Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1965 DL
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.21 points
- [January, 2008] Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 411 that I bought for 177 Euro in November, 2007.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5. My notes simply state "a sensational sherry monster".
- A belter! The nose is wonderful. Would have been a 92, but the taste could have been a bit more full and there are no half-points here, so... The DL Platinum series is of outstanding quality with these old sherries, the only downside are the current astronomical prices.
Jägermeister, not quite so sweet but as herbal, cafe latte, a delicious sweet oak, anise, sweet, strong sherry, rumraisin, liquer fondant, very much in the same space as old sherry Glendronach/Benriach from the 70's. This impression strengthens with water. Opens up also somewhat Granny Smithy: the oak here is really delicious.
Sweet and herbal, caraway, Jägermeister, sweet coffee, raisin, dry date, cigar, leather. Actually all the classsic good sherriness. A very nice maple syrupy -side, raw cane sugar.
Rowan-candy, chocolate, sweet coffee.

- Absolutely fantastic
Nose is dominated by dark fruits like dates, figs and raisins combined with dark chocolate and coffey All in a very elegant mixture with Oak and wood
Wow, Taste comes intense with an explosion of Sherry dominated tones followed by growing spices and woody tannins.
Medium long with fading spices, sherry tones and a balanced woody finish
