Around 99% of the production from Inchgower is meant for the blending industry, so you will not encounter this malt easily in official bottlings. There are a Manager’s Dram a two Rare Malts, but we try the easily obtainable one, the Inchgower 14 Year Old in the so-called Flora & Fauna series.
The nose is quite fresh and fruity. Think apples – make those cider apples – gooseberries and pineapple. Loads of breakfast cereals too. This is nice.
The palate is mild with some lemongrass and pepper, joined by citrus (think lemon and lime), some ginger and a touch of oak. Mildly drying.
That drying effect continues in the rather short finish.
A lovely spring whisky, no more, no less.
