Inchgower 25 yo 1980/2005 (55.8%, Whisky Tales, cask #14156, 324 bottles) Star5.jpg Colour: mahogany with reddish hues. Nose: a beautiful sherry right at the start, with lots of chocolate and coffee as well as a beautiful smokiness. Truckloads of all kinds of roasted nuts, old rancio, very old dry white wine (Burgundy, with its toastiness). No excessive sweetness, no clumsiness and no heaviness. Goes on with hints of orange liqueur, linseed oil… Another beautiful sherry, very elegant, very straight. Almost perfect. Mouth: a slightly sweeter start but it’s not short of ‘rectitude’. Also lots of pepper and salt. Develops on cocoa, coffee, bread crust, raisins, roasted nuts again… Gets more and more chocolaty, with a beautiful dryness. Not much development but it’s so beautifully coherent that that’s not a problem – at all. Very long and bold finish on raisins, oloroso and rum plus, again, lots of salt. Just excellent again: 92 points.

Taste

Ein vollmundiger, öliger Malt mit einer Vielzahl an Aromen. Sie finden in dem Whisky eine tolle Sherrynote, die den Whisky aber nicht erschlägt. Nach eingen Minuten entfalten sich dunkle Schokolade, Orange, Honig und eine ganz leichte Brise Salz.

Finish

Ein warmer und unendlich lang scheinender Abgang rundet dieses Geschmackserlebnis angemessen ab.
