I got a chance to nose and taste the 18-Year-Old. A 46% single malt with a final maturation in Oloroso Sherry butts.
Looking across the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Arran from the Ayrshire mainland on a clear day fascinated me as a child. Trips to Arran with my family and school excursions felt like I was a million miles away from anywhere.
On a rare Scottish sunny day, the Isle of Arran resembles the Caribbean with palm trees dotted around and blue shimmering seas at every turn. Arran is an Island I had grown to love and that love affair has never ended. It has only got stronger since the Isle of Arran Distillers were born.
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.

An evening with remarkable whiskies. That Boutique-y Whisky Company is an independent bottler which offers stunning whiskies from world-renowned brands and distilleries. This evening I had the pleasure to try 5 of them, online with other whisky enthusiasts. The foreplay towards this evening was tough, very tough.
This was an amazing evening and with great hosts. As ever, we all had a lot of fun while nosing and tasting the fantastic five.
Aberfeldy 12 Years, it has been a while since I had a glass of this whisky. Lucky for you I wrote down the tasting notes for myself to share with the world. Aberfeldy has a great range of whisky and this 12 year old lad is one of them.
I wrote down in the tasting notes:
“While pouring the whisky in the Glencairn glass, you could smell the tropics. The birds playing in the garden, looking for food and chirping with joy. That is how I felt, chirping with joy”.
