- Beautiful obe, herbal and citrusy with a slight hint of sweetness, another great dumpy
- From WF (Serge):
Inchgower 17 yo 1959/1977 (80° proof, Cadenhead dumpy) Colour: pale gold. Nose: starts much smokier, as expected, with some superb mineral notes, lots of lemon juice and something slightly metallic (nice here – old bottle effect). Goes on with some very fresh vegetal notes (fern), eucalyptus leaves, hints of tiger balm and keeps developing on apple skin and almond milk as well as lots of marzipan, fresh putty, resin, cold oven… A rather beautiful old, clean Inchgower, a great counterpoint to the heavily sherried ones. Mouth: a creamy start, smoky, earthy, leafy… Quite some peat now, lots of resin, eucalyptus sweets, mint and liquorice flavoured ones… Very, very phenolic. Goes on with wax, mint flavoured tea, hints of calvados… Gets very spicy after that (white pepper) and quite salty as well. The finish is rather long, smoky, herbal, citrusy and very bold. It’s an invasion! Just a great, old style whisky with quite some backbone. Which means 92 points.
- A very interesting old Inchgower. A real rollercoaster for the nose and mouth. Thanks Jeroen for the sample.
Hmm, again such an interesting nose of an old Inchgower. Industrial chemical and metalic notes (I like that!). But also freshness of wet grass and hay. Hints of smoke. Menthol as well.
Amazingly light and clean. Malty and flowery notes. Quite spicy as well (white pepper and ginger). Citrus fruit of lemon and grapefruit.
Long, bitter-sweet fruitiness. Liquorice but also some peat. Later on very minty (almost like Vicks pastilles). Complex.
