Inchgower 23yo – Kintra – Tasting Notes

Nose
Sweet, green tea, liqeurish, anice, citrus, stinging nettle, elderflower, grapefruit, fresh, garden mint, rose hip flowers, dried fruits, vanilla, raisin, hints of marzipan and rich fruitcake in the back.

Palate
Pepper, warm, sweet, marzipan, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, soft honey, milk chocolate, creamy, fresh, oranges, kiwi fruit, raisin, vanilla, warm baking spices, Bastogne cookies.

Finish
Middle length finish with a sweet raisin and milk chocolate finish. A fruitcake comes to mind, a very rich one.

Score
This dram needed a bit of time to open up, but when it did, it revealed some great fresh and sweet notes. Nicely balanced, beautiful nose and palate. 8 out of 10 for me. Would love to have a bottle of this one in the collection…
