Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1982 JW

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.56 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It's a very good whisky! It's fruity enough to be very enjoyable. The only thing that keeps this whisky away from a 90 score is that I find that the wood influence is a bit too much.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Colour: bunished
      Appearance: rather thick, but quick tears

      The nose is not bad, but both a tad restrained and overpowered by wood. It's not harsh, but just extreme woody like sniffing an unfilled cigar box. After a while, the mere wood influence weakens a little towards the direction of old Chesterfields, beeswax, pollen, malt and a lot of tropical fruit: peach, lychee, and mango. At the end there is a slight note of fresh coriander.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Also in the taste, the wood shows with vanilla and spices (next to the plain wood influence). Yet the fruit is present enough to balance this. Then there is fresh mint which lifts this whisky to a rather friendly and complex dram.
    • Finish

      Moderately long, a bit dry on ginger, certainly woody (but not harsh) and fruity (overripe tropical fruit).

  8. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Uh .... yes. Very complicated. Had nothing comparable. Unfortunately, the beast was nothing to me. But who is looking for something else .......
    • Nose
      Pickle water and furniture polish. Old oak drawer, which opens when opening, musty, older air. Sherry in the background and dark, overripe berry jelly. Somehow bitter and complicated. A wicked beast.
    • Taste
      Instant vinegar, old bitter oak with a little sherry. Could imagine that it tastes like soaking an old oak drawer with sherry and then licking it. Very spicy with pepper. A certain sweetness of berries is still coming.
    • Finish
      Long and very bitter. Then something very unusual happens. In the mouth comes from every corner a different taste. Sweetness, bitterness, spiciness and acidity. Everything then mixes and releases an incredible complexity. Oily mouthfeel.

  9. Truco63 did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Interesting and very complex, complex but also restrained;
    Interesting that the alcohol (54%) is not noticeable in the nose, is very well involved. Blind Tasting a Sample from the Whisky Advent Calendar by Marco Bonn 2016
    • Nose
      no alcohol, toffee, red berry fruits, tanin, wood, herbs, some malt, milk chocolate after a while
    • Taste
      Powerful, easy drinking, red berry, (red wine?), Very light toffee, some wood, some herbs, slightly sherry, after a while milk chocolate, delicate dryness with some sweetness, a touch of bitterness
      With a little bit of water there will be little less, a bit more fruit
    • Finish
      Long, some wood, finally red berries, at the end of dark chocolate
