Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 2001 JE

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.75 points

  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Had this dram first during a blind taste event (Proef Olympics Ledendag 2) as the 1st dram (after the welcome dram), and later on re-evaluated a bit i had left in the sample bottle.

    quite easy and fruity dram. quite a clean spirit with quite some red and green apples. typical bourbon barrel influences such as banana and lemon (or lime?).

    Later on some  hints of white pepper and baked bread.

    on the mouth quite refreshing with some more sour notes, with some red peppers in the background.

    Finish medium long with peeled apples and grapes.

    The quite clean spirit profile made me think this was an young Arran on a bourbon barrel, well the bourbon part was correct... the other parts not so much.

  3. Achany scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Huge butter futch and caramel on the nose. In this would hold on that would have been a real incredible malt. On the palate it gets a little thin. Malt, oak, some vanilla and honey, a little spicey, all right but Not overly complex,
