Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1999 DoD

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.57 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2017/09/26/bottle-polishing-single-casks/

    N: Butter-honey>butterscotch, rum n raisin and sherried sugars. The last dram of the bottle reinforces the distillate-led drive and a slight oriental umami (tamari/sweet-meaty/sweet-sugared shiitake) with a creamy, fresh-green [lettuce) maltiness. 
    T: Comes in spirity=creamy. Flavour-wise, this is all about the malty raisin capture just like the DL sherry cask #8793. Grab as many of those raisins as fast as you can as they don’t hang around too long. More sweet rum n raisin with some firm waxiness also - taste & mouthfeel. Desirable sweet-oat biscuit base on development.
    F: Nicely waxy & malty with a subtle porridgy>biscuit finish and some slightly off=key witch hazel notes at the death.
    C: All-sorts to analyse here. Sits happily in the 85 score zone.Scores a B-

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N: Distillate driven, creamy maltiness with a slight oriental umami.
    T: Raisin distillate and a slight pepperiness
    F: Some heat still, falling in-between pepper & ginger with more sweet raisiny distillate. Thin maltiness
    C: Plenty of [single cask] Inchgower’s from the independents like these on the market right now, which is a good thing.
