Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1999 McG

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.50 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Nose: malty, mashed, beery, fruity (green apples). Some licorice. Very classic. Mouth: mild and soft with the aroma, not too vigorous (46%?), Fruits, cereals.
    Finish: licorice, fruit, slightly tart, slightly mineral. Honest Malt.

  2. GuyIncognito scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Not bad at all, could have tolerated a few more years in the barrel that was quite inactive for my taste. But works very round and extremely tasty (especially for the age). With a few years more on the back and the resulting gain in wood / spice flavors that would be a great part.
    • Nose
      sweet raisins clearly a sherry barrel but rather subtle (refill?), dry clay note / earthy, plum
    • Taste
      Caramel, creamy mouthfeel with time drier development of sherry flavors, milk chocolate, figs
    • Finish
      Milk and caramel (has some of caramel cream candy), gingerbread spices, approach of wood

  3. Sir Provenance did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Original Tasting NotesOpens with an earthy, rich quality plus sweet spices and a dry sherried character. The palate opens sweetly then runs to a drier, mouth coating character with caramelised nuts and chewy liquorice.The finish is medium long, lightly spiced (dry) and tails to a warming cough drop quality.
