2008 Douglas Laing & Co. Provenance Inchgower 8 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$110.00 Bottle
  • ABV 46%

A whisky from a very, very quiet distillery. Apart from the delightful Flora & Fauna Diageo release, indie bottlings have been pretty much the only available source for Inchgower, and even these are few and far between. This Douglas Laing edition was distilled in 2008 and bottled in August 2016 from one refill hogshead. Non-chill filtered and natural colour.

Tasting notes... Very pale straw gold appears like young Riesling. Lots of fresh sponge cake to the opening sniffs as well as a sweet honeycomb edge. Almost melted butter-like with further exposure. A lighter bodied malt. Semi-sweet, floral soft flavours hint at lemon tart, straw and white pepper followed by hints of caramel and bitter cocoa in the aftertaste. Shows excellent persistence. 46% Alc./Vol.

The vast majority of Inchgower's output goes to blends, being a key part of Bell's and also employed by Johnnie Walker and White Horse. Built in a coastal Speyside locale in 1871 to replace Tochineal Distillery but liquidated in 1903, the Buckie Council purchased the concern in 1936 and ownership was transferred to Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd in 1938. Bells modernised the distillery and expanded the number of stills. Now owned by the corporate giant, Diageo, it's reported that less than one percent of the total production is bottled as a single malt.
