Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1977 CA

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.08 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This Inchgower has a complex nose, with some very interesting earthy notes. The taste and finish are good and balanced too, yet a tad more ordinary and simple. Still it's a whisky that I wouldn't mind having in my cabinet.

      Colour: burnished
      Appearance: very slow, thick legs (coats like syrup)

      I think it was matured in refill sherry, given the somewhat raw (but pleasant) impression that could very well come from the spirit. It's earthy and vegatel (olive oil, leaf, gravel, undergrowth, coffee) with dark fruit (very dry prune, extremely dried fig) until it's almost meaty (old leather) and almost (but not entirely) mouldy. Still there is a fresh note of orange, toffeed apple and spice (nutmeg).

      Medium bodied, rather rounded with a nice level of spice and hardly any bitter side. It's less earthy, making room for toffee and caramel, and apple pie. Not that there is no leafy impression at all, it's certainly there. Add to that freshly squeezed orange juice, prune, raisin and ginger.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium, a tad drying on ginger and numeg now, but pleasantly so. The dried fruit remains, and is accompanied by woody accents and a hint of leather.
