Adelphi Inchgower 12 Year Old 2007, Scotland, United Kingdom 70cl


Notify me when this product is available:

12 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Whisky, 70cl. No. of bottles: 561 from cask No.: 801246 from Scotland, United Kingdom. 55.8% ABV. 

Drawn from a refill Oloroso sherry butt this has the colour of copper with a moderate bead. The nose delivered lemon drizzle cake, almost posset, profiteroles, nougat & crème anglaise with ripe and juicy sultanas. On the taste we found macerated red fruit, dark chocolate, becoming oilier (typical of make) almost savory like Bovril and salted fudge.

This whisky has plenty of character and breaks the mould of your stereotypical Speyside whiskies, which is another of its charms. It’s not without its flaws and could be more refined but it’s for the more experienced drinker, rather than playing it safe. I’m absolutely fine with that and it adds to the experience rather than taking away. The spirit has a good, waxy mouthfeel and the flavours combine well, offering something distinctly unique. Price is a bit punchy in comparison to more recognisable 12 Year Olds but you do get quality. I would buy it again, even at this price.

Nose: Grainy, grassy, fruity and woody. Fresh pine and cut grass jump out. Then there’s hazelnut caramel milk chocolates. Ripe red currants. Sweet, citrusy. Limoncello. Melted butter. Vanilla custard. Barley fields. Candle wax.

Palate: Layered with dried fruits, woody notes and umami flavours. Raisins, figs and mince pies. Spicy notes of crushed ginger nuts and cinnamon. Rich caramels. Savoury and buttery like melted butter on whole grain toast. Brandy snaps. Roasted, salted corn.

Finish: Rather Spritzich (fizzy) in the finish. Peppery with spices and oak tannins. Orange peel. Medium-long in the finish.
