1 of only 257 bottles from cask no. 5677This cask of Inchgower has been drawn from an American oak hogshead, and the colour is an attractive orange-gold. The first impression was of wax floor polish, immediately giving way to a jolly bowl of fruits (Chinese gooseberries, common gooseberries, orange peel), with wild roses (sweet briar, rolling tobacco). With water the nose becomes more waxy – now candles, with traces of oil or butter – and sweeter (tablet). The latter comes through strongly in the flavour, which is sweet to start, with a thick mouthfeel, drying pleasantly, with masculine, leathery, old flashioned tastes.
