Next up – Inchgower. A distillery that seems to rarely cross my desk and indeed is not bottled as frequently as soon due to its use in Bells and also elements of the Johnnie Walker range. The Watt Whisky expression has been matured in an ex-bourbon hogshead for 13 years. 297 bottles have been produced at an ABV of 56%. They’re still available via The Whisky Exchange for £60.95.
Despite having a lot of time for salty coastal whiskies, I’m surprised to see this is The Dramble’s first logged review from Inchgower - as always, too many whiskies, too little time. Nearly all of Inchgower’s production goes into blended whisky production, notably Bells, but also elements from the Johnnie Walker series. Those of you who explored the 2018 Diageo’s Special Releases might have come across it twice – both in a rare original bottling at 27 years old, but also forming part of ‘Cladach’ – Diageo’s seemingly now annual blended malt, which this year focussed on its coastal whiskies.
