Inchgower 1998 - 2013, approx. 15 years, 46% alc., Refill Sherry Butt
Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail - Connoisserus Choice Series
Inchgower is the main ingredient in "Bell's Blend", single malt is mostly found by independent bottlers like Gordon & MacPhail. The most famous bottling is probably the 14-year-old from the series "Flora & Fauna". ...
Nose: Sherry, immediately but not intrusive. Sultanas and apples. Then there are dark green limes. Unfortunately, he is not much deeper.
Palate: Spicy and sweet, but without the expected fruit. The oak is already quite noticeable. At the end chocolate and cappuccino.
Finish: Surprising. Only gently, then swells and says goodbye with spicy oak notes.
Conclusion: Many nuances, so I can not quite judge him yet. The nose is somewhat flat, palate and finish know to surprise. If you did not have Inchgower in your glass, you should take a look at this bottling.
