Inchgower 1991/2015 (51.8%, Sansibar and S Spirits Shop, 132 bottles).
Colour: pale gold.
Nose it’s rather fresh, both grassy and citrusy, with touches of plasticine and citron. Fresh barley. More and more yeasty malt after that, sweet maize bread, a little clay, damp grass. I find this rather elegant, and quite complex. Perhaps some Wulong tea. With water: quite love these whiffs of camphor and eucalyptus.
Taste: (neat): creamy, quite spicy, starting with a little coconut, Thai basil, lemon… I’m all for these unusual styles, as long as balance has been found. You could spray some of this onto crab meat. With water: gets even more eastern-oriental. Lemongrass and green pepper.
Finish: medium, with a rather perfect lemony/spicy side. Tangerines in the aftertaste.
