  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Indeed, I did have the chance to revisit this funny Inchgower again.

    N: Nose required more time. I briefly looked down the earthy/mineral [rabbit] hole and picked up flint, which normally heralds good omens. 
    T: Sulphury mineral. Better with water but even so. Quirky.
    F: Finishes with Christmas-y stuff.
    C: Despite those quirky sherried distractions there’s admirable complexity lurking underneath, but that sherry cask needs a good talking to.Scores a B-

    N: Drats, it’s sulphur & smoke and water won't rescue it.
    T: Super strong sulphured sherry and lots of iced confectionary. Water brings out the, well not sure what - it's a mishmash with some fizz too.
    F: Wine, sweet wine and chocolate malt.
    C: This is strange. Much of this dram has been Iost to the sulphur notes, yet it’s a single cask and I’m aware that this is considered by some well respected luminaries as spectacular [WF] - and i’m both a Serge and an Inchgower fan! OBE, contamination?

    Hopefully i’ll get to revisit it in a new light another time, but today i score it a C-
