Review: Gordon and MacPhail Inchgower 2005 (Connoisseurs Choice)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 19, 2018

The Connoisseurs Choice is a series of malt whiskies from various Scottish distilleries many of which are no longer producing whisky.  Boasting over 40 different single malts available from the Scottish regions The sheer variety of styles and flavours of whisky available from Gordon and Macphail’s Connoisseurs range is staggering.

The Inchgower Distillery was built in 1871 in the Lowland Region of Scotland. The facility is currently owned by Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd (since 1938), however the current operator of Inchgower is the spirits conglomerate, Diageo. The Distillery has four operating stills with the whisky produced contributing a major portion of Bell’s Blended Whisky.

Gordon and MacPhail Inchgower Distillery 2005 (Connoisseurs Choice) is a Single Malt Whisky which was distilled in 2005 and bottled in 2016. It was matured in refill sherry casks with no special finishing. The Spirit was bottled at 46 % abv.

Here is a link to my review:

Review: Gordon and MacPhail Inchgower 2005 (Connoisseurs Choice)

“… The dram is off the beaten path so to speak with interesting flavours and a firm spicy bite. I like it much better with ice than without, and I also suspect my appreciation would have grown if my sample had been larger. There is a real “once you get used to this ou are really going to like it” quality about the whisky …”

Please enjoy my review as well as the cocktail suggestion which follows.
