Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 
Bottled by: Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers 70cl / 47.5%

A bright young small batch 5-year-old Inchgower 2016 bottled without colouring or chill filtration by Morrison Distillers for their Carn Mor Strictly Limited series.

This 5-year-old Inchgower 2016 was matured in a handful of first fill ex-bourbon barrels, with 910 bottles released at Carn Mor's preferred strength of 47.5%. Inchgower is capable of very long ageing, and shines in either bourbon or sherry casks, but the distillery's clean, taut spirit works well as a youngster when it's had an active cask. This should be perfect summer whisky.

Age - it's just a number

I learnt something new with this Carn Mor Inchgower - that there isn't an obvious relationship between age of maturation and standard of dram. The interaction between the spirit and the first fill bourbon barrel must have been intense such that Morrison Distillers deemed this ready to bottle after 5 (and a bit) years of maturation. The resulting whisky carries a mince-pie fruit characteristic with butterscotch, vanilla, honeycomb notes and some orchard fruit, like stewed pears in the mix. At only £45 for the bottle, incredible value for money and a great easy-sipping dram.
