Inchgower 27 Year Old
70cl / 55.3%
Special Releases 2018
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
The first entry in Diageo's Special Releases for northern Speysider Inchgower, part of the 2018 edition of the range. Aged for 27 years in refill American-oak hogsheads, this is a great example of the distillery's fruity and salty spirit – it's by the coast and the distillers swear the sea gives the spirit its salty tang.
Inchgower 27 Year Old Reviews
Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Fruit and spice with lime boiled sweets and waxy apples. Sweet icing and light fruit cake hide behind, studded with a handful of nuts.
Sweet and creamy. Apple puree is dusted with cinnamon and sawdust. A touch of brine develops along with orchard and citrus fruit: fresh apple, crunchy pear and sweet orange.
A touch of sichuan pepper numbness, soft spice and lingering apple.
Classic Speyside with a pinch of salt. I don’t put too much truck in the 'salty whiskies come from by the sea' theory, but it seems to work here.
