Inchgower 20, 2000-2020, Sherry Cask, 50.7% – Maltbarn

Inchgower 1982-2011, 29yo, 54.6% – Duncan Taylor

Ah, Inchgower 1982. A whisky that got popular because a lot of it tastes like Clynelish from the same era. At least, in my circles that’s what it’s famous for. It is also why I bought this bottle a year … Continue reading

During my last Blog Birthday Bash buddy TT left me a sample of this. Contrary to what usually happens (I’m trying to improve this, it’s going better) it didn’t disappear in my nigh-infinite sample stash but I drank it soon. … Continue reading
