Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1980 AD
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.96 points
- [May, 2009] Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 112 Euro in April, 2007.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 90. My notes state a bold and rich "chewable" dark sherry profile that is very powerful.
- Plums, soaked prunes and oak, powerful Dram
Today I emptied the Bottle after 6 Years opening, and it´s still a powerful Dram from the old Days.What a Beauty!
- You'd better like your whisky dark, thick and chewy to enjoy this one.
Heavy sherry. Almost spoonable.Dark chocolate and prunes. Chinese salted dried plums. Burning damp bark. Surprisingly citrusy too. Crystallized oranges. Orange liqueur (Grand Marnier?) keeps it kind of vivid. Kind of...
Prunes galore. Strong coffee with a scoop of coffee ice cream and a splash of coffee liqueur. Cocoa beans. Sticks to each part of your palate. Drinkable (well... Sipable) neat, but a drop of water won't hurt. Pretty uncomplicated, but quite impressive.
Endless, with an obvious herbal bitterness.
