Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1995 DL

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.69 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A solid, malty, fruity and flowery dram. Although, it's nice, it's didn't sweep my off my feet. 
    • Nose
      Inchgower is a cereal like malt, and this shows in the nose immediately. This is clearly a refill matured whisky, so it has enough distillery character to show.  It has ample beefy malt, porridge, then the freshness of mint, and further fruitiness like raisins, but also tinned pear and apricot. Some vanilla of the wood and floral freesia complete this not overly complex, but pleasant nose.
    • Taste
      Fruitier than on the nose, with some nice esters. Pear, pineapple, and even lemon sherbet come to the foreground. Then the malt, not overly sweet, returns, with dried fruit, flowers and pepper and clove. Towards the end, it turns a little dry. Water helps to keep it a tad more rounded.
    • Finish
      Spicy with pepper and clove, then malty, and still some room for a vanilla ice cream with fruit style of freshness.

  2. ctu scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Interesting, divisive malt, complex, but not in a good balance.
    • Nose
      Floral. Spicy oak, coconut, vanilla, apple, honey and caramel, citrus.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Exotic fruits, malt, tannic oak, pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, fruity.
