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.
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.
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.
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.
