Inchgower 2002 (13 Year old) – 46% – Gordon & Macphail Connoisseurs Choice

Inchgower 2002


NOSE: 25
Next to no trace of any sort of spirit or fire.
Sherry, butter and faint demerara notes all obvious.
Hints of baked apples begin to make themselves known.
PALATE: 23
Sweet but restrained sherry influence appears straight away with the baked apples from the nose pulling through, but the demerara dying back.
Slight nuttiness hits the back of the throat, pecans maybe.
Mediocre mouth feel; not thin yet not thick.
FINISH: 20
Medium, gentle finish with resurgent butter.
Traces of nuttiness and demerara still present.
PERSONAL: 7
A very light, pleasurable dram – reminiscent of apple crumble after a Sunday roast.
Very easy to drink and inoffensive.
Would be interesting to taste with a slightly higher ABV to see if the finish develops a little more.
All in all a sweet, soft dram that I challenge anyone to dislike.

TOTAL SCORE: 75
