Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1982 Wy
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.23 points
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The finish is
somewhat long, warm and spicy.
