A conundrum, in which the aromatics, and even the flavour, change continually.
Inchgower works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water.
Region Speyside, but more coastal than Speyside.
Appearance Deep amber.
Body Medium bodied and mouth filling.
Nose Rich and deep and faintly toffied. After a while offers some short-crust pastry and fruit, then vaguely 'gun-metal'.
Palate Sweet overall, but also curiously mouth-drying, with some salt and traces of oil.
Finish A saccharine-bitter finish that leaves an aftertaste of almonds.
