Aroma : Although the Inchgower is very similar in appearance and age to the Dufftown of C & S, the two differ enormously. This Inchgower is stronger and immediately brings distinct aromas of fresh, juicy bread into the glass, paired with ginger spice. Despite the wine finish, it is not as sweet, less powdery as the Dufftown, with a dash of water it becomes a dry dust track. A paradox? Taste: quite strong, waxy, more prominent than the Dufftown, with grassy notes and unripe tobacco leaves. Here the youth makes itself noticeable with a slightly metallic taste, which, however, also gives it a certain kick. Resonance : medium to short Conclusion: This whisky also belongs to the category "Drink Whisky for in between", it is uncomplicated, but less lovely than the Dufftown, with a striking, pithy note. A good drink after sweaty work. Due to the rather small influence of the barrel, the basic character of the distillate is more pronounced than with first-fill bottlings. Here the Inchgower can score, it falls with its angularity something out of the ordinary.
Score: 79 (out of 100)
