Au nez:
l'alcool de suite qui inonde les cavités,sans pour autant "brûler",ça inaugure qq de fort;puis le coté herbeux,les fruits(la poire!)apparaissent,enfin un boisé intense,et un retour de chocolat,là chapeau bas,mon 2e pêché mignon!
En bouche:
un coté médicament "camphré",liquoreux(fruits murs ou séchés),une chaleur dans la bouche et le coté boisé qui ressort!
En finale:
ce coté boisé qui ressort,puis la vieille prune,les noyaux (amandes),une finale longue,et très chaleureuse!

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

Comments

Not the best inchower I have had but worth trying.

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.

Comments

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.

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy.

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.

Comments

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.

Inchgower for me is always something special, unexpected. This time it's that again.
