Inchgower 2002, Gordon & MacPhail

The Inchgower 2002 single malt, 46% strength bottled in 2015. Bottled as part of the Connoisseurs Choice range by Gordon & MacPhail, this is again a fantastic Speyside whisky.

The Inchgower is a whisky you would have after a nice dinner with your love. Stuffed with an amazing dinner, this dram would be the best sweet course you can think of after a meal.

Chocolate-pairing, however, is a match, you can’t resist either.

Inchgower distillery is a whisky distillery producing a single malt of the same name located on the outskirts of Buckie, Moray, Scotland. Located on the coast, in the northeast of the Speyside, Inchgower is now owned by Diageo, but unfortunately not open for public.

The Gordon & MacPhail Inchgower 2002 whisky is matured in refill sherry hogshead barrels. And the only way for you to discover the red fruit overload in your mouth is after drinking a glass of this whisky. An explosion, that blows you away for sure.

This is what I thought:

Gordon & MacPhail Inchgower 2002 (46%)

  • Color: Nice gold
  • Nose: Cacao, caramel, pineapple, oranges, sultana’s, red fruit, pomegranate. crushed coffee beans. brown sugar and hints of peach
  • Taste: Red fruit, strawberries, blueberries, sherry, peeled oranges, lemon and hints of vanilla, dark chocolate, spicy and creamy
  • Finish: Lovely warm

“Whisky, like a beautiful man, demands appreciation.

You gaze first, then it’s time to drink.”

I am a fan of Gordon & MacPhail and they got me tied up even more with this release and I think, this never goes away, ever. When you have never, ever heard about this legend, look them up in Elgin and pay them a visit. You will be rewarded.
