    Tasted early on in an evening of nothing but 30+ year old whisky. Enjoyable for it's place in the lineup.

    Empty Glass:  The salty brine sort of comes up here but is
    subdued by huge butter toffee notes.  There is a rich and almost silky
    malt note in the dregs.

    Not quite my cup of tea, I found it very floral and quite a bit of
    roasted nuts.  The finish almost made it seem much younger than it
    actually was, almost half the age.  I can still see the appeal to this
    though as it is such a light and soft whisky.
    • Nose
      Soft perfume notes begetting white floral notes and soft roasted
      almond.  As it develops, almond becomes toasted and a little brash. 
      Soft malt and sweet marzipan round out into a creamy sort of nose.  The
      floral seems vaguely 80's Bowmore.
    • Taste
      Milky soft and creamy, malt sweetness and more floaral notes.  There's n
      odd note in here though, maybe herbal almost sharp that I can't quite
      figure.  Mashed banana and sweet custard in the bottom, but the violet
      notes start to take over the mid-palate.  Towards the end there is a
      very interesting chalky note that smooths it all out, and hints at a bit
      of salty dust.
    • Finish
      Sharp and prickly.  This is 30 years?  It's very lively as the wood
      spices come up and dominate the finish.  Creamy and chalky wood comes
      along and supports more custard notes but they take a back seat to some
      strong wood spices (coriander, cassia, mace and the like).

    It started off real
    good with a great nose. I dropped the ball on the palate by being somewhat
    perfumy. But in the end, it is quite a fun Inchgower. Around 150 EUR.
    • Nose
      Quite a nice nose!
      Potpourri, apple sauce, apple skins, pear syrup, yoghurt and… putty! But it
      works. It is nicely creamy and sweet, with a twist. A touch of candied sugar
      and marzipan, albeit in the background. Herbal side. Thyme? This
      is very pleasant indeed.
    • Taste
      It is oily on the
      palate. Very spicy. Ginger and… curry! Mustard seeds, even.
      Strange combination, but quite nice. It even turns a bit salty, which seems
      strange. The pears and almonds from the title? I think I taste them, but I
      mostly get plums. This is very much like a plum liqueur. Midpalate, it becomes
      a bit floral. Violets?
      Lavender? Damn, that’s a pity, because it starts to dominate.
    • Finish
      The finish is
      somewhat long, warm and spicy.
