    Overall:
    A really interesting Independent Bottling.
    This Inchgower doesn't try to be liked by everybody.It 's rough around the edges combining maritime and roasted Aromas and Flavours.
    It's not a masterpiece, but it's unique and not like any other Malt Whisky i had before.

    A malty and spicy dram with a sweet undertone. Soft and light with an oak spice backbone.

      Malt, red fruit, honey, light citrus.

      Soft, light, and oily arrival. Malt, honey, red fruit. Accelerating spice adds depth.

      Soft finish fades quickly to spice and watery honey.
