Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 13-year-old
11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.09 points
- Smokey and ashy on the nose, which translates to the palate so it is no surprise that this bottling does not suit everyone.
Not typical for this distillery that is for sure.
- The strength of the barrel brings a full-bodied wine, but unfortunately it does not increase the richness of its flavor. Oak and sugar account for almost half of the taste.
White pepper, the stimulus of fresh oak board, honey, chestnut cake, white bread, vanilla, fruit jam, dried flowers (The wine reviews on wb all mentioned sherry, black question mark)
Caramel, slightly peach, apple, citrus and other fruits, fruit acid, white pepper, oak
N: This one starts with a big sweet-funk potency and water wont subdue its eagerness. Potency is the word, and maltiness – a glossy maltiness with sweet barley grasses, a little baking [sponge>pastry base], buttered peas & sea kale, sweetened button mushrooms, musk-y wood.
T: Edgy spirit, with a brash arrival. Water will temper things initially only for the pepper to make a scene later on. I found it needed 50/50 dilution for the malt to flow. Nothing profound here but if you have the inclination after this ‘work’, youll find some nice action.
F: So, with 50/50 theres some chocolate-y, fruity maltiness – whisky-like finish :]
C: Good yet needy. A reaffirmation of my love for this OTR distillery, given the subtle complexities that manage to exist in such astringent conditions.Scores a B
- Enthusiasm 3/5 (on two sips during a tasting evening)
Whisky n ° 1308
Pretty muscular on the sherry. A little spicy chocolate. Dried fruits. A little too sturdy for me.
Strong, burned, but it goes well.
