  6. lincolnimp scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Inchgower and Teaninich are my two unsung single malts of the whisky world, this is excellent and just how I like my whisky.

    Old school class
    • Nose
      Nice nose, what I call old school Malt, earthy, some smoke, a little peat, rhubarb & plum, thick cut dark orange marmalade with a little fruit cake & marzipan. Glorious stuff.
    • Taste
      Thick, oily and waxy with some fruit punch and hints of cigar smoke. There is a good dose of peat in there along with marmalade again and a few grassy notes
    • Finish
      Long, syrupy with a battle between the fruit and peat to the finish

  7. autowatch092 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Bright gold
    Nose: Banana, pineapple, honey, almonds, hints of mutmeg.
    Palate: Tropical fruit cocktail, almonds, vanilla, orange blossom honey, hints of ginger and nutmeg.
    Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly spicy.
    Overall: Very strong fruity aromas and a beautifully creamy mouthfel make this flawless whisky a delightful treat.
