Inchgower: 27 ans Rare Malts
Personal Comment
The nose is marked by hints of hazelnut, a touch of was and a light smoke smell. The nose is rather animal too, something like a dry dog playing in an apple cellar, the fruity aspect being quite present as well. In the palate, a very pleasant and complex impression of tastes going all over the place, from malted barley to citrus fruits through a whole flavours palette, from refined wood to bitterness of unripe walnuts through citrus fruit. Very amazing in the mouth. The finish is relatively short, with memories of malt and wood, or even coffee. Nice experience.
88/100
A nice nose pleasantly perfumed by nice sherry notes, some hints of plum jam with some slightly bitter nutty notes. A nice balance announcing a great whisky.
In the palate, a great smoothness with chocolate and cashew nuts notes, sherry and above all a very beautiful balance between all those flavours. Lots of pleasure.
The finish is pleasantly long with a mix of chocolate notes, walnut and some discrete fruity hints, just like during the nosing, plum jam.
A great whisky.

Personal Comment
Colour: Pale gold
The nose is quite mesmerizing, combining notes of biscuit, ripe fruit and dried fruit, dates, nuts. Floral notes come later, giving the whisky a nice complexity while maintaining a fine balance.
Leaving him some time, floral notes take over and new more fruity ones appear.
The mouth presents also an admirable complexity, combining a touch of bitterness (dried fruit, nuts, dates) with notes of cooked plums. So a nice contrast between bitterness and freshness, complex fruity but very balanced notes, all of them are playing on the register of subtlety.
The finish is pleasantly long and subtle. Here also notes slightly tinged with bitterness perfectly extend the pleasure of the mouth.


This Inchgower is just beautiful ...

Commentaire de Serge Valentin
Nose: vinous, dried mushrooms, old cellar, a little menthol. Rather complex.
Very pretty mouth, rich, nervous, spicy and fruity. Mandarin oranges, raisins, honeydew, bitter orange, coffee and kirsch.
Long finish, more malty. Bitter almonds. A complex and powerful whisky for his age.

Probably refill sherry. The bitterness may scare some, but I really like.

Commentaire deJean-Michel
Color: Yellow copper.
Nose: Quite some toffee signing these young Sherry that they wanted to give character in record time, and thus lack of character. Some worship it, it annoys me . But let's be fair : here , proper breathing is beneficial. The cheap caramel escapes in favor of roasted pineapple notes ... caramel (still ...) that you can ask for the dessert in Chinese restaurants , you know what I mean? A little sour note is good. Gingerbread , also (clove and anise), and a discreet sulphurous touch that pleases me in this case. Finally, it will eventually seduce me , that nose ...
Palate: Good news: the cheap caramel has almost disappeared. Water of life (eau-de-vie) now dominates . "Kirschy" and drier than the nose could suggest, still with a note of roasted pineapple. A beautiful power, fat and chewy, but perhaps a little lack of finesse.
Finish: Long , carried by a fine woody bitterness, it can evoke certain agricultural rums.
Comment: An Inchgower lacking a bit of finesse and aromatic richness for my taste. One can be seduced, but other independent bottlers have produced some quite more seductive ones. A relative disappointment .
84/100
Commentaire deWhiskyWalker
Nose: A first woodworking shop impression: sawn and heated timber, rather dry with notes of toasted hazelnuts and toast crust it swells slightly at the opening notes of cinnamon and perry.
Taste: Powerful and rather vinous it is marked by notes of raisins, prunes and cinnamon cooked apples with a slight bitterness "à la Campari Orange".
Finish: Long, lingering and quite warm it extends onnotes of Rancio with a retro-olfaction that balances between Vino Santo and the country ratafià.
Balance: As our friends in the pub "Bellevue Kriek would say "The more you taste it the better it will tastes!."
89/100
Commentaire dePiazzolla
Nose: burnt wood not far from sulfur (match from being rubbed). Developes on discrete fresher and fruitier notes after aeration. Marzipan. Too typed / unbalanced for me.
Mouth less pronounced than the nose and that's good! So far difficult to discriminate even if the result is nice. Dried fruit. Nice mix, but still not expressive enough in my opinion.
Final average and a little dry notes of nuts.
Conclusion: A good malt but I find unattractive nose. More mouth still lacks distinction. A little too tired cask?

The colour is pale yellow, and the nose is malted and spicy (pepper) and reveals a orange zest hint.
Fresh and elegant, it develops on sweet camphor and vegetal (chlorophyll) touches.
The full and bodied mouth confirms the nose, with malt and pepper hints.
The finish reveals the bitterness of barley.

Personal Comment
The style of Inchgower is rather different of this of most other whiskies from that area, because of its harder and more salted character. The whisky is rather interesting, but should be reserved to people who are initiated. I would not recommend it, unless for people who like less round and aromatic whiskies. The area offers such a lot of lovely malts...
70/100
A second tasting came to the same conclusion. It is a bottling of an independent bottler (one of the most famous), and one can not judge of the quality of the distillery. It is just a sample of the production, a deceiving sample... The character, more acid as spicy of this whisky who does not have the traditional complexity of malts from the area makes that this bottling is not too interesting, according to myself.
70/100
The nose is marked by hints of cut grass (hay) and a touch of citrus fruit (orange) and spices. In the palate, the orange is rather present, on a malty background. A kind of monotony as well, despite the nice peppery hints. The finish is some peppery as wall, and not too long.

Personal Comment
No doubt, this is really a sherry monster. A very perfumed nose clearly marked by sherry letting some nice fine woody hints show through. What a perfume... The mouth is wonderfully smooth and complex, with now fresh woody hints, now slightly acid touches, with the constant presence of sherry which is an undoubtedly plus point. What a palate... The lingering finish is sherryish as well and the woody hints are nicely complex too. What a finish...

Personal Comment
The first nose is characterised by lots of fruit smells. Just happiness. Fruits, some wax notes, a touch of smoke and you have the main ingredients of the complexity of this wonderful nose.
The mouth is at least as interesting as the nose was with its clear fruit notes, cough drop with however a great smoothness.
Nice lingering and warm fruity finish.
A wonderful whisky.

The nose is clearly marked by pleasant chocolate and sherry notes and hints of coffee.
The mouth is especially smooth, with the same milk chocolate notes and this nice presence of sweet sherry.
The finish is particularly long. Very marked by sherry smoothness and those very nice coffee with milk notes.

Personal Comment

Color: Gold
The nose is discreet but nevertheless reveals beautiful notes of fruit mixed with notes of slightly bitter almond notes. With aeration, the nose asserts itself progressively.
The bitterness is immediately present in the mouth, but makes room quickly to very nice fruity notes, and eventually form a pleasantly uniform, perfectly balanced whole. The mouth is exceptionally rich.
The finish is long and pleasant, prolonging perfectly the mouth. Here too, the beautiful and slightly bitter taste is present, while maintaining a beautiful memory of the fruit.

Personal Comment

Color: Gold
A lovely fresh nose, with nice fruit notes, lush tropical fruits, cassis, blackberries, spices and pepper. A hint of gentian which further increases the range of tastes already extensive. A nose of remarkable complexity. All in a very nice balance. A nose that only gives pleasure. If the rest is up we have here is a whisky of exceptional quality.
The same exotic complexity is present in the mouth. Exotic fruits in bulk. A nice fresh acidity, green mango, fruit of Cythera, a hint of gentian, pepper, spices. An explosion of flavors. Absolutely wonderful. Everything is perfectly balanced. A matching nose and mouth like we would like to see more often.
The fun continues with a long lingering finish which is a perfect extension of the mouth.
This is one of the best whiskies I've had the opportunity to drink lately.

Comment by Mars
Nose: exuberant fruits, ethanol, candy, cereal. After addition of water, becomes waxy with aromas of green apple.
Palate: Fruity, citrus (lime), mint. Alcohol is not perfectly integrated but it improves significantly after addition of water without the flavours suffering.
Appearance of coconut with aeration.
Final: Fruity, spicy, mint, bitter (green banana).
Becomes more bitter (orange peel, aspirin) after addition of water.
Appearance of coconut with aeration.

Comments: I really liked and it would have been perfect if alcohol had been better integrated and that the addition of water didn't made appear the taste of aspirin in the aftertaste.
Nice surprise, anyway!

Comment by Jean-Michel
Colour: Pale gold.

Nose: Once that the little ethery note has vanished, there’s nothing else but the pure pleasure of a high end malt that spent quite a while in a nice Bourbon cask. Vanilla marshmallow. Lollipop. Sponge cake largely soaked with rum. Then the spices arrive in strength, cinnamon first. Long pepper from Java, with its hot and woody side. Strawberry soup cooked with pepper and several vanilla-flavoured sugar in a nice Sauternes wine. Tinned pineapple. Quite a high strength (54%?), which balances aromas that announce a syrupy and sticky mouth. Reminds me of the very best 1972 Glengoynes.

Mouth: What can we add after this nose? That the mouth is extravagant all the same. First, it tingles like “Pop Rooks” powder. No kidding! Aromas are still there. The same ones. And in addition, a little lychee and mangosteen. It’s sticky, fruity, and spicy as anticipated. And even more powerful than expected. First sips anaesthetize the palate quite a bit, but this power balances a mouth that otherwise may well be a bit cloying.

Finish: Long, tasty. OK, there’s a little woody bitterness at the end, but a couple of sips are enough to tame it.

Comment: An extravagant whisky. Perhaps am I fooled by a virgin wood cocktail (which I’m quite unsure because of the slight bitterness at the end), but who cares, that’s too delightfull. So let’s enjoy.

Comment by Canis_Lupus
Colour: white wine, straw.
Nose: nose first very special, very fragrant. Spices galore and heady flower notes. Enriched quickly to fruit in alcohol, then crystallized fruit and fruit pastes: prunes, plums, damsons, blackcurrants, ... Some nuts, cashews, pecans, dates, figs. Statement by beautiful tangy pleasantly proportioned.
Adding water soothes the spices, which releases the fruity notes.
Palate: It is instantly installed in the same universe through the nose. Very expressive, slightly tingling alcohol but in a rather positive way, which further boosts the mouth.
Water has the same effect as on the nose, making this whisky more easy drinkable.
Final: In the wake of the mouth, but focusing mainly on the spicy side.
The water seems to take away the start of the final, but to exacerbate it better later.

Comment: Very expressive and generous to all floors, very pleasant. Interesting and easier with water but no more authentic.

Comment by Arno
Nose: powerful, some feminine fragrant indescribable. However, caught up by notes of wood just cut, damp cloth drying ... This is transient, and continues with hints pastry and sweet: brioche, fruit cake? Fresh fruit: greengage? Spices, anise. Touch of malt and fine smoke, forest honey, cereal (muesli). Engaging!
Mouth: very intense, even burning. Strong aromas of dry wood, malt, smoke, fruit (apple?), licorice. Honey, spices. Roasted cereals. Towards the end, a note of strawberry appears ("tagada" candy). Fun !
Water gives a dram better integrated, but brought out the "wet cloth", that I can not explain.
Final: strawberry, and a sweet touch of Pedro Ximenez.
Conclusion: An interesting, complex, evolving. The mouth is integrated limit anyway ... and the wet cloth drying is undesirable. Good but not great either foot.

Commentaire de Dagde
Color: Gold
Nose: Quite round, chocolate, nougat, hazelnut and some wet vegetation with a hint of iodine to break the sweetness - a little cheesy -. A flattering but adventurous side. Hints of fresh fruit - pear, grapefruit - arrive with aeration. This is modulated, powerful and addictive.
Taste: There are surprisingly incorporating chocolate pink grapefruit with sugar in her lap. Simple but effective in avoiding the appearance of Pim's sickening. With water, it reveals more cereal notes. Not super sharp but really nice.
Finale: It is in the line of the mouth with hints of hazelnut and extra grain.

Conclusion: A consistent whisky that gives pride to the duo-chocolate fruit. Avoiding the pastry effect without betraying his balance, he succeeded his bet. The nose seduces with its markers poles apart from each other.

Comment by mapi
Color: golden brown with highlights
The nose has notes of wax and almond paste and solvent which joined the bite of alcohol. Finally arrive notes of sweet caramel kind Werther's Original.
The taste is strongly influenced by alcohol before giving way to aromas of almond and returning the solvent noticed the nose. This produces a very slight impression of sugar.
The finish is smooth with a medium length. Return of the kernel and some bitterness on persistence.

Whisky with tone. Mastered a very sherry. Everything is beautifully made.

Comment by Alexandre
The nose, leaving evacuate initially much too much alcohol, is once calmed, very full and complex, but sorely lacking in precision. There are just a jumble of yellow fruit that it's hard to name, vanilla, wood and farm. With aeration, there are also heady flowers, a little iodine and seaweed. The nose becomes more rustic, with always this lack of precision.

The mouth is on the lemon and strawberry. It reminds one ice. Then, it is much more powerful and rocky, with wax, some peat, yellow fruits (pears, peaches) interspersed with a powerful wave farm. With aeration, we see a slight exotic fruity (pineapple). As the nose is very complex, pleasant to drink, but not very precise.

The final medium length, is on the yellow fruit (bananas). There is also the farm, the young liquor (Calvados) and strawberry candy.

Finally, one atypical whisky , as complex as imprecise.

Color: Gold
Nose: Floral, about lavender and heather, slightly fruity and malty.
There are notes of solvent that make the nose unpleasant.
With water, the nose is more balanced, on autumnal fruits, marzipan and herbal notes.
Taste: The alcohol is present in the mouth, starts on liquorice, nuts, honey and dried fruits.
The water shall prosper, bringing more balance and roundness.
The sherry notes becomes woody, coconut and overripe fruit.
Finish: rather long on spices, hints of Turkish delight and candies.

Comment by TTN
Color: gold
Nose: quite incisive (it tingles!) And rather difficult to define. I perceive cereals, plum and salt. There are also spices that are specifically invited the black pepper and ginger. Wood is also quite present.
Mouth: First soft close (do not lining the mouth). Salt, gentian, it is not very conventional but interesting. She gets sharper and herb (thyme, rosemary) and still very salty.
Finish: rather long, bitter and salty.
Overall impression: A malt aperitif that does not seem very old but truly original. Certainly from the coast because of its flavor profile ... but there are often surprises!

Comment by Amor57
The nose at first appears quite aggressive, despite a rather eclectic range: coffee with milk, hay, mint, floral look far. Alcohol is present without being too annoying. Over time, he turns to the mineral (house dust), with notes of yellow fruits (apricot, peach), green wood, something marine (iodine), the smoky, sharp and simultaneous notes of fresh parsley and pineapple. With aeration the finesse increases, but it takes time. The mouth and the final play of the same range, with small variations: Attack on the fruit, a touch of tannic bitterness, Peony, Hazelnut. In the final, additional notes of marshmallow and bitter almond. Good length.
A very pleasant whisky these notes had not been bitter at the start of mouth.

Comment by Piazzolla
Nose: Lively on fresh fruit (apple, citrus) and spices (especially vanilla). Slightly spicy and herbaceous. Beautiful balance and fade with aeration.
Palate: lively also. Side "old", in opposition to the mouth, with notes of polish (or wax) and almost burnt caramel. Also spice. Salt.
Moderately long finish on a light bitterness and a note of dry hay.

Conclusion Pleasant but lacks the overall density. Originality aromatic interesting but no favorite for me.

Comment by Dede
Color: Gold
Nose: Powerful, the white fruit, the pear brandy, grappa, icing sugar, lemon and then something floral. Alcohol stifles a bit, this lacks definition. It improves a bit with water. Here that is open during the few days between the two tastings. The notes of brandy, which could evoke an immature whisky disappeared. The ensemble became suave, sweet, white fruit flavors sharing the limelight.
Palate: The attack is pungent, alcohol burns the tongue, here's something that will require water. Otherwise, sweet flavors dominate, with marshmallow and a little violet sweets. It's better with a little water. Above are added to flavor the acidity of lemon and a touch of bitterness vegetal that balance the sweetness of the mouth.
Finish: Long, slightly acid and bitter.

Conclusion: A malt that is not unpleasant, but where alcohol is present too.

Comment by Savoureur
appearance: yellow gold
nose: low intensity, alcohol too present masking the flavors even after 30 minutes of breathing, light fruitiness, toasted peanuts, chammalows, ammonia
taste: low to medium intensity, alcohol in the foreground, pepper, sourness, slightly bitterness of vegetables
finish short
With water: alcohol less dominating, lots of vanilla on the nose, taste drier and with less pepper
Conclusion:
Alcohol is far too dominant for me in the nose and the taste, I can not enjoy this whisky

Color: Yellow Gold
Nose: very sweet yellow fruits (apples, bananas, oranges). Alcohol quiet discreet. A slight side of orange lemonade forgotten a few hours in a glass.
Palate: Alcohol more present than in the nose, even dominant. A medicinal taste flat throughout the tasting. Adding water makes no difference.

Final medium to long, bittersweet taste.

The nose is pleasantly marked by aromas of malt (muesli) with interesting but far from dominant fruity traces. A nice balance and a nice development with aeration.
The first palate clearly sets the tone. That's a nInchgower with this whatever makint its typicality. A wonderful whisky mouth. The balance of the nose is always present plus those special notes making this a "must distillery" for me. Not any discomfort due to alcohol.
The finish is unfortunately too short ... but still nice.

Color: Light gold The nose reveals notes of bitter gentian and some tingling due to an obvious presence of alcohol. After a few moments notes of orange peel are appearing before evolving into heather and heady flowers. The whole keeps a good balance. On the palate, the hints of orange peel are confirmed and everything is in a nice pleasant register of vegetable bitterness. It is not very complex and is well balanced. The finish is quite long and the feeling of bitterness remains quite long.

A very clear floral nose, (undergrowth flowers), discrete exotic fruit hints and a touch of sherry make a very interesting introduction fot this whisky which seems to be very nice and complex from the very first nosing.
In the palate, a very pleasant impression of sherry, mixed to clear but not boring woody hints. But finally the sherry keeps dominating the whole.
A nice finish, wel balanced and perfumed, going from walnut to liquorice. A lingering and warm finish.
An excellent surprise.
