    Tasting Notes by WhiskyFun.com (August 29, 2014):

    Nose: we’re obviously in similar, if not identical territories, but this one’s both a little less fruity and a little more medicinal and even coastal, with obvious whiffs of iodine (and tincture of iodine.) Ex-old Laphroaig cask? I’m joking, it’s well known that Inchgower can be a little coastal. After all, the distillery’s a few blocks from the sea. With water: some neat and sweet vanilla coming out, drops of triple-sec…

    Mouth (neat): outstanding – and very similar to cask #6984, except that once again, this one has more menthol, cough medicine and ‘a saltiness’. Brilliant. With water: all great. Earthy tarty fruits and eucalyptus lozenges. This one will keep the doctor away around Christmas!

    Finish: long, medicinal and zesty, with an utterly perfect balance.

    Comments: as they say, great stuff. Just the right amount of oak influence – that is to say rather little.

    SGP:651 - 91 points.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Green notes of angelica root and gooseberries followed by single cream and elegant cedar wood tones.Palate: The power of this whisky is felt on the palate as it unleashes a torrent of flavour with burnt sugar and cookie dough chased down with greengages and black pepper.Finish: Angelica root and thyme at first but then become much spicier as the cask strength element takes hold.Overall: With almost thirty years of ageing and an abv in the mid-fifties this whisky would have little excuse to be lacking in flavour or quality, and thankfully it doesn't. This whisky is packed with green fruit, menthol and spice notes - very pleasing.

    • Nose
      perfumed, mineral, mothballs, slight parmamint note, menthol, artificial peach ester, (86)
    • Taste
      very very sweet, english candy-store, chalky, parmamints. (77) mellows out later on and perfume-y-ness less extreme/better balanced. (86)
    • Finish
      vanilla powder/flour, floral/potpouri. (78).
      later, some more interesting bitter-ish walnut notes come up and balance it out better (84)
