  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Inchgower 35 yo 1966/2001 (67.5%, Scotch Malt Whisky Society, #18.15, 'curry powder and dark rum')
    That’s right my friend, thirty-five years of age and a whopping 67.5%
    vol. A kind of record, I guess. Was the cask stored right under the
    roof? Filled at 70% vol.? Was it totally watertight? All of that? In any
    case, wish me luck… Colour: dark red amber. Nose: good one, this is
    rum. I’m serious, this baby noses just like an old Port Mourant or
    something. Now I get it, this cask was matured in Guyana! But it’s so
    strong that I don’t think it’s quite safe to ‘deep nose’ it, so… With
    water: the beast became as meek as a lamb. Cigarette tobacco, earl grey
    tea, a touch of plasticine, raisins, fresh mint, celery, lemongrass…
    It’s almost gentle! Mouth (neat): sweet Vishnu, what a powerhouse!
    English-style rum, check, curry powder, check, polished wood, check,
    tar, check, liquorice, check, punch in your face, check… With (a lot of)
    water: almost perfect. Same aromas as in the nose when reduced,
    tobacco, teas, herbs, dried fruits, a little aniseed… Granted, the
    sherry was big, and I doubt the distillate has much to tell us, but it
    all works perfectly. Finish: I like finishes where fresh fruits take
    over, which is the case here. Oranges, lemons, maybe one or two green
    grapes… More cocoa powder and bitter chocolate in the aftertaste.
    Comments: no it isn’t absolutely perfect, but that was close. Great
    uebermonster - and what a ride! SGP:661 - 89 points.
