  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Great part. I like such extreme expressions. He is really delicious.
    • Nose
      Leathery sherry, the brittle variant: leather, wood, coffee, the fruit can only be guessed at the beginning. Later, add a touch of toffee and a little effervescent powder.
    • Taste
      In the mouth then the full portion of menthol, wood, a subtle acid, you can also say fermented fruits.
    • Finish
      strong, woody, menthol, slightly bitter, astringent, coffee and a little toffee.

    Wonderful. Classic example of a sherry whisky, well-made without unwanted complexity that distracts from its deep, rich taste. Full tasting note and photo at http://yummywhisky.com/2018/05/03/tasting-note-inchgower-1980-26-year-old-signatory-vintage/
    • Nose
      Rich on old sherry, raisins, orange peel, walnuts.
    • Taste
      Similar on the palate but stronger: Plenty of dried fruits, walnuts, oak.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet. Raisins and old oak.
