    Very nice missed malts. Difficult to access. But with a little patience is revealed.
    • Nose
      89 89
      A nice dose of alcohol despite the 55.6%.
      Green wood, vanilla, pear, apricot.
      Solvent. Licorice. Pineapple rind.
      Eucalyptus. Lemon.
      It's pretty hard to peel.

      In the mouth we still smell a lot of alcohol.
      Solvent, wax, paint.
      Apricot, peach, pear, quince. A bit of rubber.
      Drain oil, tar. Old warehouse.
      A little dust.

    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

  10. 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.
