    So today I opened the Inchgower 14 yo, and lo and behold, the first impression in the glass is: smokey and very alcoholic.
    So let it sit for 20 minutes...

      After about 20 minutes, floral notes also appear behind the smoke.
      But so subtle that they are largely covered by smoke and alcohol.
      After further minutes then some peppery seasoning and a little honey.
      A bit of heather peat rounds everything off.
    • Taste

      I'm already used to some cask-strength bottlings, but this one seems very alcoholic to me despite "only" 51.4%.
      The announced summer notes are lost in the smoke.
      I like Islay whiskys very much, but here I have the impression that the original Inchgower is a bit too laff, so that it was agreed to finish it in Islay casks.
      You can get a good Islay whisky here for under €50, which is great in and of itself, but I don't find the Inchgower.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish is quite long with salty liquorice and peat smoke.
      I like it.
