    Inchgower
    25 yo 1980/2005 (55.8%, Whisky Tales,
    cask #14156, 324 bottles)

    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.

    Notes by "WhiskyTales"
    • 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.
