    The nose is quite floral but also has some sweet candy as well as seaweed aroma’s. The taste adds some bitter oak as well strong grassy notes. This is a strange symphony of flavors that somehow works and is just great to either puzzle apart or simply to enjoy for the unique thing it is. The let down is the low strength, at a higher proof this would blow the house down.

    Inchgower has an oddball style that you either love or hate - I love it.

    An idiosyncratic one. Extremely leafy, vegetal, and mineralic, with soft exotic "white" fruitiness. Glad to have tried it, but I wouldn't go for a whole bottle.

      Salad greens, celery, spinach, dried grasses and herbs, hay, chalk, parched oak. The fruits only show once you've taken the first sip.
    • Taste

      Soft is understating it. Feels like the mildest 43% I've tasted yet. Interestingly and unexpectedly fruity though, with the pulp of pears, pineapples and guavas. Very softly drying, with a nicely mineralic feel at the end.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Mildly astringent, with a sprinkling of white pepper, sweet exotic fruit pulp (see above) and limestone.

    Color: yellow gold

    I have no idea how the sulfur gets in the nose, quite penetrative. Basic malt whisky with a little old style that I would like to try with more age.
    • Nose
      Smells young at first, musty, no sherry and still sulphurous, asparagus pee, unripe plums, actually a little malt in the background. Burning matches and dry wood chips. After the first sip of dark, malty, a few pickled plums, block malt. Boiled apples, vanilla sauce.
    • Taste
      For 43% surprisingly oily, butter, malt beer, for 14 years a good pile of old oak. Nutmeg, orange peel, green apples.
    • Finish
      Rather short, clearly bitter. Grassy, straw, shoe polish.

    sample.

    It seems this one came from a rather dark batch. Very nice actually.
    • Nose
      Rather resinous, peppery and spicy. Fruity hints here and there but this is more on the savoury side. Slightly herbal and there is a hint of sulphur in there, but it is so faint it can be ignored.
    • Taste
      Savoury arrival, this time the sulphur is a bit more prominent in the form of match sticks. Again spicy, some honey in between and overripe apples. Tiny bit harsh, and maybe a bit thin, but it is not all that bad. A certain dry freshness kicks in after a while.
    • Finish
      Medium long on overripe apples, caramel and some honey. Nice sirupy, kinda coffe-ish after taste.
