At first I thought this smells a bit shitty so its not a great start. I actual think its caramel but the nose is far from expressive even with a lid on the glass.

      Some faint apple and pear notes but not a lot of anything else.
    • Taste
      Very strange but I do detect the Inchgower character like you get on the 14 year Flora & Fauna bottling.

      Dry, ginger cake and biscuit notes with some caramel thrown in.
    • Finish
      Medium length drying on caramel

    An extravagant whisky. Perhaps am I fooled by a virgin wood cocktail (which I’m quite unsure because of the slight bitterness at the end), but who cares, that’s too delightfull. So let’s enjoy.

    • Nose
      Once that the little ethery note has vanished, there’s nothing else but the pure pleasure of a high end malt that spent quite a while in a nice Bourbon cask. Vanilla marshmallow. Lollipop. Sponge cake largely soaked with rum. Then the spices arrive in strength, cinnamon first. Long pepper from Java, with its hot and woody side. Strawberry soup cooked with pepper and several vanilla-flavoured sugar in a nice Sauternes wine. Tinned pineapple. Quite a high strength (54%?), which balances aromas that announce a syrupy and sticky mouth. Reminds me of the very best 1972 Glengoynes.
    • Taste
      What can we add after this nose? That the mouth is extravagant all the same. First, it tingles like “Pop Rooks” powder. No kidding! Aromas are still there. The same ones. And in addition, a little lychee and mangosteen. It’s sticky, fruity, and spicy as anticipated. And even more powerful than expected. First sips anaesthetize the palate quite a bit, but this power balances a mouth that otherwise may well be a bit cloying.
    • Finish
      Long, tasty. OK, there’s a little woody bitterness at the end, but a couple of sips are enough to tame it.

    Uncut, this is a very
    pleasant whisky, but add a teaspoon of water and it becomes a feast. Inchgower
    is fast rising in my hit list. Around 115 EUR.
    • Nose
      Loads of grasses and
      flowers on the nose, but it seems tobe warmer than the Bladnoch Forum
      bottlings. The fruit seems stewed. Nice hint of woodsmoke and a good salty
      lining. Something that reminds me of farmer butter. The spices are very outspoken.
      Mint, ginger and liquorice. Hints of thyme. Powerful fella! After a while, some coconut
      milk and loads of vanilla emerge. Adding water brings out its herbal side.
    • Taste
      Despite the higher
      ABV, it is less alcoholic than the twins. Creamier, yes. The coconut milk
      returns. Very spicy on the palate. A veritable spice bomb. Curry, ginger,
      liquorice, pepper and nutmeg. Even some mustard seeds. Citrus is the fruity
      note, both lemon and lime. Pretty zesty too. Midpalate, the oak raises its
      voice. Nice bitterness. Towards the end, though, it turns pretty floral.
      Lavender? Parma violets? All within the acceptable, though. Adding water does
      make it a lot more pleasant, so I can only recommend diluting it.
    • Finish
      Very long finish, in
      which the oak and the silt do not offer any chance to the fruit.

    Inchgower for me is always something special, unexpected. This time it's that again. 
    • Nose
      Round, sharp, oak, some cereal notes.
    • Taste
      Intense, slightly soapy and also perfume, acetone. Unusual, but very good though.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, mellow, sweet.
