Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1974 WF

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.38 points

  1. ALouis scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very good malt, of a nice freshness, pity that it lacks a little complexity.
    • Nose
      very elegant and fresh, with floral, herbaceous and undergrowth notes in the background. then come sweeter notes of vanilla, honey and citrus.
    • Taste
      The attack is directly on lemon and bitter orange, superb freshness for a whisky of this age. The spices arrive then and brings a beautiful structure.
    • Finish
      The finish is long on lemon zest and spices.

  2. alectron scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Single dram note, 8 x Inchgower vertical tasting. 10_2012.
    Additional note on the palate.
    • Nose
      mineral, soap/washing powder/linen, pickled lemons / lemon chutney, nutmeg. Later turning somewhat butter-y. (91)
    • Taste
      big, very sweet, half baked bread, caramelized something, slight bitterness behind the huge sweetness, hard to define, loads going on (92)
      When the washing powder, which was perfectly pleasant in the nose makes it into the palate, which seems to happen when had by itself/first dram & without letting it breathe: (78)
    • Finish
      malty, honey, vanilla, fruity beeswax, fresh plums & figs. (91)
