Middle length finish with a sweet raisin and milk chocolate finish. A fruitcake comes to mind, a very rich one.
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…
Thank you Erik for providing us with a sample of this great bottling! This Inchgower bottling is part of his latest release which contained also an Auchentoshan 15 year old (matured in bourbon) and an Aultmore 6 year old (matured in sherry)
