  1. ctu scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Despite his young age and the refill casks here is a multitude on the taste. And a grotesque sherry remind me a Ledaig / Tobermory line.
    • Nose
      Flowers, citruses, honey. Orange and unripe peach
    • Taste
      Gumy, sulfury, phosphorous sherry. Spices a lot. Forrest fruit basket
    • Finish
      Medium length, oaky, spicy

    N: Compacted lime & honey malt presented in a natural style. It’s a little nutty with a lambs lettuce note but there’s very little of that distillery profile i associate with Inchgower - namely a heavy, leathery dry-sherry maltiness.
    T: Starts with a funny, mild-funky arrival which wavers around. Generally it's a honeyed, mineral-mash with a mild fizz, steadily becoming a rather thin>weak malt that lacks coherence.
    F: Somewhat pokey [yet still weak], with notes of silicone, mildy-fresh aniseed and a tepid & dirty finish akin to some [agricole] rhum's>clairin.
    C: Not that convincing, and in context of a weekend of stunning blends and malts stretching three different centuries, this modern Inchgower is certainly lacking. Blog
