Review No.112. Inchgower 14 Year Old

Whisky: Inchgower 14 Year Old Single Malt Whisky, 43%

Nose: Savoury, malt, cereal, butterscotch

Taste: Candy, citrus rind, grass, herbs

Finish: Cereal, black tea

Score: 2.75

Summary: I had trouble getting to know this one.  Of course a drop of water and a bit of time helped open it up.  There is a nice maltiness to this with soft citrus and herbal notes surrounding it.  This is another that stands out from the others in the range because of this unique character.  This is a light and delicate malt that would make an excellent highball in the summer.


Scoring scale: My scores reflect a balance of the overall experience, availability and cost for a whisky,

1 – not to my preference

2 – tastes fine but does not excite me

3 – more to my liking and would revisit occasionally

4 – very much to my liking and would consider as a regular feature on my whisky shelf

5 – permanent feature on my whisky shelf
