Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 14-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.00 points

  1. carstenschulze82 scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    First of all:
    My own grading system goes from 1 to 10 and after a long deliberation, it breaks into WB points:
    48 - 57 - 65 - 72 - 78 - 83 - 87 - 90 - 93 - 95

    I give the INCHGOWER 14 from the Flora & Fauna series 4 out of 10 points.

    4 points are: You certainly do not have to try it, but you can still drink it.
    In my view, in no case a buy recommendation.
    • Nose
      After pouring the dram from the fresh opened bottles, I smell a lot of citrus and a significant portion of vanilla sweetness. The alcohol draws despite 43% vol. strong through the nose, but in my view with just opened bottles very common.
      15 minutes later, the alcohol is much less noticeable. The citrus note remains strong and I like it unexpectedly well. The vanilla has changed into a very light, powdery sweetness in the background. I feel like I also smell a hint of nutmeg. But that could just be the wood of the barrel.
      The nose is very nice.
    • Taste
      Sweet, soft, creamy, but unfortunately also thin in taste. A hint of bitterness is recognizable.
      The second sip of the bitterness for a short moment still seems to be a very immature pear.
    • Finish
      Despite the 14 years, (probably) multiple used bourbon barrels often seem to me like the famous, metallic youth. So here too. Instead of metallic, I could also get involved in very mineral. Then the finish fades very fast and the tongue is somehow furry.

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    rather unspectacular bourbon barrel (presumably) - not quite my taste, tastes like a mixture of Speyburn 12 and Springbank 10 - if you give it time benefits the nose, which I like here the best.
    • Nose
      At first slightly metallic bitter on the nose, slightly sourish with light wine notes, citrus, lime, canned pineapple, apples
    • Taste
      sweet and sour - white gummy bears with harsh toasty aromas, cereals, spicy, mineral, viscous - nice creamy mouthfeel
    • Finish
      flat and quite short, slightly dry, slightly bitter - sourish
