Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 12-year-old

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.48 points

  1. matts scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Tasted at the Interwhisky 2018: Despite the low alcohol strength a great, damn creamy-fruity and intense standard with lots of orange, oak and vanilla. If that still existed ...

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Delicate frangipane on the nose, but that's about it. Not very rich but very nice nonetheless. In the mouth, OBE to death. Fade even if a little too small. Extremely drinkable.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  6. darren918jp scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    This bottling represents a quality classical profile, and should be sought out as such. 

    The nose doesn't offer up much, but there is a little citrus that comes through the fairly pronounced whisky pungency--for 40%--if you give it a minute or 10 to breath.There is a slight sourness from the oak that is winningly overtaken by a fruit burst in the fireworks of the finish. A nice summer dram, even in the winter.

  8. lincolnimp scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Worth getting and better than the later bottlings.
    • Nose
      Honeycomb, honey, crunchie bars, slight menthol, quite powerful for 40%.
    • Taste
      Initially sharp and a little thin but then there is a wave of honeyed sweetness, slightly drying.
    • Finish
      Medium length on sweet honey with a slight bitterness.

  9. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Upfront it smells like a caramel rich, old style blend but as it opens up theres more on offer. Sweet mint, fruit sponge, lemon drizzle cake, unspecific fragrant spices… seems as if theres more there but there is a swamped confusion here. Certainly far more interesting and pleasant than i expected.
    T: A fruity and juicy arrival with lots of bitter wood developing before a bold creamy maltiness envelops.
    F: Ovaltine, coffee, caramel fresh with the bitter wood lingering and giving the caramel a run for its money.
    C: Having recently tried Cardhu 12 WB that Ralfy [justifiably] calls the ‘maltiest malt’, for me this one takes that title. I didn’t hold much hope for this malt initially but i ended up really enjoying it, relatively speaking.

    Scores a C

  10. Feusi scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    The nose is very pleasant, fresh, spicy and floral. To drink, next to the malty sweetness bitter herbs come to the fore. In the medium-long finish stay again the bitter notes, some wood. A bit like straw pickled in water, papery and dry.
