Inchgower 27 year Old Cask Strength, is the first ever Inchgower to feature in the Diageo Special releases series. This expression has been aged for 27 years in refill American Oak Hogsheads. The result is a fabulous, whisky that is a great example of the distillery's fruity and salty spirit. Note: Reduced due to marks on label. 

Natural colour, Un-chill filtered, 70cl at 55.3% Vol.

TASTING NOTES


APPEARANCE

Full yellow gold.

NOSE

Dry and savoury, with ripe fruits on a herbal and slightly spicy base; fruit boxes packed with red apples, a dusty malt barn, hessian sacks and walnuts, nut brittle toffee. Subtly aromatic, with mature oaky vanilla, dark chocolate, dry sawdust, and polish. Later, sweet hints of melon.

TASTE

First, cool and tangy, smooth and with a sweeter taste than expected; a sugary fruit compote. Soon drying, powerful and mint-clean, with a charred bitterness; flinty and toasty, growing increasingly appetising, with dark chocolate and grape skins, then savoury.

FINISH

Long, with considerable spice; herbal, with drying cedar and clove, and black tea notes. An appealing charred and savoury note.
